Rivian Modifies R1 EV Models

Recently, Rivian Automotive Inc. (NASDAQ: RIVN) announced major changes to the RI models to take proactive measures to make customers happy by improving the vehicles’ performance. As other budding EV companies are expanding their catalog with new models, California-based Rivian is focused on upgrading its current models. The company has announced numerous changes to the batteries and electrical components, which the company describes as the brains of the two vehicles.

The innovative electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer known for its R1T truck and R1S SUV sought the help of Nvidia chips to improve the computing power of its R1 pickup and SUV models, the R1T and R1S, redesigned versions.

One notable upgrade is the battery pack. This new 135bkWh battery pack provides 400 miles of range on a single charge, which is 20 miles more in range than the previous pack. The charging times for these vehicles have also improved. Within 20 minutes, the vehicle is capable of adding a charge of 140 miles of range. For long-distance travelers or those who rely on their vehicles for daily commutes, the upgraded R1T is a viable option.

Complementing the new battery pack is the quad motor powertrain. Each wheel is fitted with its own motor, providing an exceptional degree of control and traction. This means drivers can enjoy off-road capabilities, on-road performance and smoother handling.

Rivian has also made significant changes to the suspension and handling of the pickup truck and SUV. Thanks to the more advanced adaptive damping system, these new models have a smoother ride and improved stability, even at high speeds. Drivers will notice this feature while driving on rough terrain where they can easily handle challenging conditions.

Rivian has also updated the interior of both the R1T and the R1S to improve comfort and functionality. The seats now feature more sustainable, high-quality vegan leather. Overall, the vehicle’s design has been refined for both ease and comfort.

Rivian’s modification also extends to its technology and safety upgrades, which include improved infotainment system and safety features. The upgraded infotainment features a larger touchscreen display, high-resolution Blindspot monitoring and highway assist, improved connectivity options, among others.

However, these new and updated features come at a price. The R1T and R1S will now cost $69,900 and $75,900 respectively. The price for R1S has increased by $1,000.

While the exterior of these vehicles remains unchanged, the innovative electric vehicle manufacturer has done a lot to improve the vehicles’ performance and drivers’ experience on the road and cater to customers’ evolving needs. These upgrades have made the electric vehicle maker more competitive.
