Michigan-based Electric Vehicle Startup Selects Illinois

Michigan-based electric vehicle startup, Rivian Automotive, selected Illinois for the site of its new manufacturing facility.

The company purchased the former Mitsubishi Motors North America facility in Normal, IL in June 2016 with plans to invest $40.5 million into the factory over the next five years. Vehicle production is slated to begin in 2019.

The Town of Normal extended an incentive package to Rivian , including a five-year tax abatement and a $1 million grant, contingent upon the hiring of approximately 1,000 workers and a $175 million investment into the site through 2024.
