If the future of electric limousines is taking shape in the United States with the remarkable arrival of Lucid with its Air sedan with a remarkable range, we must not neglect the other big market in vogue in the country. Pickup trucks are also ready to go electric and the competition will be just as fierce.

Last year Tesla presented the controversial Cybertruck, whose design and performance caught our attention. While the excitement is still there, the vehicle is not yet ready as the Palo Alto brand has to juggle with the construction of new factories in Europe and the arrival of the Model Y.

On the other hand, General Motors also announced its arrival in the world of electric pickup trucks by resurrecting the Hummer brand at the beginning of the year.Despite the announcements of these two great rivals in the automobile industry, it is the startup Rivian which has caught them by surprise. Production of the R1T electric pickup truck has indeed started!

Rivian thus takes a precious lead over its two rivals. The brand is even proud to show us its production process for the first vehicles, which will then be used to further fine-tune the settings to best meet the requirements of future customers.

  • I love the R1T’s design the most. Hopefully the vehicle delivers well and will eventually have lower models so they’re a bit more affordable

    • Same here, if they could make a slightly smaller one for the European/U.K. market, I’d seriously consider one. Looks very good so far

  • What fantastic news! Never mind Tesla, they can take care of themselves. This is a new, credible manufacturer, who has a real EV product up for sale in a market that in parts of the world (US) forms a major and significant role. It looks modern, rather beautiful, and completely acceptable by the existing customer base. One can wish it nothing but well.
