Back in 2017, Walmart set the commercial electric vehicle market on fire when the company announced it was purchasing 15 semis from Tesla.
The idea seemed more like a novelty at the time, with Walmart stating the vehicles would help the company meet some of its long-term sustainability goals, including lowering emissions.
What a difference a couple of years makes in this fast-moving, high-tech industry.
Amazon (AMZN) recently announced that it placed an order for 100,000 new electric vans from electric vehicle (EV) startup Rivian. The order amounts to the largest purchase of light-duty EVs in history. It will essentially double the number of such vehicles on the planet.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said the order will help the company meet its sustainability goals 10 years early and represents a sea change in how a company that delivers more than 10 billion items per year can switch up its physical infrastructure.
To me, the bold move also means that the starting gun has been fired in the race to build out the next generation fleet of EVs — and bring potential life-changing windfalls to early investors who can spot the right opportunity to get in.
Amazon already invested $440 million into Rivian’s EV technologies earlier this year. Rivian also has secured a $500 million investment from Ford, while Cox Automotive chipped in $350 million.
A clear pattern is emerging here. Large auto manufacturers see the writing on the wall — EVs are the future of cars, trucks, scooters, and just about everything else with wheels.
And that future looks bright as the total costs for fleets of EVs are falling, particularly when you take into account savings on maintenance, fuel and ancillaries realized over the vehicle lifetime. New York City recently conducted a cost analysis for a portion of its fleet of light-passenger vehicles and found EVs were cheaper than gas or hybrid models.
Rivian purchased a 2.6 million square foot assembly plant in Illinois to fulfill Amazon’s order. Amazon says the electric vans will start to roll out for duty in 2021 with 10,000 ready by the following year. It’s shooting to have the full 100,000 on the road by 2030, when the fleet is expected to save about 4 million metric tons of carbon per year.
Make no mistake, the market-moving and industry-disrupting power of a company like Amazon is difficult to overstate.
And it’s already got some company.
Furniture juggernaut Ikea says its going to make all home deliveries with electric vehicles in five major cities — Amsterdam, Los Angeles, New York City, Paris and Shanghai.
Flush with investor cash, Rivian is on track to produce more than 60,000 vehicles by 2022. And its moves mean competition with Tesla and other brands will really ramp up.
The world’s leading auto companies are all preparing for this new EV world.
And as they do, they’ll be reaching for a ground-breaking battery technology unlike anything that’s come before.
I call it the ‘Quantum Glass’ Battery.
For early investors, it presents the kind of moneymaking opportunity that could turn a tiny initial stake into an absolute fortune.
According to automotive industry insiders, one creation using the Quantum Glass Battery tech can fully charge an electric car in as little as 60 seconds — faster than it takes to fill up your car’s gas tank. Consumers will be able to travel 1,000 miles on a single charge.
Think about that. That’s nearly triple the distance of the best-performing electric cars on the market right now, and more than eight times farther than the average electric car.
Japan is the current favorite to mass-produce these next-generation batteries, and France is eager to get in on this action through the Renault-Nissan partnership.
One tiny company in the United Kingdom holds a few key patents, and Toyota is relying on it for its electric cars… yet most folks have never heard of it.
I’ve got a full presentation on the investment opportunity in this new technology — nicknamed the “Jesus Battery.”
P.S. Insiders are already calling this potential new battery a “paradigm shift” in energy technology. Forbes calls it simply: “The battery that could change the world.”
Trust me, it’s amazing.
This breakthrough device could change just about everything in your life – from how you get around to how you communicate with others… even the way you think about the world.
For early investors, this presents the kind of moneymaking opportunity that could turn a tiny initial stake into an absolute fortune.
Folks who get in on this breakthrough now, BEFORE it’s rolled out on a mass scale, will have the chance to be a part of perhaps the single largest legal creation of wealth in the last 25 years.

The talking heads are calling for a bear market, when in reality the stock market is poised to rally into the end of the year. Plus, the brokerage fee wars heat up, and once again Matt bashes WeWork and lists IPOs that have proven money can be made in newly listed stocks.
The car as we know it is on the verge of a transformative change not seen since Karl Benz invented it nearly 135 years ago. In fact, the whole transportation sector is now poised for its version of 2.0.
I’m not exaggerating when I say this will lead to trillions of dollars in money sloshing around in the coming decades. What is coming will create one of the five biggest investment opportunities you’ll ever see in your life, no matter when you were born. Learn more here.
Marijuana has been outlawed most everywhere for decades… but now a wave of legalization is starting to sweep the world. This will create massive new markets and massive stock market winners. Learn more here.
The next big breakthrough in battery technology is an innovation that will have multi-trillion-dollar economic implications. I can tell you this mega innovation isn’t a matter of “if,” it’s a matter of “when,” and I believe it will go down as one of the greatest inventions of the 21st century.
Those on the right side of this innovation stand to build incredible wealth… just like people did from the creation of the internet and the smartphone. Think of this as your “field guide” for profiting from the next big battery breakthrough. Learn more here.
