Rivian is one of the most-talked-about EV start-up companies in North America. It’s claim to fame are its upcoming R1T and R1S pickup and SUV. While rugged and capable on the outside, little has been said about cabins, until now.
With the exception of Tesla, Rivian’s the only other EV company that has passed its introductory phase. Much has been written and said about its trucks, the four electric motors (one per wheel), and impressive battery pack capacities of 105 kWh, 135 kWh and 180 kWh. Priced from under $70,000 US, the R1T and R1S will be among the most powerful of their kinds with outputs ranging from between 402 horsepower and 412 lb.-ft. of torque to 754 horsepower and 825 lb.-ft. of torque.
At an event last week, according to carscoops.com, Rivian announced that they were benchmarking none other than Audi, Bentley, Lincoln, and Lamborghini for their interiors. The goal is for Rivian to be considered truly world-class in all respects. As for the cabins, the sense of quality will beyond materials to solid-feeling haptics and “quality” sounds throughout.
Beyond the luxurious and quality touches, Rivian will equip its trucks with the latest displays, from a digital 12.3-inch instrument panel and a 15.6-inch infotainment touchscreen display.
