August 10, 2023: On Tuesday, Rivian Automotive to build almost 50,000 vehicles in 2023 after incurring loss, over twice the digit it made in 2022 and up from its previous production direction of 50,000 cars.

Rivian produced 12,640 cars during the dual quarter, up 59% from its first-quarter total and well beyond the 4,467 EVs it had in the second quarter of 2022. It delivered 13,992 vehicles in the quarter, up from 9,395 in the initial quarter of 2023 and 4,401 in the second quarter of 2022.

“Our second quarter results our continued focus on cost efficiency as we accelerate the drive towards profitability,” CEO RJ Scaringe said. “We have gained significant reductions in R1 and EDV vehicle unit cost across the necessary components, including material costs, overhead, and logistics. It was a strong quarter, and we remain focused on ramping production, moving cost efficiencies, developing future technologies, and improving the customer experience.”
