The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that Rivian is in "late stage" talks to open a plant east of Atlanta near Interstate 20.
Currently, all of Rivian's manufacturing happens at its facility in Normal, Illinois. This would be the company's second plant. Rivian has said to Automotive News that it's in talks with authorities in multiple locations, but AJC seems to have sources suggesting the deal is nearly done for Georgia.

Good! No more ginomous factory in Austin please. The city is already too congested and lack of affordable housing. Atlanta has cheaper housing and labor forces. Go Rivian : )

"In the consumer market, we launched the R1 platform with our first generation of consumer vehicle, the R1T, a two-row five-passenger pickup truck, and began making customer deliveries in September 2021. As of September 30, 2021, we produced 12 R1Ts and delivered 11 R1Ts, and as of October 31, 2021, we produced 180 R1Ts and delivered 156 R1Ts. Nearly all of these vehicles were delivered to Rivian employees, and we expect to ramp deliveries to third-party customers as we increase our production rate. We plan to launch and commence customer deliveries for the R1S, a three-row seven-passenger SUV, in December 2021 following the completion of ongoing vehicle validation and all required testing. By the end of 2021, we intend to produce approximately 1,200 R1Ts and 25 R1Ss and deliver approximately 1,000 R1Ts and 15 R1Ss. Engineered for all of life’s adventures, our Electric Adventure Vehicles combine performance, utility, and efficiency. They are equally capable of rock crawling or carving turns on a mountain road and can leave most sports cars in the rearview mirror. The R1T and R1S are equipped with a proprietary set of advanced technology systems, including vehicle electronics, battery, electric drive, chassis, Driver+, and digital user experience management. These technologies can continuously improve and expand functionality through cloud-enabled OTA updates."

Ahh, ok, thanks for the additional clarifying information. but sounds like most shipments are to employees (with NDA's I'm sure) with (I'm betting) the rest for in-house & press evaluations..
