Rivian Just Got Great News From The EPA About Its R1T And R1S
The Rivian R1T electric pickup is just weeks away from being delivered and its buyers are already getting an extra 15 miles or so of range. Both the R1T pickup and R1S SUV were certified by the EPA today with ranges of 314 miles and 316 miles respectively. This is up from the company’s earlier estimate of 300 miles, so this is good news for those customers that have been waiting.
And those reservation holders have had a lot to deal with. The delivery dates on the R1T have moved several times, now allegedly landing within a month. Surprisingly it wasn’t the semiconductor chip crisis, but regulators like the EPA and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. One of those blocks is out of the way.
