For now, there’s no official hold off for the Rivian R1S SUV, which was now scheduled to debut sometime after its truck sibling. Sadly, we would not be amazed to see its launch delayed as properly. Simply call it a domino outcome. Meanwhile, Rivian’s Regular, Illinois manufacturing facility, previously a Mitsubishi plant, will stay idle for an indefinite period of time of time.

None of this is by any means the close of the planet, but it is really a disappointing setback for the start-up automaker that has the probable to disrupt the auto industry’s longtime disruptor, Tesla.
