    Amazon-Backed Rivian Automotive Plans Second U.S. Electric-Vehicle Factory




    Electric-vehicle startup Rivian Automotive plans to open a second manufacturing plant in the U.S., a move that comes as other car companies also are accelerating in the shift to battery-powered vehicles.


    A Rivian spokeswoman said Thursday the company is early in the process of scouting out locations. Rivian already has one plant in Normal, Ill., where it plans to start production on its debut models this year. ทดลองเล่นสล็อต


    Reuters earlier reported the plans for the second Rivian factory.
    Rivian's planned expansion further highlights how the auto industry is deepening its commitment to electric vehicles, a technology whose adoption is being driven by tougher auto-emissions regulations globally and the popularity of Tesla Inc.


    General Motors Co., Ford Motor Co. and other major auto makers are rushing to put out new plug-in models, and the Biden administration is prioritizing policies that help consumers make the switch from gas-powered cars.


    Rivian, founded more than a decade ago, plans to launch three new models in 2021, including commercial delivery vans for Amazon.com Inc. and a fully electric pickup truck.


    The startup has raised billions of dollars in the past two years, as investors have grown more enthusiastic about battery-electric technology. Amazon and Ford are among Rivian's backers.


    The company's first two models, the R1T electric pickup and R1S SUV, are expected to start shipping this year. Last week, Rivian notified buyers that the R1T truck would be delayed until September, largely due to complications related to the pandemic and the global computer-chip shortage.
