Time Rivian R2, BMW’s affordable electric car, Bollinger battery: Today’s Car News

BMW claims it won’t forget about affordable electric cars. Bollinger chooses batteries from Michigan. And Rivian pushes some futuristic models a little further as it continues to enhance its three existing models. This and more, at Green Car Reports.

Rivian revealed with this week’s quarterly business update that it has delay the appearance of R2, its smaller and more affordable R2 model line, through 2026, compared to the 2025 it indicated earlier. It says that the R2 platform “will open up global market opportunities” for the electric vehicle maker.

According to its CEO, in recent comments cited by Reuters, BMW will not give up entry cars during the transition to electric vehicles. That’s a bit different from the strategy Mercedes-Benz is following – even though BMW has a Mini.

Upcoming Commercial Bollinger EVs will feature Michigan-built batteries from our Next Energy (ONE) and its Aries cell packaging line. That could be a positive outcome as the niche electric truck maker, recently acquired by Mullen Automotive, ramps up production by the end of 2023 and the battery company already has a reputation.
