Samsung SDI Released ‘Electric Truck’ for the first time in the U.S. Rivian, holding hands with Samsung SDI
Rivian of the U.S. officially launched an electric truck. It is ahead of competitors such as Tesla Ford General Motors (GM). It is also pushing for IPO with momentum.
According to CNBC and others in the U.S. on the 14th (local time), Rivian released an electric pickup truck “R1T” from a factory in Illinois that day.
R.J. Scherinsey, CEO of Rivian, tweeted, “The first customer vehicle left the production line this morning. “Our efforts made this moment possible,” he said.
Rivian was founded in 2009. Amazon Ford and others have invested $10.5 billion. It is said to have a production capacity of 400,000 units per year. Following R1T, ‘R1S’, an electric sports utility vehicle (SUV), is also scheduled to be released.
The R1T has a mileage of more than 500 kilometers (km). The selling price starts at $67,500. The vehicle is equipped with Samsung SDI’s 2170 (21mm in diameter and 70mm in length) cylindrical battery. Samsung SDI products will also be used in R1S.
The industry is paying attention to the fact that Rivian has launched the world’s first electric truck. Tesla’s Cybert Truck, the No. 1 electric vehicle maker, has been delayed from the end of this year to next year. It is expected to be equipped with 4680 cylindrical batteries such as LG Energy Solution and Panasonic Japan.
Ford is planning to release “F-150 Lightning” in the first half of next year. SK Innovation’s nickel-cobalt-manganese (NCM) 9-half battery with 90% nickel content will be used. GM plans to release ‘Hummer EV’ in the second half of the year. Nickel, cobalt, manganese, and aluminum (NCMA) batteries, which are added aluminum, will be installed to enhance the stability of LG Energy Solutions.파워볼게임
As Rivian takes the lead, attention is being paid to whether it will be successful. There are also reservations, such as winning 100,000 Amazon delivery trucks. Some predict that Rivian and Samsung SDI will set up a joint venture (JV) and establish a U.S. factory. R1T and R1S report cards may affect business plans.
Meanwhile, Libian recently submitted an application for listing to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Details such as the size of stock issuance are undisclosed. It is estimated to be up to $80 billion in corporate value.
