The company says that these figures remain in line with their expectations, and that it “believes it is on track to deliver on the 50,000 annual production guidance previously provided.”
“These figures suggest Rivian might just have what it takes to stick it out,” said head of financial analysis at AJ Bell Danni Hewson.
The news has had a positive impact on the company’s stock, which surged over 13% following the announcement.
The rise in Rivian’s stock price on July 3 marked the first time it had entered positive territory since the end of February.
The stock has shown an overall growth of approximately 5% in 2023, closing at $19.56 per share on Monday, its highest closing price since February.

In a recent interview at the Deutsche Bank Global Auto Industry Conference, Claire McDonough, CFO of Rivian, stated that the company is starting to “see some relief in supply chain issues that have plagued the industry in recent years.”
McDonough remarked: “As we sit here today, we’ve seen a material improvement in the broader supply base and supply chain as we look at the broader backdrop.”
She further mentioned that “as supply chains have gotten better, freight costs have also improved. And so we saw some of those benefits as well.”
Tesla’s achievement was attributed to price reductions and U.S. federal tax credits, which made its EVs more accessible.
The company delivered 466,140 vehicles between April and June, representing a 10% increase from the previous quarter and an 83% increase compared to the same period last year.
