What’s Next: Rivian has 83,000 R1 preorders as of March 8. The company said that preorders continue to accelerate even with the new pricing announcement.

Rivian sees fiscal year vehicle productions hitting 25,000.

“During the next 12 months, we will remain focused on ramping up production at our plant in Normal, Illinois, as well as initiating work on our second domestic manufacturing facility in Georgia,” the company said.

The company’s goal is to have an annual capacity to produce 600,000 vehicles from its planned facilities.

The company sees supply chain challenges continuing in 2022. The weekly production rate in the two weeks prior to March 8 was around double the rate in the fourth quarter.

Production is expected to be scaled for the production of the EDVs for Amazon and Rivian is "also in the process of exploring ways to further expand our commercial partnership with Amazon.”
