UPLIFTING MOBILITY

At Rivian, we’re reimagining what mobility can be. Beyond developing a vehicle portfolio, we’re rethinking the entire ecosystem. From excitement to sustainability, utility to comfort, we’re working to deliver joyful mobility experiences without the pain points of today.

The future is in sight. We never stand still in our pursuit of progress – every day, we strive to move FOREVER FORWARD.

CHALLENGING THE CURRENT STATE
ZOOM OUT
95%
AMOUNT OF TIME MOST VEHICLES SIT UNUSED
Most people are spending nearly 20% of their income on an asset that sits unused more than 95% of the time. We are working hard to change this by designing our products and services to achieve increased utilization through various forms of sharing.
INNOVATE
60%
AVERAGE DEPRECIATION OF A NEW CAR OVER FIVE YEARS
It’s no secret that vehicles depreciate rapidly while being used infrequently. But why have we accepted this as the status quo? The vehicle, customer model and associated economics need to be rethought to support access to sustainable and desirable mobility offerings.
LOVE THE WORLD
20%
PERCENTAGE OF GLOBAL CO2 EMISSIONS FROM PASSENGER VEHICLES
Reducing the climate impact from our vehicle system is core to our mission and critical to the long-term health of our planet. Achieving this not only requires dramatic reductions in per-vehicle emissions but also requires innovation in the business and customer models to enable faster adoption of highly efficient transportation.
OUR APPROACH
DESIGN
We believe that design should be meaningful – beautiful, engaging and timeless. To accomplish this, our working process integrates design with engineering to ensure that form and function work seamlessly. Our cross-disciplinary design team uses various prototyping processes to rapidly iterate solutions that address customer needs, functional requirements and the supporting ecosystem.
PLATFORM
Rivian is developing a flexible electric platform that will underpin our launch portfolio. Our vehicles are being optimized around the electric architecture to deliver outstanding performance, efficiency, packaging, durability and safety.
ENGINEERING
We believe engineering is an exercise in problem-solving. It requires an understanding of the fundamental problem before anything can be solved. Our approach is to break problems down to their most basic elements and then develop robust solutions to optimize the entire system.
OUR APPROACH
CULTURE
“To create a vehicle portfolio and ecosystem to accelerate the shift to sustainable mobility, we have to bring together very different and unique sets of personalities, skill sets and backgrounds. Our team includes fine artists, comedians, cultural anthropologists and world-class athletes — and we’ve developed an organizational culture that allows these individuals to thrive.”
–RJ Scaringe, Founder & CEO
PERSISTENCE
Rivian was founded in 2009 during the recession that left existing automakers reeling and investors running. But the challenges we faced during those early years became the backbone of our company, helping to create our can-do culture.
COLLABORATION
Our success requires that we work as a highly functioning team. How we brainstorm – as well as how we debate and disagree – are crucial to the success of the product. Fundamental to building a collaborative environment is establishing a foundation of trust among team members.
A CONVERGENCE
OF TALENT AND INNOVATION
We’re building a team of world-class innovators, thinkers and doers – bringing together a diverse group of global talent to our operations in California, Illinois and Michigan.
