You read that right, we take a back seat to Amazon.

"According to Bloomberg via Tesalarati, sources suggest Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe is steering the company's focus toward producing the delivery vans first. The report says the CEO hopes to produce 300 vans by the end of 2021. The first 10,000 vehicles are due to Amazon by the end of 2022, though it may take a decade for Rivian to supply Amazon with the full order of 100,000 electric vans.

Meanwhile, R1T and R1S production will take a back seat, and move very slowly for now. This comes as no surprise since Rivian has a contract to uphold with Amazon, and there are few orders for its electric trucks. As Rivian works to build up its reputation, continues to secure investors, and plans to enter the stock market via an IPO, being on good terms with Amazon is likely key."
