It appears Rivian has big plans for its upcoming Georgia plant.

As hinted at in a recently shared site plan and map of the project, Rivian’s Georgia site will be an expansive facility that will comprise several massive buildings spanning millions of square feet each, as well as interesting sections such as an “Adventure Trail” and a large 144-stall charging station for outbound vehicles. 

 

The plans were shared with Teslarati by the Rivian Owners forum. As could be seen in the plans, Rivian’s Georgia plant has a total proposed square footage of 19.6 million square feet within a 1,978-acre parcel of land. That’s an impressive piece of real estate and a significant step up from the company’s existing plant in Normal, IL, a former Mitsubishi factory acquired by Rivian. 

 

A look at the plans for the Georgia facility suggests Rivian is being ambitious with its next electric vehicle production site. The complex will not only have facilities dedicated to the production of electric vehicles, it will also include an onsite delivery center, a dedicated training facility and an event center.

 

Rivian’s plans also include an “Adventure Trail” close to the complex’s test track. Few details are available about the “Adventure Trail” itself, though the site plans suggest it would be set up in a wooded area.

 

Rivian has captured the market’s interest as a company that may have the potential to be the next big electric vehicle maker. So far, the company is dealing with...


...some growing pains as it tries to ramp the production of its first consumer products, the R1T pickup truck and the R1S SUV, as well as its electric Amazon delivery van. 

 

After a successful debut in the stock market in November, Rivian has a valuation of $73 billion as of writing. The electric truck maker also recently announced it successfully produced a total of 1,015 vehicles by the end of 2021. Among this number, 920 were delivered to customers before the end of the year.
