Ten Lucky Rivian R1T Order Holders Got to Drive the Truck

A handful of early Rivian reservation holders finally got a chance to drive an R1T


  • Deliveries of the R1T truck were set to being in September.

  • If you order a new R1T or R1S today, it should be delivered next January.

  • Rivian’s 10 lucky guests got a tour of the Normal, IL. factory as well.


We admit to being quite jealous of these ten individuals (and their +1). Rivian’s R1T and R1S look extremely appealing and their specifications are just as equally promising. The only missing element is to sample the vehicles.

A group of pre-orders holders now know. And based on the brief video shared by Rivian, they enjoyed the R1T’s power, handling, and off-road capabilities. From posts found elsewhere, the ten reservation holders were also given a tour of the Normal, IL. factory where the R1T truck and R1S SUV will be assembled.

Though the video looks like a commercial for the brand, we’re convinced that those who drove the trucks are now convinced that they’ve made the right choice. In the US, the R1T Explore starts at $67,500 and, should you order one now, you can expect to receive your truck by next January.

Rivian R1T Deliveries Delayed to September

As an automotive media, we look forward to an opportunity to review one.
