One topic I have not seen on this forum recently is the worldwide shortage of microchips and supply chain issues that has the "big guys" cutting production of their cars/trucks in half in many cases. I would imagine this will also be affecting Rivian in some way, and my assumption is both LE deliveries and pre-orders will be delayed by at least 4-6 months. Anyone else heard different?

Thanks! I believe I missed these. My feeling is that they will be delivered when they are delivered... getting more excited by the day.

I assume they outsource the circuit board modules. Hopefully their suppliers took the proper steps to have parts available. It's got to be difficult though, not knowing what the ramp up will be. I know our company had to order Microcontrollers for the next 18 months if we wanted to have any chance of getting them. At least that was the scare tactic Microchip used with us.

Per MSN and Bloomberg, in April the chip shortage reached a 17 week window between order and delivery and is growing....

We are seeing lead times out to 45 weeks on simple little microcontrollers like the one below.


It's getting crazy. We've been redesigning projects for customers to move them over to a part that is available in the near term. I hear Ford is doing the same thing.

My guess is it will be a 2 month delay on the next batch of vehicle, like mine which is Jan-22.

Seeing the same delays from Cisco, Palo Alto, and several aquarium controller/equipment pieces (I keep a salt water tank).
