Rivian's Amazon Delivery Trucks Delayed Over Dispute With Seat Maker
According to The Wall Street Journal, Rivian filed a lawsuit stating that Commercial Vehicle Group violated the contract the two companies had by making the components much more expensive than it said they would be right after the contract was signed.
The supplier denied that was the case and said prices increased because Rivian changed the seat design. If that is correct, the higher price could have a feasible explanation. Commercial Vehicle Group also added that there was no clause that forced it to deliver the seats at lower prices.
