Rivian R1T shows off its off-road skills in Arizona

The first units will reach the North American market during the month of June of this year, so all those who have decided to reserve a Rivian R1T will be looking forward to meeting your pick-up eléctrica. Meanwhile, the maximum exponent of the Californian firm has been commissioned to publish a series of videos in which you can see the ecological truck give its best in steep terrain and that is aptitudes off-road of this vehicle they promise, a lot.

Of tests in the desert

From the beginning of its development it was taken into account that the great objective of the brand would be to offer its product to all those customers who wish to combine daily driving in a relaxed way with adventure out of town, including unpaved sections that would be more appropriate for a true off-road vehicle. So it’s no surprise that the American automaker spends a considerable amount of time testing the R1T in harsh and challenging environments.

As we say, RJ Scaringe, Rivian CEO, recently published of the videos on his Twitter profile and in them you can see the electric pick-up demonstrating its off-road skills in the desert of Arizona. From the first moment the R1T already makes its intentions clear to us since it faces a steep and rocky trail that even the most capable 4x4s might struggle to overcome. The most curious thing about the document is that the electric model does not use large tires that facilitate its task, but it does use special ones.

Its angles of attack, departure, and ventral are 34, 29.3, and 25.7 degrees, respectively.

More than 700 hp

Regarding the second video, the R1T prototype makes its appearance on the scene descending a cobbled hill, with different slopes that test its off-road heights, the suspension tuning and the effectiveness of its four-wheel drive. Let us remember that this pick-up, in its most performance version, boasts a total of four electric motors capable of generating up to 750 horsepower and a maximum torque of 1.120 Nm. More than enough figures to reach 100 km / h in just over three seconds, although in these conditions it is not the data that interests the most.

Everything indicates that we will not see the Rivian R1T for Europe, since it will remain in the United States with an R1S that will make an appearance in the Old Continent, although it will be from 2022. In its local market it is already available in two different finishes and a special launch edition, with some prices ranging from 67,500 to 75,000 dollars (between 55,600 and 61,800 euros at the change).
