Rivian Sr. Director of Vehicle Systems Ben Anstey appeared on a live episode of the Fully Charged podcast to talk about the Rivian's impact in the US and UK markets.

https://www.fullychargedshow.co.uk/podcast

It's a very interesting interview that covers a variety of topics including:
- Amazon's interest in Rivian as an investor
- How much Rivians can tow
- Finalizing Rivian's manufacturing/supply chain
- How Rivian will make sure to have enough batteries for production
- Q&A with the audience

He also talks about his time working with McLaren from 2011-2018 where he held different roles including Head of Vehicle Electronics.

Some Saudi firms were interested in Tesla a while back. Won't be surprised if Rivian joins that list.
Yeah that was around the time Musk made those Tweets about taking a buyout and it led to that whole legal debacle.

I can see Rivian getting a big foreign investment on top of what they've already secured from Ford and Amazon, especially when they start to expand. I don't necessarily think it will be Saudis though.
