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.

  • Having the Rivian in the tv show Long Way Up was a marketing win. Their preproduction trucks were a huge part of the trip and showed how rugged and dependable the new Rivians are.

    • I have yet to watch the latest Ewan Mcgregor & Charlie Borman adventure so tell me is it worth it?

    • My wife and I enjoyed it. I was wishing they had 20 episodes I stead of just 10!

  • Just fiddled with the R1S configurator. Did the R1T yesterday. 85ish for either. These will be hot for a while.

    • Agreed. And they’re much cheaper than the Hummer EV which is a bonus

    • I think they’re targeting different audiences tbh, one is a more city-oriented toy/work truck, the other is an off road toy made to show off.
