RIYADH: Dearborn-based Ford and Rivian, an American electric car manufacturer, have decided to end a joint cooperation agreement on future electric vehicles.

The companies decided to focus on their own projects, scrapping plans to jointly develop a new model as had been envisioned under a partnership struck in early 2019, representatives from each company said, WSJ reported.

Ford remains an investor and ally on Rivian’s shared path to an electrified future, Rivian said.

The development of Rivian and Ford electric vehicles has advanced to a significant degree, giving each company more confidence to move ahead independently, a Ford spokesman said.
