Ford and Rivian cancel plan to jointly develop an EV


Rivian’s electric van for Amazon raises battery power doubts – The Information

Amazon, which disclosed a 20% stake in Rivian at the end of October, in 2019 ordered 100,000 of its electric delivery vans as part of the e-commerce giant’s effort to cut its carbon footprint. Rivian had disclosed the vans would have a range of between 120 miles and 150 miles depending on their size. According to the report, Ross Rachey, Amazon’s director of Global Fleets and Products, said air conditioning and heating could drain the battery in the vehicles being tested, and these vans did not have the insulation the final vehicles manufactured by Rivian will have.
