Rivian and Mercedes to postpone mass-production plans

It was only about a quarter ago when we reported about the partnership of Mercedes-Benz and Rivian. Rivian is a van manufacturer that already produces vans for fleets as large as Amazon. The partnership was set to merge Rivian’s EV technology and Mercedes-Benz’s manufacturing capabilities.

Now, only a few months later, the plan for mass-production has been halted. Instead, efforts will be made to continue growing the business of Rivian. The two manufacturers will continue sharing and collaborating on their engineering knowledge.

Auto Trendy’s take:

A bump in the road does not mean the end. Rivian is still a rapidly growing company and needs to show its current clients and future clients that it is capable of supporting them. In the meantime, the innovations that Rivian and Mercedes make will still be helping each other.
