Rivian to Potentially Build New Plant in Georgia

Rivian’s on a roll and could soon be rolling out more EVs built in Georgia

  • The possible location is east of Atlanta.

  • This will be Rivian’s second production plant.

  • The plant could produce up to 200,000 vehicles per year.

Rivian is in an enviable position. Despite having only recently begun deliveries of its highly-anticipated R1T electric pickup, they are seriously loaded. With massive demand and plenty of -pre-orders, Rivian is well-positioned to shop for a location for a new factory and it looks as though Georgia will be selected.

Although Rivian hasn’t confirmed or commented on the news, the report states that Governor Brian Kemp and Rivian officials will make an announcement with regards to the site location and plans later this week.

The plant’s location is said to be along I-20 linking Walton and Morgan counties or about an hour’s drive east of Atlanta according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The site will represent a multi-billion-dollar investment on behalf of Rivian. The plant could employ up to 8,000 people and churn out at least 200,000 units every year.

The new factory could produce the recent Motor Trend Truck of the Year title recipient R1T, the R1S SUV as well as other commercial vehicles including the delivery van.
