First two Rivian R1S delivered to CEO and CFO


Rivian has commenced deliveries of the R1S SUV, and as with the R1T deliveries, the initial units appear to be going to the employees and investors. The first two units were delivered to CEO RJ Scaringe and CFO Claire McDonough.

The company in its Twitter post said that it is still working on its way to full-scale production. According to reports, Rivian is sitting on pre-orders of about 71,000 (both R1T and R1S combined) and as of December 15, 2021, it has produced 650 units of R1T and delivered 384 units. The R1S production and deliveries are only the aforementioned two.


Meanwhile, Rivian is scouting the location for its second U.S. plant in the state of Georgia. The planned $5 billion site is expected to employ more than 7,500 workers and will be capable of producing up to 400,000 vehicles per year. Construction is expected to begin in summer 2022, with production commencement slated for 2024.
