While Rivian’s products have been well-received, the company said supply chain shortages and other manufacturing issues have resulted in lower production than initially expected.

Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe said in May that production of the R1 model was ramping up to meet strong demand. Needham analyst Chris Pierce told Reuters, “All the automakers have supply chain issues in 2021 and 2022, but things seem to be turning around for Rivian. Looking at their second-quarter numbers, they have 50,000 vehicles this year. Production targets appear to be fully achievable.”

The last time Rivian reported its order backlog was in November 2022. At the time, the company said it had 114,000 orders for the R1T pickup and R1S crossover in the U.S. and Canada, plus a standing order for 100,000 EDVs from Amazon.
