Domino’s Pizza is adding 800 custom-branded Chevy Bolt electric vehicles to its delivery stock, saying it will be the biggest EV pizza-delivery fleet in the country.

The 62-year-old company said it ordered the EVs in an effort to attract more drivers who don’t have their own cars and to cut pollutant emissions and lower maintenance costs.

It will start to use 100 of the 2023 Bolts this month and roll out the rest in coming months.

Domino’s started deliveries with a Volkswagen Beetle in 1960. It said its goal is to have a delivery fleet with net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. It currently also uses electric bicycles and scooters in 24 markets.

In a press release announcing the Domino’s Bolts, General Motors Vice President of GM Fleet Ed Peper said GM plans to eliminate tailpipe emissions from new U.S. light-duty vehicles by 2035. Many manufacturers have set similar goals in a move away from internal-combustion-engine vehicles.
