The Rivian R1T will be one of the first electric pickups to hit the market
Rivian is close to hitting his 2021 goal of delivering his first electric pickup to the United States – and as he gears up for the occasion, he’s posted footage of him testing the R1T that we saw for the first time in the Apple TV +. Documentary “The Long Way Up”. The R1T is easily one of the hottest electric pickups apart from the Tesla Cybertruck and the electric Ford F-150. While the Cybertruck will likely not reach mass production until 2022, alongside the Ford, the Rivian is the one gearing up to make a splash in 2021.
Interestingly, Rivian counts Ford alongside Amazon and its major investors, the Detroit-based automaker has invested $ 500 million in the startup and is also developing a Lincoln electric car based on its technology. In the video we can see, Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe personally tests the vehicles – and some interesting footage of the same is now available on Twitter. In the videos, it’s easy to see what Rivian achieved with the RIT by increasing and decreasing some very steep inclines.

The Rivian R1T will launch at $ 67,500 for the “explorer” version arriving in 2022, but the “launch” edition will arrive this year for $ 75,000. All of these vehicles will use the mid-level battery that the company claims 480 kilometers, 643 kilometers, 373 kilometers – in cars that have a 135 kWh, 180 kWh, and 105 kWh battery.
