Rivian R1T™ All-Electric Truck in action

Though we’ve seen interesting battery-powered electric pickup designs from companies like Workhorse and Bollinger, not to mention the rumored mammoth model Tesla is working on, the most compelling model we’ve yet seen is from a company called Rivian.

Built atop a common “Skateboard” platform, Rivian has introduced its R1T pickup and R1S SUV as a reimagination of their respective segments, says company founder and CEO R.J. Scaringe.
