The Electric Rivian R1T: The First Electric Pick Up Truck In The World An Electric Adventure Vehicle

Rivian have presented a very convincing launch. A large SUV and pick up truck at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Most impressive.

Rivian took the Los Angeles Auto Show by storm for the reveal of its fully electric truck R1T and SUV R1S.

Both are based on the same skateboard-style electric chassis, which will be available with three different battery sizes for a maximum range of 400+ miles per charge in the largest configuration.

The Rivian R1S is the sport utility vehicle of the family — though, Rivian likes to call them both Electric Adventure Vehicles.

“We’re launching Rivian with two vehicles that reimagine the pickup and SUV segments,” Rivian Founder and CEO RJ Scaringe said. “I started Rivian to deliver products that the world didn’t already have – to redefine expectations through the application of technology and innovation. Starting with a clean sheet, we have spent years developing the technology to deliver the ideal vehicle for active customers. This means having great driving dynamics on any surface on- or off-road, providing cargo solutions to easily storing 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.”

The Rivian R1T  was built with the skateboard design that puts the battery at the bottom of the rolling chassis and allows it to adjust the body on top as needed. This affords Rivian the flexibility to change the battery size and resulting range to suit the needs of the customer. The new automaker is branding the R1T as the world’s first Electric Adventure Vehicle and it has built its skateboard to deliver on this promise.

To keep the weight of the vehicle as low as possible, Rivian integrated not just the battery pack but also the drive units, suspension, braking, and thermal management system below the height of the wheels to give the vehicle a nice stable base to romp around with. In an off-road vehicle, the center of gravity of a vehicle defines not only its riding characteristics but also the amount of traction it will have in increasingly tenuous off-road scenarios. Rivian has not offered test drives in its vehicles, but these design choices are sure to have a positive effect on the truck’s handling characteristics on and off the road.

The Rivian R1T packs a quad pack of motors managed by a central torque control system to deliver 147 kW (197 hp) to each wheel, but the car’s electric powertrain really shines when it comes to torque. The R1T is an absolute performance beast when it comes to torque, with a combined 14,000 Nm of torque.

“The beauty and elegance of our quad-motor setup isn’t just about brute power. This architecture provides instantaneous torque with extremely precise control at each wheel, which is completely game-changing from a dynamics perspective both on- and off-road,” said Executive Director of Engineering and Programs Mark Vinnels.

    Rivian R1T Electric Camper Truck Walk Around: Overland Expo

    Overland Expo West is happening right now in Flagstaff, Arizona, and EV automaker Rivian is there with its forthcoming R1T pickup truck. Being a show dedicated to off-road explorers and adventure campers, Rivian decided to dress up its model with some gear that overlanding aficionados might appreciate. In the process, Rivian gains the distinction of having the first electric vehicle ever on display at the 10-year-old event.

    De Elektrische Rivian R1T Gaat In Productie

    De pre-productie van de Rivian R1T is al beginnen. De definitieve exemplaren van deze sportieve pick-up moeten in 20121 van de band rollen in Normal, Illinois.

    Daar heeft Rivian een voormalige fabriek van Mitsubishi gekocht waar Rivian over een paar jaar maximaal 250.000 EV’s per jaar zou kunnen bouwen. Voorlopig houdt men het op een bescheidener aantal van 20.000 tot 40.000 eenheden in het eerste jaar.

    De Rivian R1T krijgt een motorvermogen van 700 pk. Dit wordt geleverd door vier elektromotoren, één voor elk wiel. Rivian zal de R1T waarschijnlijk met drie verschillende accupakketten (105 kWh, 135 kWh en 180 kWh) aan gaan bieden. De actieradius van de pick-up zal hiermee ongeveer 380, 490 en 650 kilometer moeten worden.
