In April, Ford invested $500 million into Rivian. As a part of that deal, Ford says it will build an electric vehicle using the Rivian platform. A lot of the discussion around this has assumed the vehicle in question will be a pickup. But maybe it isn't. Ford is, separately, working on an electric F-150. The Rivian R1T is slightly smaller than the F-150 so it would strike me as odd for them to offer an electric version of their traditional truck, and then a slightly smaller one. I suspect it's more likely that the Rivian platform will underpin an SUV. Maybe something like an electric take on the Flex, for instance. I am, of course, open to arguments for other vehicle types (just remember Ford already has a long-range Mustang-inspired electric crossover in the oven already).
