Rivian is targeting Europe for the opening of a new plant
US electric vehicle manufacturer Rivian has launched a phase of exploration in different European locations to build a new factory. The company, supported by the car manufacturer Ford and the great giant Amazon, could start from the latter, starting the production of the van Rivian for e-commerce deliveries.

Among the various European cities, it seems that the Rivian company has set its sights on several countries, also examining other sites outside the European Union. As mentioned, the company boasts the support of major companies such as Amazon, Ford and Cox Automotive. Not surprisingly, the well-known e-commerce company founded by Jeff Bezos is among the biggest supporters of Rivian, so much so that it has ordered 100,000 electric vans, some already present on American roads. In this regard, it is important to reiterate that Amazon's plan to make its fleet of delivery vehicles electric is one of the most important parts of the so-called Climate Pledge, as part of which the American company aims to achieve its emissions target. zero CO2 by 2040. The US Ford also ordered vehicles from Rivian, investing large sums in the company.

Some indiscretions reported by the American Bloomberg would therefore see the American car manufacturer engaged in the search for a site in the Old Continent where to build a new plant for the assembly of new vehicles. However, the same company would have relied on a company that deals with commercial real estate services, but there is currently little information about it. It seems more certain that EU countries, such as Germany and Hungary, and other non-EU countries, such as the United Kingdom, are among the chosen ones. According to reports, following the production of the electric van designed for Amazon, the assembly of production models such as the R1S SUV and the new R1T pick-up should then follow.
