Rivian Shows Off Brand New Second-Generation R1 Line of EVs

Rivian is introducing an electrifying update to its line of R1 EVs.


Rivian is back with its next-gen R1 series, delivering a powerhouse of enhancements and a sleek, modern edge. While the exterior of the R1S and R1T sees subtle updates with new headlights and taillights poised for future Adaptive Drive Beam tech, the real magic happens under the hood. Imagine a 1,025 hp Quad-Motor R1T, rocketing from 0-60 mph in a mere 2.5 seconds, with a staggering 1,198 lb-ft of torque. This isn’t just power; it’s electrifying innovation.

Inside, Rivian’s new EVs offer battery options that redefine long-haul efficiency. Choose between a Max pack for up to 420 miles of adventure, or a new lithium iron phosphate-based Standard pack with a solid 270 miles of EPA-rated range. The revamped electrical architecture reduces ECU clutter, while the in-house Rivian Autonomy Platform leverages advanced AI, cameras, and radar for superior driver assistance. Plus, with a head pump-based thermal system, drag-reducing aero wheels, and a Rivian-designed audio system with Dolby Atmos, these rides promise comfort and cutting-edge tech. With deliveries starting now, Rivian’s future is here.
