Ramping up at Rivian
Gene Brady went for a tour of the HQ of Rivian Automotive, an American electric vehicles manufacturer that has gotten a lot of great press (and big contracts) on their sharp new ‘Electric Adventure Vehicles’ and pickup trucks.
They’ve created an electric ‘skateboard’ chassis that can be modified to use on multiple platforms, ~90% shared components.
Investments from Amazon, Ford and Cox Automotive has helped Rivian move forward very quickly.
Great energy at the company.
