Rivian Automotive (NASDAQ: RIVN) stock gained in after-hours trading after the firm announced it managed to produce 7,363 vehicles in Q3, a 67.3% sequential increase, while also delivering 6,584 vehicles for the quarter.
The electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer noted that the production and delivery numbers were in line with their expectations, which will enable them to deliver 25,000 vehicles for the full year.
