Good video. Get to see the Rivian factory in pre-production stage assembling an R1T while Scaringe answers questions.

Rivian is going to be shipping three different vehicles next year, the truck, suv and an Amazon delivery vehicle. He called the truck and suv halo vehicles meaning they are premium priced, but he said the delivery vehicle is price comparable to an equivalent ICE vehicle out of the gate, which I find hard to believe, but if true, wow. And then it is cheaper than ICE taking into account lifecycle costs like fuel and maintenance.

Rivian has 2,700 employees right now. They will share the battery system, drivetrain, a lot of the electrical system and computer systems across all three vehicles.
