When Tesla’s CyberTruck pickups bounced one after another, its number one rival, Rivian R1T pure electric pickups, has already begun to deliver and grabbed the first launch of Tesla pickups. According to reports,From September 14th, Rivian began to produce its R1T pure electric pickups, and soon began to deliver to users who booked in advance.However, a document submitted by the company to the US Securities Regulatory Commission showed that Rivian has not yet fully put into production.
Rivian said that as of October 22, it has started construction for five weeks and has produced a total of 56 R1T pure electric pickup trucks. These new cars will be delivered to customers in September 2021.As of October 22, 42 of them have been delivered, and most of the users are employees of the company.
Rivian is currently increasing its production capacity, but the latest information shows that the company’s production capacity is 2 units per day. Such capacity performance has also disappointed many investors.
Currently, Rivian currently has two models in mass production, namely the electric SUV R1S and the electric pickup R1T.
Among them, the Rivian R1T was officially unveiled in 2019, and the price of the new car was $69,000 before subsidies.At present, the starting price of the basic version of R1T Explore will be 67,500 US dollars, and the official said that the price will continue to be reduced in the future.
Compared with the appearance and price of the vehicle, the dynamic performance of the vehicle is more concerned. According to reports, the R1T is based on the Rivian sliding platform and is equipped with four motors.The maximum output power of each motor is 200 horsepower, the combined maximum power is 800 horsepower, the peak maximum torque is 14000 N•m, the zero-hundred acceleration only takes 2.8 seconds, and the cruising range can reach 724 kilometers.
In addition, the four wheels of the pure electric pickup truck R1T can be independently driven, using the differential speed of the tires on both sides, so as to turn in place. This turning method is also called “tank turning.”
At present, the car’s popularity in the market is comparable to that of Tesla’s CyberTruck, and it also has a certain competitive advantage in terms of price. After the car is listed in the future, which one do you think is more popular compared with Tesla CyberTruck?
