The electric car Rivian R1T demonstrated a difficult maneuver. Pickup made a U-turn on the spot. As a rule, tracked vehicles are capable of this, but not wheeled.
A similar maneuver is sometimes called a tank U-turn. Indeed, it is much easier for a tank to complete it – enough for the right and left tracks to move in different directions.
The Rivian did not reveal the secret of maneuver, but judging by the video, the right and left wheels of the pickup rotate in different directions. The fact is that the car has four electric motors – one per wheel. Obviously, each of them can be controlled separately.
Recall, the power plant Rivian R1T develops 760 liters. from. and 1120 N ∙ m. The electric pickup accelerates to hundreds in 3 s, and its range is over 640 km. Most likely, Rivian will become the main competitor of Tesla Cybertruck.
