Rivian's battery warranty absolutely smashes Tesla's policy
Rivian vehicles look very promising indeed!
Rivian and Tesla are like Harry Potter and Voldemort. They would work well together to combine powers, but the don't and therefore don't exactly get on.
With this in mind, Tesla hasn't particularly been well known for its battery warranty, which is where Rivian steps in with its really impressive policy.
Rivian has come out and said that whether you opt for the R1T truck or R1S SUV you will get a comprehensive warranty covering any and all defects for the first five years or 60,000 miles.
In addition to this, Rivian pushes this further by covering the battery pack for eight years and 175,000 miles, which is more than the average of about 125K. The drivetrain is covered for the same period too while a corrosion perforation warranty carries no mileage limit and is active for the first eight years of ownership.
All this looks like fantastic news for the start-up company and makes us even more excited to see what becomes of them when they are finally released to the public.
