Rivian Expects to Deliver 25,000 Vehicles this Year

Global supply chain issues slashed Rivian’s production plans for the year, but things are looking up

  • The original plan was to build 50,000 in 2022.

  • Since production began last November to the end of June, almost 8,000 vehicles have been assembled.

Despite numerous setbacks, Rivian remains a darling among EV start-up companies. Their monster IPO late last year brought boatloads of funds to the company which, at the time, expected to assemble and deliver 50,000 examples of its R1T truck and R1S SUV in 2022. That number was revised to 25,000 in March.

The news hurt the automaker however Rivian has confirmed that they are in fact on track to deliver the update number. In the second quarter of 2022, between April and June, they produced just over 4,400 vehicles according to CNBC. In the first quarter, 2,553 vehicles rolled off the assembly line. The steady ramp-up lends credence to Rivian’s claim that will make 25,000 vehicles this year.

So far, dating back to the start of production which began in November, Rivian has built 7,969 vehicles. In this same period, they announced their plans for a second factory, a smaller R2 SUV, and launched their first recall among many other news stories.
