Tech Tuesdays – Rivian Electric Truck & SUV Release Date

What is Rivian? Rivian is a start up electric-vehicle manufacturer headquartered outside of Detroit and is focused on manufacturing commercial vans for companies like Amazon and adventure vehicles (trucks and SUVs) for the general public.

I own an electric car now, but I’m really excited about upcoming electric trucks and SUVs because I currently own a gasoline powered SUV and would love to change over to an electric SUV too.

Based on what I’ve researched online, I believe Rivian plans on releasing its electric vehicles, R1T (truck) and R1S (SUV), for sale in June 2021. Below are some videos about the R1T and R1S by Rivian:
