Dec. 16, 2021—Rivian Automotive is set to announce a $5 billion EV battery and assembly plant just outside of Atlanta. 

According to a report from The Detroit News, the automaker is expected to make a formal announcement later this week. The facility will employ around 7,500 workers and could eventually get up to 10,000. That would make it one of the largest automotive plants in the country, rivaling BMW's 11,000-worker plant in South Carolina and Ford's 8,600-worker plant in Kentucky.

The plant will also be the single-largest industrial investment in Georgia's history. Though actual numbers are not available, Rivian could qualify for up to $118 million dollars in state tax incentives.

Rivian initially said, per its initial plan, the plant would produce up to 200,000 vehicles per year and would pay employees up $56,000 per year. Rivian told Fort Worth its plant would make 200,000 vehicles per year, with workers paid at least $56,000 a year.
