Rivian is a U.S.-based startup company focused on building electric vehicles at its Illinois factory. Its first models will be the R1S three-row SUV and R1T pickup truck that are slated to debut at the end of 2020. Both are positioned as premium vehicles starting at around $70,000. The company states that electric range will be 230 miles on base models, with uplevel versions available with 300 miles and over 400 miles of range with a larger battery. Major financial backers include Amazon and Ford. Further, Amazon ordered 100,000 electric delivery vans from Rivian. And the flat, "skateboard" platform that underpins these models will also be used by Ford for future EVs.
