Electric Rivian R1T Pickup Looks Electric In Blue

Rivian is on fire. In order to cool themselves off, they reveal a blue R1T pickup.

If we were an established car manufacturer that depends heavily on pickup sales in order to survive, we’d be a little worried. And we do mean a little. While Rivian will not be able to supply what will likely be very strong demand for their electric Rivian R1T pickup and R1S SUV, they certainly know keep interest afloat.

And all it took was a splash of colour. For the first time, Rivian’s revealed their coveted large electric R1T pickup in hue other than silver or green. While we think green does the truck good, we can’t help but to imagine that this un-named blue colour will find loads of love from potential buyers.

Actually, this new shade was introduced at a gathering organized for pre-order holders in Seattle, Washington.

As a reminder, the Rivian trucks, both this R1T pickup and the R1S SUV, will be offered with 105 kWh, 135 kWh or 180 kWh batteries. The latter is expected to deliver up to 400-mile or 640km of range and start just under $90,000 USD. Base pricing is set at $69,000 USD for the R1T and at $72,500 for the R1S, before incentives.
