Electrified SUVs are springing up all over the place. So it’s nothing unexpected that car startup Rivian has revealed one of its own, the R1S. Additional energizing is the organization’s electron-fueled pickup truck, the R1T.
The automaker calls the two vehicles “Electric Adventure Vehicles.” The thought is that both of these vehicles can deal with the rigors of the normal day while additionally prepared to go 4×4 romping and handle the components when required.
On the off chance that the specs work out the manner in which the organization trusts they will, there’s a decent shot these electrified SUVs could convey on the organization’s guarantee.
As per Rivian the R1S will have up to the 400-mile range, will complete zero to 60 of every three seconds, bolster over-the-air updates, seat five and have a four-engine AWD drivetrain. When it at first ships in late 2020, the truck will be accessible with either a 180 kWh or 136 kWh battery pack. Afterward, a 105 kWh battery will be accessible.
Rivian says that the R1S SUV will be conveyed in 2021 and that the two vehicles will transport with level 3 autonomy (The vehicle will drive itself in specific conditions, likely on the expressway).
The majority of this is great, however, it takes more than promises for another organization to convey a vehicle. Particularly at scale. Simply ask Tesla.
In the event that Rivian can pull this off, whenever you bother a friend to enable you to move, your Ikea furniture, garments and boxes of old cell phones may be pulled by an electric truck.
