Rivian's Electric Pickup Set to Arrive in 2021

By 2023, the battery-electric full-size pickup field will be quite crowded. Not only will you have vehicles from legacy automakers, including Ford's electric F-150, but you'll also have entries from startup truck makers. The growing list will include the 2021 Rivian R1T, an adventure-oriented short-bed crew cab pickup.

Unlike some rivals, which appear to be designed for commercial use, the Rivian is aimed at customers who want to get off the beaten track while demonstrating a bit of respect for the environment. Powered by electricity alone, you won't burn an ounce of gas while driving a Rivian pickup.

On the following pages, we'll take a look at what makes the Rivian R1T a compelling option in the rapidly expanding electric pickup truck market. Note that all specifications cited are preliminary and may change before the truck makes it to production.
