Electric Car Start Up Shows Off In Bloomington

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (RFD) — Name recognition of automaker Rivian might be a little low for now but the start-up has been making big news over the past few months. Amazon recently announced they plan to buy 100,000 Rivian electric delivery trucks. Those trucks are going to be built in Bloomington Normal at the site of the old Mitsubishi plant. The company held an open house on Sunday showcasing the technology and vehicles that are about a year away, Democrat Governor JB Pritzker says seeing is believing.

Pritzker says that he wants to be able there when the first Rivian vehicle rolls off the assembly line.
