The 2020 Rivian R1T is an electric pickup truck. This model should be evolutionary in every possible way. Rivian is an automaker that didn’t put any product on the markets so far. R1T is something we’ve only listened about in recent months. Now, Rivian will release its first product, an electric pickup truck.
The 2020 R1T will ride on four electric motors. It is still hard to believe in Rivian’s claims about the performance of this truck. Rivian says the all-new R1T will tow up to 11,000 pounds and it will offer astonishing acceleration. Also, the off-road capable pickup truck will offer an impressive driving range. Somewhat strange exterior design is still looking attractive. From the inside, R1T will be luxurious.
2020 Rivian R1T Design
The upcoming 2020 Rivian R1T comes with odd appearance. We probably didn’t see something similar in the past. On the other hand, the design looks attractive and modern. We find most of the styling cues very unusual for the pickup truck segment. However, R1T is unique in every possible way. Front part sports vertical headlight units equipped with LED technology.
A single LED strip up front is changing colors. For example, during the charging, that strip will glow in green color. Side profile offers a more traditional look and the bed looks regular. Because of its off-road capabilities, R1T will offer skid plates as standard. So-called “skateboard” platform is height-adjustable and this truck offers 14.2 inches of ground clearance.
2020 Rivian R1T Electric Pickup Truck Cabin Features
The interior of the all-new 2020 Rivian R1T will look premium. There will be room for five passengers and the comfort is guaranteed. Literally, everything from the inside is pure luxury. As Rivian says, the plan is to compete exclusively in the luxury segment.
The cabin offers numerous displays and it offers leather upholstery as standard. Interior is not only functional but also practical and customizable. Numerous unique amenities are visible at first glance. One fine example is a “gear tunnel” that can be found under the bed. It is actually a storage area that is lockable. We’ll have to wait for further interior details, but so far, everything looks promising.
