Rivian Comes to Georgia

Electric Truck Manufacturer Rivian Expands to Georgia $5 Billion Investment 7500 Jobs Created


Electric vehicle maker Rivian in December 2021 announced it’s plans to build a $5 billion assembly plant and battery factory in Georgia, which Gov. Brian Kemp called “the largest single economic development project ever in this state’s history.” ​ At a press conference with Kemp at the State Capitol, a Rivian executive outlined plans to employ 7,500 workers at its factory, a jobs tally state officials have said could grow to 10,000. The plant will be built on a sprawling swath of farmland and pine forest about an hour’s drive east of Atlanta. ​ Rivian plans to begin production in 2024 at the Georgia plant, where it expects to be able to manufacture up to 400,000 vehicles a year. Construction is slated to begin summer of 2022. ​ Georgia beat out Texas and several other states for the vehicle factory, Georgia’s first since Kia announced plans to build a manufacturing center in West Point near the Alabama border. Rivian said the new factory will assemble its R1T truck and R1S SUV, in addition to delivery vans for Amazon, a major investor in Rivian.
