Ford sells shares in EV maker Rivian for $188.2 mln

Ford Motor Co sold 7 million shares of electric carmaker Rivian Automotive Inc for about $ 188.2 million, or $ 26.88 apiece, the US automaker said in a filing on Friday, Trend reports with reference to Reuters.

Ford now holds 86.9 million shares in the California-headquartered company.

Rivian is struggling in a competitive market, including competition from Ford’s F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck, while a supply chain crisis is limiting production at its plants.

The electric-car maker earlier slashed its planned 2022 production in half to 25,000 vehicles.

On Tuesday, Ford had sold about 8 million shares of Rivian worth $ 214 million.

Rivian shares closed at $ 26.70 on Friday.
