TL; DR: Rivian, the electric car maker and potential rival to Tesla, has been working for years on all-electric SUVs and pickups, and the two vehicles are finally set to hit the market in July after a month-long delay. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic has affected Rivian like everyone else, so it will delay the launch of both vehicles by several months.
For those who don't know, the R1T starts at $670,000 with a base range of over 300 miles, can go from 0 to 60 mph "in 3 seconds" (depending on which tire you choose), and can go from 0 to 60 mph "in 3 seconds" (depending on which tire you choose), Up to 11,000 pulls the load and gets off the road with ease. There's no rut on the road, which is why Rivian claims it has a row of sports cars.
Hence a key feature is the R1T's most notable feature: Tank Turn In Short, The Tank Turn is intended to allow R1T drivers to change direction on a coin, just as they would on a real tank, each wheel has an independent motor and can Work independently.
It's great to see it in action, so take a look at the clip above. Hopefully the Tank Turn does as it did in the video shown in September. If so, the owners Rivian is looking for something that sounds like a very interesting time. . Anyway, we'll find out later this year. If you have around $70 more, you can configure R1T through the official Rivian website, although you'll need to deposit $1,000 first. p>
