Rivian starts production of the R1T
The brand takes the lead over Tesla and General Motors
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.
