Right on cue, Rivian has launched the configurators for the highly anticipated R1S and R1T.
While it’s not configurable, the R1T Launch Edition will be the first model out of the gate as it will arrive in June of 2021. A similar R1S Launch Edition will arrive a few months later in August.
Moving onto configurable vehicles, the entry-level R1T Explore starts at $67,500. The truck comes standard with 21-inch wheels, but customers can also opt for 20- and 22-inchers with a variety of different tires. There are also two standard paint choices as well as seven optional colors which retail for $1,500 or $2,500.
Speaking of the exterior, customers can order an Off-Road Upgrade package which costs $2,000 and adds skid plates, front tow hooks and an air compressor. There’s also a $5,000 camp kitchen with a sink, stove and water tank.
Moving into the cabin, there’s heated vegan leather seats with performance stitching. Buyers will also find matte black accents and recycled textile floor mats.
The R1T Adventure is more luxurious and it begins at $75,000. The truck builds on the Explore version by adding a power tonneau cover and making the Off-Road Upgrade package standard.
Bigger changes occur in the interior as drivers will find perforated vegan leather seats with heating and ventilation. Other special touches include natural-grained ash wood trim, compass yellow accents, a microfiber headliner and Chilewich floor mats.
Deliveries are slated to begin in January of 2022 and both versions will have a “large” battery pack that promises to deliver more than 300 miles (483 km) of range. If that’s not enough, customers can opt for a so-called Max battery which costs $10,000 and increases the range to more than 400 miles (644 km).
The R1S is largely identical, but it eschews the Max battery pack and offers seating for up to seven people. The SUV also costs slightly more as the Explore variant retails for $70,000 while the Adventure goes for $77,500.
