Rivian has their eyes set on building a new factory in Europe. They've looking a places in the Uk, Germany, and Hungary.


Rivian Automotive Inc., the electric-vehicle maker backed by Amazon.com Inc., is scouting locations in Europe to build a new factory, according to people familiar with the matter.

The site likely would first produce a delivery van for Amazon and soon after build Rivian’s models for consumers, the people said. While no site has been selected yet, several countries are under consideration, including the U.K., Germany and Hungary, said the people, who asked not to be named discussing private information. Other sites outside the European Union also are under consideration.

Rivian has hired the commercial real estate services firm JLL for the search. The carmaker hopes to start van production as soon as next year, some of the people said.

Representatives for Rivian, Amazon and JLL declined to comment.

What will be interesting to see in these markets are the follow-on products, as Scaringe stated:

"What will really drive volume in those markets is the follow-on products. To really scale in those markets as we bring on follow-on products, having a production footprint outside the U.S. is going to be important. We wouldn't be serious about building a car company if we weren't thinking about China and Europe as important markets long term."
