A New Electric SUV? SIgn Me Up! Rivian


Have you seen the RIVIAN SUV? Have you even heard of RIVIAN? Yes, it’s an auto maker and yes they are making some sexy all electric SUV’s and trucks!

As a designer myself, I am drawn to well design and good looking vehicles. RIVIAN has done an amazing job with the lines, shapes and colors of their R1T All-Electric Truck and the R1S All-Electric SUV. YES! ALL Electric!

For the typical SUV and truck buyer elevtric has not amounted to powerful in the past which kind of makes a eletric truck a bit of an oxymoron in concept. We will have to see what RIVAN has created here and see if it can stand up to the needs of the truck and SUV crowd. Here are the specs.

Rivian R1T All-Electric Truck Specs:

  • Range Up to 400+ miles

  • Acceleration 0-60 in 3 seconds

  • Payload 800kg

  • Towing Capacity 5,000 kg

Rivian R1S All-Electric SUV Specs:

  • Range Up to 400+ miles

  • Acceleration 0-60 in 3 seconds

  • Payload 800kg

  • Towing Capacity 3,500 kg

Ok, my long time followers know that when I test drive a vehicle one of the first things I look at is the gas mileage. That’s for several reasons. This all electric SUV has me so so hopeful that dreams do come true.

  • First, I hate paying the outragously high price for gas especailly when it hikes up during the summer adventure months.

  • Second, the less petrochemicals we use in our lives the better. Better for our health and better for our precous planet we have been given to care for.

  • Third, pumping gas is one of those chores I would rather not do.


The Rivian and are only available for pre-order at the moment. Prices start at $69,000 for the truck and $72,500 for the SUV which falls within the Range Rover price point with a $1,000 down payment required.

If you ask me I would rather spend my money on a good adventure vehicle like this than an oversized house! Downsize your house and upsize your adventurous side!
