You have used the population of Normal point a couple times now. Definitely false logic. I feel petty confident they will have employees from Bloomington, Peoria, Champaign etc...There will almost certainly be a challenge getting to full staff, as it is every where right now, but they are not in any way limited to the population of a single town in Illinois.

RJ himself said they had shortages of components in July 2021
Yes he did, but that no way implies that they will be building 1 vehicle a day for the next year as you are trolling. Do you work at it to predict doom and gloom, or does it come naturally to you?

Android also keeps mentioning the Amazon order without all of the context of delivery timing for that order. 10k vans have to be delivered by the end of 2022. 100k by the end of 2030--see below. The van production gets a lot of attention, but Rivian's plans have them building a LOT more Rx vehicles than vans over the next year and over the long haul.


NOTE: There's actually a bit of a discrepancy here in that most reports about the deal say 2030, but Bezos has commented on having 100k electric vans on the road by the end of 2024 without specifically saying Rivian vans. Maybe they expect to purchase electric vans from others as well?

It's not a significant number (1800 according to article). But Amazon also ordered electric vans from Mercedes-Benz for UK and EU: https://cleantechnica.com/2020/08/2...ercedes-electric-delivery-vans-for-eu-and-uk/
