3:13 pm
from the front the truck looks like it drove off the screen of a pixar movie. motor trend named it 2022's truck of the year, raving it redefines the genre. when rivian went public late last year, its stock surge briefly made it one of the most valuable automakers in the world, worth more than general motors and ford, but the stock has plummeted. lately the road for rivian has been pretty rough. it has been plagued by chronic production delays due in part to a shortage of parts, including semiconductor chips. it's sprawling factory can annually produce 150,000 vehicles but this year the company expects to roll just 25,000 off the assembly line. the wait to get one is now more than a year long. >> so this blue car, what is interesting is this car has already been assigned to a customer. >> reporter: 39-year-old scaringe has been heralded as

scaringe says climate change is the reason he founded rivian in 2009 as he wrestled with his two competing loves, cars and the great outdoors. especially road trips with his family. >> so that sort of led to me being, frankly, really bummed out that these things i loved were simultaneously the root of so many issues, and the reason rivian exists is precisely for that challenge. go for a ride. >> reporter: he says american still will be able to drive the trucks and suvs they love. >> so if you have done things like this before. >> crawl up a wall of rocks in a vehicle? >> yeah. >> no. >> no? >> reporter: and take them just about anywhere they want. >> i think this is the very first time i have ever done this. >> see, there we go. a day of firsts. >> reporter: i'm ben tracy in bloomington, illinois. well, it can get windy around the bay area as we know but it is usually nothing like this. take a look. >> oh, my gosh. folks, we got a truck -- wow.
