While EV startups are difficult, few, and far between, Rivian appears to be the real deal.

Rivian Automotive was working "incognito" for many years. When the press and public first took notice of the upcoming automaker, its potential seemed incredibly positive. However, most of us are well aware that it's going to be a long and difficult journey. So, there was plenty of expected criticism and skepticism.

Fast-forward to just a few months later and Rivian started making huge waves and garnered much positive press with its R1T electric pickup truck and R1S three-row SUV. Not to mention the acquisition of a massive, working factory, in addition to investments from Amazon and Ford.

Is all of the above enough?

Business Insider seems to believe so, and we're confident that Rivian has much more up its sleeve.

It's important to note that some Business Insider (BI) journalists have proven historically anti-Tesla. However, others have been very neutral or even complimentary. With that being said, we're not here to dwell on the publication's Rivian versus Tesla headline. Nonetheless, it's interesting to get BI's take on this upcoming entrant.
