Rivian just launched its upscale electric pickup truck, called the R1T.
It is claimed to be quick and capable for off road excursions.
Starting at $79,500 before any available tax credits, the R1T is a five-passenger crew-cab model that's priced like high-end trucks from Ford, GM, and Ram.
The R1T has an EPA-rated range of 314-miles.
But multiple battery sizes are planned; Rivian says they’ll provide from 250 to more than 400 miles of range.
The interior is uncluttered and high-tech, and uses synthetic materials.
The truck benefits from a frunk, or front trunk, and a transverse tunnel between the bed and cab for added storage.
Active safety and driver assistance systems are standard.
Rivian has recently raised prices, and announced that a less-expensive dual-motor option and the smaller battery will be available in 2024.
