The 400 Miles Rivian Electric Vehicles Production Will be Delayed Till 2023

Scaringe says they will be currently producing the higher trim “Adventurer Package” with standard batteries first. Afterwards the lower “Explorer package” vehicles with bigger batteries would be produced.

That means customers who have orders for its R1T pickup trucks with “Max pack” batteries will have to wait till 2023 to receive their vehicles. Accrosding to the email, among the 71,000 preorders of its electric trucks the 400 miles “Max pack” option has about 20 percent of the orders.

Hence the need to protise the production of the other truck trims. The company has pans to build more factories to accommodate for this demand. Firstly, it has an obligation to deliver vans to E-commerce company Amazon.
