Rivian will be pushing back the launch of the R2 platform to 2026 instead of 2025.


As of September 30, the company had about $13.8 billion in cash remaining, down from $15.5 billion as of June 30. Rivian said while inflation has been a factor in its supply chain, it's taking steps to reduce costs and slow spending on future product. It reiterated that it's "confident" its cash hoard will last through 2025.

As part of its moves to slow spending, the company now expects to launch its upcoming smaller product platform, called R2, in 2026 rather than in 2025 as it had previously said. The R2 will be built in a new factory in Georgia.
