Rivian's "one more thing" was a nod to Steve Jobs' habit of teasing a last product reveal at events. Scaringe stunned his audience with the reveal of the R3 midsize crossover, catching the audience by surprise. That comment — and perhaps the whole surprise reveal — was a thinly veiled reference to Apple cofounder Steve Jobs' habit of making last-minute product announcements, introducing "one more thing" after seemingly finishing his keynote speech. AdvertisementBut the R3 wasn't the only surprise that Scaringe had up his sleeve, who added that "there's one more thing." The Rivian R3X performance variant Elliot Ross Studio, INCWith his double-surprise reveal, Scaringe seems to have taken Jobs' penchant for theatricality to heart.

In today's big story, we're looking at pharma companies' surging stocks and threatening tech darlings thanks to their weight-loss drugs. And it comes despite only 1% of US adults taking weight-loss drugs, according to Bank of America , which predicts that number could rise to 15% by 2035. Weight-loss drugs are also cutting more than just fat. For Wall Street, meanwhile, the equation is much simpler: Getting more people on weight-loss drugs boosts the economy. The trend, which will be powered by cash-rich mega-cap tech companies, is thanks to strong earnings growth, the bank said.

A Cox Automotive analysis found that Rivian accounted for just over 4% of EV sales in 2023, while Lucid made up 0.5%. Electric truck maker Nikola reported worse-than-expected revenue and a slightly better-than-expected loss per share in its earnings Thursday.

CNN —Rivian announced Wednesday that it will lay off 10% of its salaried workers beginning Thursday morning, amid a quarterly loss and an increasingly competitive EV market. Rivian has a total of 16,700 employees but would not disclose how many of those are considered salaried employees. Rivian has previously, on two different occasions, laid off 6% of its workforce, as the company has looked to reduce its losses. Sales of electric vehicles has not expanded as rapidly in the past year as it had before, and automakers have blamed high interest rates for some of that slow-down. Scaringe boasted that Rivian produced the best-selling electric vehicle over $70,000 last year.

Rivian CEO says EV market suffers from a lack of choice

Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe on Friday discussed the electric vehicle market with CNBC's Jim Cramer, saying EV automakers need to give consumers a wider variety of models to choose from. "What I think we're witnessing today is a lack of choice," Scaringe said. Rivian is trying to broaden its offerings with a new line of R2 vehicles, which Scaringe will be smaller and less expensive than current Rivian models. Even Tesla , one of the few profitable EV companies, cut costs last year, reducing prices of new cars by 20%. But Scaringe said he's confident the world will eventually make a lasting shift to EVs, saying government policies will drive that change.
