RIVIAN AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRIC CARS

 

Founded in 2009 by its CEO RJ Scaringe, an MIT graduate who holds a Ph.D. in automotive manufacturing. The start-up hailed from Florida but moved to Normal, Illinois in 2016 in anticipation of acquiring a scuttled Mitsubishi plant. Rivian Automotive strives to reimagine how vehicles are developed, manufactured and sold. The company currently employs around 100 employees and includes some industry veterans, such as:

  • Chief Engineer – Lawrence Achram, a Chrysler Executive who worked on the Chrysler 300 and Crossfire;
  • Electric Powertrain Developer – Gary Glovceri from Magna who developed the powertrain for the Ford Focus Electric;
  • Design – Larry Erickson, a chief designer at GM and Ford;
  • Winfield Coachman, a program manager from A123 Energy Storage and Chrysler.

Rivian received capital from a mystery investor. The 2.6 million square foot plant has a capacity of 240,000 units per annum.
