News Rivian Is now Certified by Transport Canada

Rivian Is now Certified by Transport Canada

Rivian can now sell its vehicles in Canada after all.

  • The automaker had failed to obtain its certification earlier this week.

  • Transport Canada has now cleared the company after receiving the requested documentation

  • Rivian hasn’t said when deliveries will begin in Canada, but it should happen soon

Earlier this week, Rivian applied for certification with Transport Canada in order to be able to sell its vehicles in Canada but the government agency rejected the application.

Yesterday, the automaker tried again to get its two vehicles certified for sale in the country and actually succeeded.

According to Rivian, Transport Canada requested additional documentation and information before it could give the company the green light, which was done in a matter of days.

This means that both the R1T and the R1S electric pickup and SUVs can now legally be sold and delivered in Canada, which is great news for the numerous Canadian reservation holders.

Despite clearance having been received, Rivian has not announced an official date for the first delivery in Canada, which had originally been planned for November of 2021 and more recently, July of this year.

Nevertheless, Rivian will likely be able to enter the Canadian market in the coming weeks or months since it has already begun hiring in the country.

Indeed, the automaker made its first job postings back in June to recruit employees for its first Canadian service center in Vancouver.

This means that deliveries of the R1T and R1S are likely to begin in the Vancouver area before moving East once additional service centers are added to the company’s network, which now includes 21 facilities in the United States.
