MEVCO and Rivian partner to revolutionise light fleets across the mining industry.

MEVCO (Mining Electric Vehicle Company) has entered an exclusive global partnership with Rivian Automotive, Inc. (NASDAQ: RIVN) to provide EVs to the mining, mining services and mining equipment industries.  MEVCO specialises in providing sustainable and efficient electric vehicle fleets solutions to the mining industry.


This collaboration signals a new standard for responsible and forward-thinking mining practices, and is a catalyst for positive change in the mining landscape.


Says Matt Cahir, CEO of MEVCO: “The Rivian R1T is widely acclaimed for its on and off-road capabilities, and its robust design and adaptability make it the ideal candidate to meet the many challenges mining presents. The integration of Rivian's technology with MEVCO's proven track record in mining-specific electric vehicles is poised to yield a fleet that exceeds the requirements of the most demanding operators.


“The shift to electric solutions extends beyond environmental and financial advantages. It is about fostering a safer, healthier environment for mine operators, particularly in subterranean settings where the elimination of tailpipe emissions is paramount. The Rivian R1T, in terms of safety and off-road capabilities, stands unparalleled.


“We have already seen strong support for the Rivian product, as well as the infrastructure MEVCO is building to support the rollout.”


The Rivian R1T is the only pick up truck – electric or otherwise – in the United States to earn the Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).


Dagan Mishoulam, Rivian’s VP of Strategy, said:
“Our fleet offering is better known for our commercial vans, so its great to see our R1 vehicles being incorporated into MEVCO’s fleet. We’re delighted they are electrifying  their fleet with us, and we’re excited to help them reduce tailpipe emissions.”


MEVCO will not only customise the Rivan R1T to mining specifications, allowing them to operate in the harshest of conditions in both surface and underground mines, but also will support mines on charging infrastructure, maintenance and workflows.
