100,000 vans as a delivery contract over an extended period of time. Its not like they can get them all at once.

Should be good to establish Rivian as a brand with a contract that'll span several years. Also, if they are making 'Dedicated' parcel delivery vans they can try to sell the vehicle to all the other postal and local delivery businesses as well, maybe even initially design to be easy to manufacture in RHD and LHD so they can target world wide markets
