Rivian Automotive Inc reports that they have produced 1,015 vehicles by 2021. Of these, Rivian has delivered as many as 920 vehicles to their customers, as reported by Reuters and TechCrunch on Tuesday (11/1/2022). Rivian produced mainly its R1T electric pickup truck, since it started producing them in September.
Despite the falling target, Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe noted some time ago that the company has experienced an increase as expected.
“Battery limitations do not represent a long-term challenge for us. We have an upcoming second line that will put battery module production ahead in terms of capacity of other plant areas,” Scaringe said as quoted by Antara.
Rivian said in a statement sent by e-mail that Rod Copes was retiring from his position as chief operating officer.
Ford in the latest report will increase the production capacity of the F-150 Lightning to 150,000 vehicles per year by mid-2023 in response to high customer demand.
