Comparisons to Tesla are apt, but there are a few key differences.

It's no secret that Tesla (TSLA -0.94%) has taken the world by storm. Few took the company seriously a decade ago. But those who did are sitting on gains of over 17,000%. That means an industry that was once laughed at has now become a breeding ground for imitation. Foremost among them: Rivian (RIVN -0.66%), which recently went public via an initial public offering (IPO)

In this Nov. 24 video from the YouTube channel of Motley Fool contributors Brian Feroldi and Brian Stoffel, you'll find out how Rivian is planning on offering something that Tesla isn't meaningfully focused on now. You'll also hear about a key partnership that's a huge vote of confidence. And -- of course -- you'll know what the key threats are to an investment in Rivian stock. At the end, you'll see how the company scored on each contributor's investment frameworks.
