2022 Rivian R1T Could Offer 301 Miles of Range or More

Speculations for the 2022 Rivian R1T have the electric pickup offer at least 300 miles of range

  • This is with the 20-inch off-road and wheels.

  • The information is taken off an R1T’s screen as it is charging.

  • Range indicated could increase as two electric motors can be deactivated.

We’ve been religiously covering Rivian’s story and we are admittedly big fans. It helps that their first two vehicles, the R1S and R1T are extremely interesting, and that, for the most part, the news is always good. This time, it’s about the R1T’s range and once more, it’s good stuff.

Motor Trend recently got the opportunity to drive an R1T (we’re very jealous) and in one portion of their review, they highlight some interior elements. One section shows the screen displaying data about charging and range while plugged in. It’s here that we see a series of numbers including Trip 301 miles, Extended 252 miles, and Daily 200 miles.

Based on Insideevs, this could theoretically mean that this 2022 Rivian R1T with the 20-inch off-road and wheels will offer an EPA-estimated range of 300 miles or more. The brief video shown above brings up several interesting questions. One of which is whether this number is based on four-motor use or, as two motors can be deactivated, in 2WD. As well, we’re wondering if the more street-biased 21- and 22-inch tires will improve on the range.

Finally, the R1T will be available with an optional Max Pack battery which will add roughly 100 miles of range for a total of at least 400 miles or 644 km+. EPA ratings are still pending review but we’re expecting more good news soon.
