The all-new 2020 Rivian R1T is an electric pickup truck that will bring revolution in the segment. To this moment, Rivian’s products are just a story we listened about. But next year that will change as the American automaker will release its first product. R1T already made a debut at the L.A. Auto Show and we had an opportunity to see something brand new.
The 2020 Rivian R1T will arrive with four electric motors, one motor for each wheel. According to Rivian, the electric truck will bring astonishing performances. This model will tow around 11,000 pounds and it will offer great acceleration. Moreover, the driving range will be superb, along with the off-road capabilities. R1T comes with the adjustable suspension and the exterior will look unordinary. From the inside, we can expect premium amenities and features.
2020 Rivian R1T Design And Platform
The forthcoming 2020 Rivian R1T will arrive with an appearance as we’ve never seen before. For the start, exterior design is very modern and attractive. Some cues are odd but this pickup won’t lack uniqueness for sure. The front end hosts vertical headlight units but some of you will probably have a negative opinion about it. Whatsoever, a single LED strip is running across the whole front part and the strips glow in green color while charging.
To the sides, R1T offers a more regular approach in terms of design. Most of the styling cues are traditional for the truck segment. The bed is also normal in comparison with other models. Skid plates are standard and you can expect great off-road capabilities from this model. The credit goes to the Rivian’s evolutionary “skateboard” platform and the height-adjustable suspension. Thanks to that, R1T will offer up to 14.2 inches of ground clearance.
High Quality and Rich Interior
From the inside, Rivian’s newest pickup truck will offer room for five persons. This electric pickup made a debut at the L.A. Auto Show and we had an opportunity to find out more interior details. The first impressions are more than positive. The all-new 2020 Rivian R1T will offer nothing but luxury.
The American carmaker already announced the plan to compete in the luxury segment only. The upholstery is premium and the cabin hosts numerous screens and displays. Interior is both functional and practical and we can expect plenty of unique features. One such a feature is for sure a so-called “gear tunnel” that sits under the bed. This storage area is lockable and it looks very innovative.
2020 Rivian R1T Powertrain
This is the most interesting part of the upcoming pickup truck. The 2020 Rivian R1T comes with great performances. The all-electric model offers three different battery packs. The customers can choose between the 105 kWh, 135 kWh, and 180 kWh battery packs.
The largest pack will offer over 400 miles of driving range. We mentioned impressive acceleration and R1T will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just three seconds. Those details are not confirmed but Rivian released them at the L.A. Auto Show recently. There will be four electric motors, a single motor for each wheel. The 2020 Rivian R1T can tow up to 11,000 pounds and you can charge this pickup from 0 to 80 percent in less than an hour.
2020 Rivian R1T Release Date And Price
The upcoming 2020 Rivian R1T will hit the markets at the beginning of the next year. This model will try to compete with Tesla’s pickup truck, a race we can’t wait to see. Price is not available at the moment but we can expect the price to start between $65,000 and $70,000.
