Rivian produced 1,015 vehicles in 2021

Rivian R1T.

Rivian announced that it produced 1,015 and delivered 920 vehicles by the end of 2021. Rivian went public in November on NASDAQ and managed to raise $13 billion to accelerate its EV plans. 

The automaker set the goal of producing 1,200 vehicles by the end of the year but in December warned that this number could come short by a few hundred due to technical issues. 

Production increase

The latest announcement came with the news that COO Rod Copes had retired in December. The automaker said the departure was decided months previously. 

Rivian hasn't disclosed the production numbers by vehicle, but the R1T electric pick-up is likely on the top of the list. With the funding of the IPO, Rivian is expected to increase production mainly on R1T and R1S.
