Ford CEO Jim Hackett has spilled some beans about the vehicle it will be building with startup Rivian. We've learned that the vehicle built on the Rivian platform will "probably" be an SUV. This makes a lot of sense. Ford already has its own electric pickup project underway and it makes little sense to have two vehicles occupying the same space. It also has an electric crossover SUV project happening -- that's the so-called "Mustang-inspired" vehicle. So, an "SUV-like" SUV (you know, something larger that you can take off-road a bit) sounds like a niche waiting to be filled. The other (very) interesting thing we learned is that the electric Ford will be built at the Rivian plant in Normal, Illinois. This lowers the capital investment for the vehicle for Ford and gives us more confidence in RIvian's ability to get their plant into auto-manufacturing shape.
