Rivian’s deliveries may be delayed until 2021

News

Rivian, a North American EV maker, has indicated that the start of production and deliveries of its R1T all-electric pickup has been pushed to 2021 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Info
The pickup was earlier scheduled for deliveries by the end of this year, followed by the company's all electric SUV, the R1S.

The EV maker's production preparations have been thrown off track due to the pandemic. The company has been prepping the former Mitsubishi plant at in Normal, Illinois, as its production base. Of around 300 employees involved in the construction activities at the facility, only a fuselage team of 11 employees are currently working onsite.

“The world has changed a lot in these last few weeks. We've shut down all Rivian facilities to protect our team and to help slow the spread of COVID-19. While this situation has required us to redefine workflows and rethink the ways we collaborate, it hasn't stopped us from making progress. This evolving new reality is not without impact on our programme timing. While we expect some level of delay, we are working to minimise the disruption to our launch schedule and as we better understand the extent of the impact, you will be the first to know,” the company said in an e-mail to its customers.

This interruption in production is not expected to affect Rivian's delivery of electric vans to Amazon which are scheduled for 2021. Supply chain operations of the company may also get affected due to the pandemic.
