Rivian R1T Launch Edition trucks already sold out
Electric trucks are selling like hotcakes now...
As we all know, Rivian just released the configurator for the R1T (Pickup) and R1S (SUV) to a public. However, here's what you don't know: the launch edition of the R1T sold out days before the configurator was released to the public.
Anybody who reserved their Rivian R1T over the past two years had access to the configurator ahead of time, 3 days before the configurator went live. Those people got access to the configurator on November 20th; the public got their hands on it on the 23rd.
The Rivian R1T Launch Edition starts at $75,000. It has over 300 miles of range, and a 0-60 mph time of 3 seconds. It'll tow 11,000 lbs and, of course, it'll do a tank turn.
Having the launch editions sold out isn't all that surprising. Take a look at GMC and the electric Hummer; that sold out in a matter of days, if not hours. Electric pickups really are all the craze at the moment.
We don't know how many were initially available, but we do know that first shipments will arrive in June 2021.
