What’s Next: Rivian said the company’s core focus is to ramp up production but admitted that supply chain constraints could be a limiting factor.

“Based on our latest understanding of the supply chain environment, we are reaffirming our 2022 production guidance of 25,000 total units produced,” the company said.

The increased ramp-up in production and added second shift for the R1 are keys for the fourth quarter, the company said.

Rivian plans to launch its R2 platform in 2026, which would unlock “a global market opportunity."

The company ended the third quarter with $14 billion in cash. Rivian said it believed it can fund operations with cash on hand through 2025, excluding the impact of an investment in a joint venture with Mercedes-Benz Group ADR MBGYY.

RIVN Price Action: Rivian shares are up 7.41% to $30.15 in after-hours trading Wednesday.
