Many of you have seen machines that are deployed on the same place?
If you think the first electric pickup was Cybertruck from Tesla, it does not. At the end of last year, the Michigan startup Rivian Automotive was presented at the motor show in Los Angeles the first electric pickup R1T. The car received four-wheel drive, four motor, one for each wheel, giving him up to 764 horsepower, and can reach a maximum speed of 201 kilometers per hour. Novelty can accelerate to "hundreds" in just 3 seconds. As it turned out, that was not her only dignity.
Due to the application of the scheme by a separate motor at each wheel Rivian managed as flexibly as possible to distribute the power between the wheels — what you need to ride on the road, which was created car R1T. The added advantage of four-engine system, the manufacturer demonstrated with the help of roller : electric pickup truck just picked up and spun in place .
How the car is set in one place? Through the use of a separate motor for each wheel of the wheel on the left and right sides move in opposite directions. This allows to achieve the smallest possible turn radius.h2>The interesting electric pickup Rivian
Unique design feature of the pick-up Rivian is a pass-through Luggage compartment has a volume of 350 liters. It is located between the cab and cargo platform. An additional trunk is located where normally is located the engine under the hood. To protect the batteries located underneath the car, the latter reinforced by CFRP and Kevlar. In addition, R1T is equipped with adaptive air suspension, digital instrument panel and infotainment system with touchscreen.
the Interior is futuristic, but without going over
It Looks, of course, much more familiar than futuristic Cybertruck. Cruising range electric pickup truck varies from 370 to 640 kilometers. Everything will depend on the selected configuration.
Perhaps due to the appearance of this truck will be to buy better Cybertruck
Another interesting feature of this car — he can use a special charging cable. And in order to protect the owners from embarrassing situations on the roads and increase the range of drive, the company added the ability to install in the rear compartment of the vehicle batteries.
In the mass production of Rivian R1T will arrive in 2020. The basic version of the electric truck will cost 61 $ 500. Production R1T will be implemented at the former plant of Mitsubishi Motors in Illinois. Rivian bought it for $ 16 million. The capacity of production line is about 350 000 cars a year, but plans Rivian more modest. The company intends to 2025-2026 year to start production of 50-60 thousand cars a year.
It Seems that R1T will be the main competitor of the pickup Elon musk in the next few years. Although the benefits still outweigh the Tesla: so, one battery Cybertruck will be enough to overcome the 400, 480, or 800 kilometers, depending on configuration. Acceleration is also better — the latest version can accelerate to 100 kilometers per hour in about 2.9 seconds. And the cost of a Tesla pickup truck Cybertruck will be 40, 50 or 70 thousand dollars, which is slightly cheaper. What two pickups would you buy? Share in the comments and .
