Domino's is going electric.

Not in the kitchen, but on the road.

The pizza chain has ordered 855 Chevrolet Bolt EVs to be used as delivery vehicles.

"Domino's has always been on the cutting edge of pizza delivery and electric delivery cars make sense as vehicle technology continues to evolve," Domino's CEO Russell Weiner said.

"We've made a commitment to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, and this is one way we can begin reducing our environmental impact, one delivery at a time."

The cars will be distributed to corporate-owned and franchised stores among its network of over 6,000 outlets.

The four-door subcompact has a range of 259 miles per charge, which is more than enough for the daily cycle at many stores.
