The Rivian R1T is one of many future electric pickup trucks. However, it's arguably more real than any of its upcoming rivals. Rivian has tested prototypes over thousands of tough miles, and now, it's letting others get inside and take it for much more than just a spin. Added to that, Rivian is already building pre-production models at its factory in Normal, IL.
Update: Rivian reached out to us with an update to the story, including the following information:
"Emme wasn't using a production battery pack. Hers had about 75% of production capacity. According to our engineers (who took data from Emme's drive in real time), someone driving a production vehicle in Emme's shoes would experience an overall range average of about 220 miles of range a day were they living her experience with their production R1T. And yes, we included the sand!"
