America’s newest EV brand will be based in Normal, Illinois. That is where workers are putting the finishing touches on a 2.5 Million square-foot factory. With backing from Ford, the R1T pickup and the R1S SUV will forge a bold trail into the future of battery-powered vehicles. So we’re glad to see the Rivian factory is nearing completion.
Their latest YouTube upload shows construction workers collaborating on 44 tasks simultaneously. Almost all tasks will be performed on-site. This includes several reinforced chambers for hot & cold endurance testing, a paint shop, and corporate offices. Their goal is to offer affordable vehicles with 400 miles of range, so stay with us for all your Rivian updates.
