The long-awaited Rivian R1T and R1S all-electric journey autos are nearing manufacturing and Rivian has simply opened up the web configurator so potential clients can choice the autos and see what the precise value can be.
The R1T Launch Edition starts at $75,000 and can be obtainable in June of 2021. The Journey trim additionally prices $75,000 and the bottom Discover trim will begin at $67,000. Nonetheless, each of these trims will not be obtainable till January of 2022. Additionally, these costs are earlier than any Federal or State incentives are factored in.
The Quick Lane Now takes us on a digital tour of the R1T and R1S configurator and comes up with a $98,000 fully-loaded value for the R1T electrical pickup truck and $82,000 for the R1S electrical SUV.
Whereas the $98,000 price ticket for the R1T is definitely excessive, it does embody the $10,000 “Max Pack” bigger battery choice and the $5,000 Camp Kitchen choice that installs a fully-serviceable kitchen within the R1T’s storage tunnel.
That is $15,000 price of choices than many will discover pointless. The usual pack within the Launch Version is estimated to be rated at “over 300 miles” per cost. That is extra vary than any electrical car at the moment obtainable that is not a Tesla, and will serve the wants of most individuals.
The one drawback is that since this can be a pickup truck, house owners should consider the range penalty for towing or carrying a heavy payload, and that may be important.
A Ford F-150 Restricted can simply exceed $80,000
However when you can dwell with the 300-mile pack and do not want the kitchen, your fully-loaded R1T is $83,000, and after the federal tax credit score, it nets out to $75,500. That is positively comparable to completely loaded pickup vans from Ford, GM, and Dodge.
Actually, I went to Ford’s on-line configurator and checked a lot of the bins for a Ford F-150 Restricted and got here away with an MSRP of $81,830. Contemplating that, the R1T pricing is not wanting too unhealthy in spite of everything.
I did the identical for a 2020 Land Rover Defender (notice I did not value out a higher-end Vary Rover) and got here up with an identical value. I checked many (not almost all) of the choices supplied by Vary Rover, and the MSRP totaled as much as $79,930.36.
The Land Rover Defender also can hit $80,000 when you absolutely choice it
That is almost the identical because the $82,000 value that the loaded R1S prices earlier than the tax credit score. Issue that in, and the R1S nets out to $74,500, greater than $5,000 lower than a loaded Defender.
One factor to notice is that the “Max Pack” bigger battery choice that prices $10,000 on the R1T is not but obtainable on the R1S. Due to this fact, the 300-mile+ estimated vary is the one choice you may have if you wish to be one of many first R1S house owners. We do not know for certain precisely when Rivian will provide the bigger pack within the R1S, however we imagine that the 300-mile model will serve the wants of most clients.
So try the video which works over each attainable choice and see the way you’d configure your Rivian. As all the time, tell us your ideas within the remark part under.
