Rivian R1T pickup truck’s aerodynamics in focus in latest teaser video
Rivian’s new teaser for its all-electric R1T pickup truck focuses on the upcoming luxury adventure vehicle’s aerodynamics, which resulted from countless hours dedicated by the company’s aerodynamicists, designers, engineers, and sculptors. The result of all these efforts is a truck that is tough, sleek, and capable of going 400-miles between charges.
The short video provides what could be described as a behind-the-scenes look at some of the work that went behind the creation and design of the R1T pickup. Much care was taken by the company to ensure that the vehicle’s aerodynamics optimizes range, which is incredibly important for an electric truck like the R1T, which is designed for both utility and luxury.
Rivian impressed the electric car industry by unveiling two nearly production-ready vehicles late 2018 following numerous years of operating in stealth mode. Together with the R1T pickup truck was the R1S SUV, a seven-seater utility vehicle that is also designed to be as comfortable off the beaten path as it is on paved roads. Both the R1S and the R1T are equipped with four electric motors that allow the vehicles to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3 seconds. Both vehicles also boast up to 400 miles of range.
