Rivian might be heading into a winter of its own as we enter a cooling economy.
"CEO RJ Scaringe, who has been under pressure to increase production of Rivian's consumer vehicles and electric delivery vans, is likely to face questions on the earnings call over demand as interest rates rise and the economy cools.

The automaker said in early October that it produced 7,363 vehicles at its Illinois plant in the third quarter and delivered 6,584 vehicles. Rivian said it expects to meet its full-year production target of 25,000 units for the three vehicles it sells. The company does not break down production by model.

Rivian has struggled to meet demand amid supply chain challenges. The company's most recent public statement on its order backlog put pre-orders at 98,000 for the R1T and R1S as of June 30. Separately, Amazon has an initial order for 100,000 EDV vehicles.

Scaringe may also face questions over plans to build a second plant in Georgia for the company's smaller R2 platform, designed for more mainstream vehicles. Rivian has said it has enough cash to build the factory and produce the new models."
