Rivian R1T Electric Pickup Starts at $75,000, R1S SUV Slightly Higher

  • The Rivian R1T electric pickup Launch Edition will be priced starting at $75,000, with the R1S Launch Edition SUV to start at $77,500.
  • Both Launch Editions will offer 300-plus miles of range, Rivian said, although an optional 400-mile battery pack for the R1T will be out in January 2022.
  • Deliveries start in June 2021 for the R1T and in August for the R1S, while lower-cost trim levels with less range will be coming in January 2022.

    While Rivian’s R1T electric pickup has made the auto show rounds and even transported the support crew for Ewan McGregor’s Long Way Up TV show, we only had an estimate of the truck’s starting price. Now Rivian has announced initial pricing for its upcoming electric pickup and SUV, starting with Launch Edition models that will offer 300-plus miles of range.

    The 2021 R1T pickup will be priced at $75,000, with deliveries to customers to start in June 2021, and the 2021 R1S SUV will cost $77,500 and go out to customers in August. The online configurator for existing reservation holders will go live on November 16, Rivian said. For the general public (i.e., those who haven’t yet put down a deposit on a Rivian), it will unlock a week later, on November 23.

    The Launch Edition models get a premium Adventure package that includes a panoramic all-glass roof, 4G Wi-Fi capability for over-the-air updates, and a 1000-lumen flashlight in the driver’s door. In keeping with the “Adventure” name, it also includes an Off-Road Upgrade package with a powered tonneau cover (for the R1T), an onboard air compressor, and a reinforced underbody shield.

    All Rivian vehicles will get Driver+, a hands-free driver-assist suite, at no extra cost; it will let the vehicle “automatically steer, adjust speed, and change lanes on your command,” Rivian said, although the company emphasized it requires the driver’s full attention at all times.

    Slightly more affordable R1T and R1S Explore models feature a manual tonneau cover (on the R1T) and matte black cabin trim. These will start reaching customers in January 2022, with a starting price of $67,500 for the pickup and $70,000 for the SUV, and the same 300-plus-mile claimed range.

    Another feature available in January 2022 will be a 400-mile battery pack for the R1T. At that same time, a lower-priced R1S and R1T with a 250-plus-mile battery pack will be coming.
