Rivian is a US company which needs no introduction to EV fans. It is developing off-road EVs on its own unique platform and has also partnered with Amazon to provide 100,000 electric delivery vehicles.
The vehicle range comprises the R1T truck and the R1S SUV, both with a 300+ mile range at launch.
The company says it is aiming to “shift consumer mindsets” towards the environment – for instance it is designing removable battery packs for recycling or stationary electrical storage. And it has “100% animal-free materials with mid-life repairability and end-of-life recyclability planned into the design”.
Rivian has announced it is also developing its own waypoint charger network in locations suitable for adventure travel.
