The company is trying to ramp up its production
Rivian is still aiming to produce 25,000 vehicles by the end of the year
Out of this number, 1,227 units were delivered
Start up automaker Rivian has released its production and delivery figures for the first quarter of 2022 and they show a slow ramp up.
Since production began in the last months of 2021, Rivian has been slowly trying to increase the rate at which vehicles roll off its assembly line in Normal, Illinois.
During the first months of the year, the automaker produced 2,553 vehicles, of which 1,227 were delivered to their awaiting buyers.
This is an improvement compared to the last quarter of 2021, when 1,015 units took to the streets, but production will have to increase dramatically in the next few months for the company to reach its target of 25,000 units in 2022.
Depsite this, Rivian is confident in its abilities to meet this target and it is even more ambitious for the years following, with goals set at 150,000 units in 2023 and up to 400,000 units per year once its second factory in Georgia begins operations.
These numbers include all of the products currently made by Rivian, the R1T, the R1S and the EDV Van. This last vehicle is expected to be the one that will boost the company’s production figures the most, since Amazon ordered 100,000 units of the Van to be added to its delivery fleet over the next few years. The R1T pickup and R1S SUV account for 80,000 orders.
The automaker doesn’t break down its production and delivery figures into different models, so it is impossible to know exactly how many of each are now on the road.
