The automotive technology company reported gloomy Q3 earnings

For Q3, Rivian reported an operational loss of $776 million and a net loss of $1.23 billion. Both figures were in line with what had been previously predicted. The results followed a blockbuster IPO in November, as Rivian was the first automaker to go public with an all-electric pickup truck. The company revealed that consumers were interested in its electric truck model, reporting 71,000 preorders as of December 15.

For the future, Rivian announced a new battery and assembly plant to facilitate the production of up to 400,000 vehicles per year. The construction is expected to begin in summer 2022, and production is set for 2024. Rivian added that expects to fall “a few hundred vehicles short” compared to the 1,200 vehicles target set in 2021.

The market didn’t take Rivian’s recent figures too well, the share price fell to a low of $96.25 apiece.
