Portions of electric vehicle fire up Rivian kept on climbing Thursday, up over 18%, one day after its public market debut.

The Amazon-and Ford-upheld organization previously outperformed both Ford and General Motors by market cap, arriving at a valuation of more than $101 billion. That is as yet a long ways behind Tesla’s market cap of more than $1 trillion.

GM’s market cap was $88.8 billion midmorning Thursday while Ford’s was $78.9 billion.

The valuation implies Amazon’s 20% stake in the business is currently worth about $20 billion and puts Ford’s 12% stake at about $12 billion.

The cost is particularly stunning given Rivian doesn’t yet have a set up plan of action and just hopes to acquire up to $1 million in income for the second from last quarter. It said in its plan that it hopes to lose up to $1.28 billion during that quarter.

Rivian beat adversaries to the market with a completely electric pickup yet presently can’t seem to deliver high volumes of its vehicles.

Amazon intends to utilize Rivian vehicles in its conveyance armada, having requested 100,000 to be given over by 2030. It hopes to have 10,000 Rivian vehicles conveying Amazon bundles as ahead of schedule as the following year.
