Construction Reflection


“Our team’s collective efforts have made this moment possible. Can’t wait to get these into the hands of our customers!” What isn’t clear is who will get this first customer vehicle. After months of building pre-production vehicles, this morning our first customer vehicle drove off our production line in Normal!  Our team's collective efforts have made this moment possible. Can't wait to get these into the hands of our customers! — RJ Scaringe (@RJScaringe) September 14, 2021 Rivian operated in relative obscurity, aka stealth mode, for years before it revealed prototypes of its all-electric R1T truck and R1S SUV at the LA Auto Show in late 2018. Since then, Rivian has raised billions of dollars ($10.5 billion since 2019); expanded its Normal, Illinois, factory; hired thousands of employees; landed Amazon as a commercial customer; and, most recently, filed confidentially for an IPO . Today, in addition to its Illinois factory, Rivian has facilities in Palo Alto and Irvine, California; and Plymouth, Michigan; and an office in the U.K. The debut of electric pickups signals a new EV era When it first revealed the two electric vehicles in 2018, Rivian had about 600 employees. Today, it has 8,000. Scaringe’s announcement Tuesday, which marks the official beginning of R1T production for customers, comes after at least two delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and global chip shortage. Earlier this summer, Scaringe wrote in a letter to customers that R1T deliveries would begin in September, with the R1S to follow “shortly.” Rivian has been juggling the dueling priorities of prepping and eventually producing the R1T and R1S for consumers and commercial delivery vans for Amazon. The Illinois factory has two separate production lines producing vehicles. One is dedicated to the R1 vehicles and the other line is for its commercial vans. Amazon ordered 100,000 of these vans, with deliveries starting in 2021. Earlier this year, Amazon began testing the electric delivery van in several cities, including Los Angeles and San Francisco. Amazon begins testing its Rivian electric delivery vans in San Francisco Earlier this month, Rivian announced that the first edition version of the R1T pickup truck has an official EPA range of 314 miles, while its R1T SUV comes in at 316 miles. The official range and fuel economy values posted on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency website align with Rivian’s previous estimates, which it advertised as 300 miles. The moment is also important because it means Rivian has the benefit of being the first electric truck on the market. Ford’s F-150 Lightning, which isn’t expected to come on the market until spring 2022, has a targeted range of 230 miles in the standard and up to 300 miles in the extended version.

Ford has started initial pre-production of its electric F-150 Lightning pickup truck at a new plant in Dearborn, Mich. DEARBORN, Mich. — Ford Motor is expanding hiring to increase production capacity for its all-electric F-150 Lightning pickup as it begins building prototypes of the electric vehicle. The Detroit automaker said Thursday that it plans to invest an additional $250 million and add 450 jobs across three Michigan facilities — including the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center, which is building the truck — to double annual production capacity for the vehicle to 80,000 units. That's up from 40,000 vehicles a year ago. Ford has now invested about $950 million in production of a hybrid version of the truck and the electric F-150, which is scheduled to go on sale next spring starting at about $40,000. Ford has started initial pre-production of its electric F-150 Lightning pickup truck at a new plant in Dearborn, Mich. More than 150,000 reservations have been made for the vehicle since its debut in May, up from 120,000 at the end of July, according to Ford. Production and reservations for the F-150 Lightning are being closely watched by investors and industry analysts as a barometer for consumer acceptance of electric vehicles, specifically pickups, which dominate sales in the U.S. Kumar Galhotra, Ford's president of the Americas and international markets, said the company expects to hit the 80,000 annual production rate during the second year of production, in 2023. He said Ford has gradually been "pulling levers" to increase production capacity of the F-150 Lightning throughout its supply chain. "The reservation number has been growing quite rapidly since we launched it," he told reporters Thursday at the Rouge plant, in Dearborn, Michigan. "That's why we're increasing capacity and building them as fast as we can." Several automakers are expected to offer electric pickups in the coming years. Amazon - and Ford-backed start-up Rivian on Tuesday became the first automaker to enter what's expected to be a hotly contested segment. Ford has started initial pre-production of its electric F-150 Lightning pickup truck at a new plant in Dearborn, Mich. General Motors is expected to get its EV pickup to market next, with the GMC Hummer EV rolling off assembly lines this fall. EV start-up Lordstown Motors and Ford are expected to follow next year, along with Tesla , which recently pushed back deliveries of its Cybertruck from this year to late 2022. Preproduction models, or prototypes, are used by companies for testing and validation ahead of assembling vehicles that are used for certification before actual production for consumers.
