Truck model vehicles or can be seen as pick-ups and double cabins are the favorites of the people of the United States. When Rivian Automotive Incorporation offers this model in the electric car category, pre-orders or pre-orders continue to flow.
However, as quoted by Reuters, Rivian must delay the delivery of electric trucks and electric sports cars with large batteries until 2023.
Rivian Automotive Incorporation’s Chief Executive, RJ Scaringe, as quoted by Reuters on Wednesday (12/29/2021) said that of about 71,000 Rivian pre-orders, most of them were for the R1T pickup truck and R1S SUV in the United States and Canada.
Those options are the vehicle version with the option of a small battery pack, which provides a range of 500 km on a single charge.
“To serve the largest number of pre-order holders, we will prioritize building an Adventure Pack with a large battery pack over the next year,” explains RJ Scaringe.
After the electric vehicle maker reported its first-quarter results as a listed company earlier this month, RJ Scaringe has outlined production challenges by citing global supply chain constraints, the COVID-19 pandemic, a tight labor market, and near-term issues surrounding manufacturing electric battery modules.
Rivian has delivered 386 of the 652 vehicles it builds, including pickups and SUVs.
The larger battery pack, called the Max pack, is expected to provide a range of 645 km on a single charge. Only 20 percent off preorders for the Max pack.
Rivian said that in early 2022 it will introduce a feature for customers on Rivian accounts, displaying the estimated delivery time of the customer’s order in question.
