Rivian’s R1S packs a punch, not just in its specs, but in its price tag. At $70,000, the SUV is far from the most affordable option in an upcoming slew of super-powered EVs (Tesla’s Cybertruck will allegedly start at $40,000), but its premium pricing is exactly what makes it stand out. The R1S is a luxury vehicle and its price tag ensures you won’t forget it.
If the R1S is looking to compete with Tesla and its post-apocalyptic Cybertruck, it’s going to need to have some serious power. All signs point to that aforementioned power being readily available. For proof, just watch the R1S tear up this mountainside in the Moab desert. Pretty respectable for a stock SUV.
