In a video posted onto YouTube this week, a stock version of Rivian’s R1T was spotted tackling Hell’s Gate in Utah’s Moab Desert. If you’re not familiar with that pass, just take a look at this video. Let’s just say... it’s a little steep.
Rivian’s truck is far from the first vehicle to traverse Hell’s Gate, but the feat does put it among a select few EVs to do so (Ford’s electric Bronco was spotted climbing the pass in May... backwards). It also proves just how much power you can expect to get once this thing is finally released.
