Rivian - An EV Company to Watch


Jan 24, 2019
Meet R.J. Scaringe, Founder Of Rivian Automotive—And Tesla’s Worst Nightmare

Technically speaking, the R1T and R1S are very similar. They are based on the same skateboard-style chassis (meaning that all mechanical components—battery, drivetrain, suspension—are contained in it). They claim to offer outstanding performance, including up to 400 miles of range, which is nearly 75 miles more than any other EV currently on the road or in the pipeline for the next two years. And they promise exceptional handling and sports car speed—both will be able to sprint from zero to 60 mph in 3 seconds. Above all, Rivian promises genuine off-road ability. Try driving your Tesla on the dunes of a beach or up a rocky hill.
