We've Got Bad News If You're Waiting For The Rivian R1T

Electric Vehicles / Comments

Test drives will now begin in August.

The EV segment of the automotive industry is growing fast and it is only going to get bigger. Major manufacturers are throwing all they've got at producing electric vehicles, and newcomers are looking to fight for a piece of the market.

One such newcomer is Rivian, which currently offers a range of exciting electric vehicles including the R1S SUV which started production earlier in the year, and its highly anticipated R1T truck, which is set to compete with the Tesla Cybertruck. According to Rivianownersforum.com, there's some bad news for those expecting to take delivery of their R1T trucks in the near future: Rivian has delayed R1T Launch Edition deliveries to July, while test drives for the rest of the public won't begin until August.

The company also went on to say that Launch Edition deliveries will be completed by Spring 2022. For those looking to drive one of these electric pickups, Rivian has noted that the program will launch in August, and will be available in New York, Seattle, Los Angeles, Detroit, Chicago, and San Francisco, with more cities joining the lineup later in the year. The drive program will offer at-home test drives, or will let customers test cars on specific tour dates. For at-home test drives Rivian will offer prospective clients an in-depth walkaround.

There's a good reason many will be upset with the delays. The Rivian R1T Truck is a force to be reckoned with (if the figures from Rivian are to be believed). Rivian claims a 0-60 mph time of only 3 seconds, a range of around 400 miles, a towing capacity of 11,000 pounds, and more than 700 horsepower. The R1T will be offered with three battery pack options, namely 105-, 135-, and 180-kWh units, and is expected to start at $69,000 when it eventually goes on sale.
