Electric vehicle startup Rivian unveiled its highly anticipated all-electric pickup and SUV at events in the lead up to the 2018 LA Auto Show. Collectively called Electric Adventure Vehicles, the R1T is a five-passenger pickup truck and the R1S a seven-passenger SUV. In top spec, the company promises more than a 400 mi (640 km) electric range and a wading depth of 1 m (3.3 ft) for the quad-motor AWD vehicles.
“Starting with a clean sheet, we have spent years developing the technology to deliver the ideal vehicle for active customers,” said Rivian Founder and CEO RJ Scaringe. “This means having great driving dynamics on any surface on- or off-road, providing cargo solutions to easily store any type of gear, whether it's a surf board or a fishing rod and, very importantly, being capable of driving long distances on a single charge.”
