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 : )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.
