Vancouver, British Columba — Rivian has started building its service network in Canada as the electric vehicle maker prepares to deliver its first vehicles in the Canadian market this summer.
Automotive News Canada reported Friday that Rivian has begun recruiting staff for its Vancouver service centre, though it would not elaborate on how many services centres it planned for Canada.
The company said the service centres will form part of its delivery experience in addition to hosting customer events.
In the United States, Rivian touts a network of Rivian-owned and Rivian-certified independent collision centres that handle bodywork and exterior damage.
Rivian said earlier this year its R1T and R1S vehicles are scheduled to be delivered to Canadian customers this July. The electric pickup and SUV will be the first vehicles to arrive, with a pair of lower-cost versions of each to follow at a later date.
