All-electric vehicle maker Rivian will begin deliveries of its long-awaited R1S SUVs and R1T pickups in the middle of 2022, with pricing and specifications to be officially announced for the US market. The 2022 Rivian R1S seven-seat SUV will be the second production vehicle from Rivian, a new Michigan-based electric vehicle manufacturer. The Rivian R1S points directly to the Tesla Model X, which is the only all-electric three-row SUV currently available.



The Rivian R1S SUV boasts 7,700 pounds of towing capacity - the first deliveries are said to arrive in mid-2022. The Rivians R1T pickup looks good on paper, with a range of over 400 miles and a payload of 11,000 pounds.

The Rivian R1T pickup delivers an EPA range of 314 miles (400 miles with optional larger battery), 70 mpg total fuel consumption, and a 13 hour charge time at 240V. Like the R1T pickup, it offers a 135.0 kWh battery pack. , as stated by Rivian. lasts approximately 300 miles on a single charge. Detroit-based Rivian produces a base model R1T with a 135 kWh battery that is expected to have a range of 300 miles, while an upgraded 180 kWh battery is expected to have a range of 400 miles and 60 mph in 3.0 seconds. . In addition to the all-wheel-drive system provided by motors at each wheel, the 2021 Rivian R1T is expected to have a range of 300 or 400 miles, depending on the battery chosen.



If that alone isn't enough, the R1T is all-electric and aims to be one of the first EV trucks to be offered to the public. It has been suggested that pickup buyers are too conservative to embrace electrification, but after our first ride of the 2022 Rivian R1T, both on and off the road, we think this is the electric truck that will turn them into believers. Despite the electric powertrain, the R1T is unlike any pickup truck we've ever driven: half truck, half sports sedan, and 100% awesome. Startup Rivian wowed us at the 2018 LA Auto Show by bringing the working prototype of the R1T electric pickup.

Rivian startup executives boast an ultra-low drag coefficient that's slipperier than many sports cars and delivers an impressive 314-mile range. The company began producing coupes in 2011, but due to market changes in the mid-2010s, it focused development on adventure vehicles. Rivian reported that the R1S has a lot in common with the R1T pickup. Rivian says it will begin shipping R1S models to customers in the fall of 2021.



Rivian, meanwhile, has started deliveries of its $70,000 R1T (about 1,000 by the end of the year) and plans to increase it next year. Startup Rivian confidently enters the market with the R1T pickup and R1S SUV. The Electret Vehicle of the Year is one that moves the needle, and its platform and SUV do it.



It looks like startup Rivian has really figured out how to use an electric powertrain to achieve high performance in a pickup truck package. Electric motors can instantly manage their own traction control more effectively than a separate engine and braking system. Testing the capabilities of an off-road adventure car, we handed over the Rivian R1T to the Stage 2 team. proved its obvious off-road advantages.

The 4xe's hybrid drivetrain uses one electric motor per wheel and has no gearbox or transfer case, delivering up to 835 horsepower and 908 lb-ft of torque to the Rivian R1T tires. The 2022 Rivian R1T rides smoothly and quietly, and its electric thrusters respond to slippage and power each wheel as needed. The R1S features an electric motor at each wheel for all-wheel drive and excellent off-road capability.



Drivers who are unfamiliar or uncomfortable with single-pedal driving - an EV feature where in most situations the driver only needs to step on the accelerator pedal as the electric motors slow the car down on takeoff - can leave it in low or medium mode and the Rivian R1T 2022 slows down comparable to the engine brake of a gasoline car. The Rivians electric truck takes full advantage of real-time torque vectoring, providing a variety of drive modes and sub-modes that show how programmable and adaptable the platform is.

The Rivian R1S boasts the same four motors (one for each independent wheel) as the Rivian R1T, but slightly less towing power (up to 7,700 pounds). Starting at $70,000 with a range of over 300 miles, the Rivian R1S can handle driving in water up to 3 feet deep, can crawl on 100% grade, has 14 inches of ground clearance, accelerates to 60 mph in 3 seconds, and handles like a sports car. a car. The shape and compact floor of the 2022 Rivian R1T mimic those of "lifestyle" trucks like the Honda Ridgeline and Hyundai Santa Cruz but will pull 11,000 pounds and, according to our data, rock crawl like a Jeep Gladiator.



The adoption of hybrids may have influenced the all-electric F-150, though Ford went to great lengths to call the R2 the fastest, most powerful, and most torquey of any F-150. The all-electric Corvette will be an all-electric vehicle, but it's very similar in price to a petrol pickup. Considering eligibility for a $7,500 federal tax credit, the Ford F 150 EV is by far one of the most affordable electric pickup trucks available in the US, compared to the Tesla Cybertruck, Rivian R1T, and GM Hummer EV pickup.
