Canadian Rivian Pricing Guide

The exciting and very novel Rivian EVs are designed to tackle everything life can throw at us


  • The R1T truck is priced from $90,000.

  • The R1S SUV starts at $94,000.

  • If placing an order now, expect delivery in May of 2022 (updated).


Rivian’s had its fair share of production delays but this has not slowed interest in the brand’s products. Last week, Rivian invited early order holders to finally drive an R1T pickup and the smiles say it all. They’ve also trademarked a number of new names and raised more funds. If you’re curious about the two current models offered by Rivian and live in Canada, here’s a brief pricing breakdown.

Ten Lucky Rivian R1T Order Holders Got to Drive the Truck

The R1T is priced from $90,000 for the Explore package. The more upscale Adventure package, listed at $97,250, adds a Meridian audio system, cooled seats, a power tonneau cover, and more. Both versions are delivered with the large battery pack offering 480+km of range. A max battery pack, good for over 640km of range, is a $14,000 option.

From here, there are nine different colours, six different wheels, and an off-road upgrade package ($2,750) to select from. The Adventure Gear options are what truly set the Rivian R1T apart from all the others. The various packages include the Rivian Camp Kitchen x Snow Peak and the Three-Person Tent + Cargo Crossbars. Beyond these two, there are numerous other accessories to select from.

The compelling R1S SUV is offered in similar packages as the R1T, namely the $94,000 Explore and the $101,250 Adventure. Unlike the R1T, the large battery pack is not listed as an option meaning that for the moment at least, only the large battery pack offering 480+km of range is available.

The same colours, wheels, and off-upgrades are on the menu. The R1S’ configuration enables seating for five or seven passengers and it can be delivered with the optional Three-Person Tent + Cargo Crossbars camping package.

As we all have families at Motor Illustrated, we’d start with an R1S Explore, paint it Forest Green, fit it with the 20-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, select the off-road upgrade kit (because why not), pick the 5-seater layout for more cargo room, and buy a Rivian wall charger ($670) for just shy of $102,000.
