Rivian CEO on growth, Amazon vans, SPAC bubble and lower-priced EVs


NORMAL, Ill. – Rivian Automotive CEO Robert Scaringe hops out of one of the automaker’s R1T electric pickups outside of the company’s plant in central Illinois as a man chants, “R.J., R.J.!”

Scaringe, who goes by those initials, turns to the male employee who thanks him for the job at Rivian’s massive plant. The company’s 39-year-old founder reciprocates the appreciation and offers a handshake before heading into a meeting with suppliers.

The acknowledgement was one of many from employees that included fist-bumps, waves and other cordialities during a recent half-day visit to the plant with media and Scaringe, whose daily office is inside the former Mitsubishi Motors facility.
