Electric vehicle startup Rivian, backed by Amazon.com Inc and Ford Motor Co, said on Monday that South Korean manufacturer Samsung SDI Co Limited would supply battery cells for its vehicles.

Rivian, which aims to put an electric pickup and SUV in production this year, said it had been working with Samsung throughout the process of developing the battery cells.

"We're excited about the performance and reliability of Samsung SDI battery cells combined with our energy-dense module and pack design," said RJ Scaringe, chief executive officer of Rivian.
