The American startup Rivian is preparing to launch two electric models on the market – the R1T pickup truck and the R1S SUV at a price of 69 thousand dollars. According to new information, the announced amount is the cost of “well-equipped machines”, and the starting price tag will be lower. It is expected that the main competitors of these models will be Tesla electric cars, in particular, the recently introduced Cybertruck for 39.9 thousand dollars.
Representatives of the company said that for 69 thousand dollars you can order a pickup truck or SUV in the middle configuration, with a panoramic roof and a battery capacity of 135 kilowatt hours, which provides a range of 480 kilometers. The basic version, in turn, is equipped with a 105 kilowatt-hour battery and travels 370 kilometers on a single charge. It can be assumed that such a version will cost customers several thousand dollars cheaper.
Earlier it was reported that the R1T pickup will receive the Tank Turn system (“tank U-turn”), which will allow the electric car to unfold on gravel or dirt roads in place. Another useful feature that is promised to all models of the brand is the ability to recharge batteries from each other.
The R1T was introduced in Los Angeles in 2018. Then there was information about the power plant: it consists of four electric motors with a total capacity of 760 horsepower. This provides a pickup acceleration from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in three seconds. A similar installation is necessary for the SUV R1S.
In the arsenal of Rivian, in addition to the mentioned models, there is also a “crazy” hatchback with a huge clearance.
