We Are Rivian
Rivian is building a new kind of car company. Starting from a
clean sheet has allowed us to learn from and leverage what’s been
done in the past while giving us the freedom to reimagine mobility
from the ground up. Our vehicles and technology are designed and
engineered to challenge what’s possible and to inspire people to
explore the world in new ways.
We believe in the power of adventure. While a vehicle can’t make
someone adventurous, it can nurture that fundamental desire in each
of us to go places we’ve never been and do things we’ve never done
— thoughtfully and sustainably. Science and invention depend on our
innate curiosity and desire to explore the unknown.
Our development centers are located in Plymouth, MI, San Jose,
CA, Irvine, CA and Surrey, England. In addition to these four
locations, we have a modern manufacturing facility in Normal, IL
and will begin production of our R1T and R1S in 2020.
