Rivian, a new electric car manufacturer based in Michigan, will release its second production vehicle in 2022, a seven-passenger Rivian R1S sport-utility vehicle. The company currently produces two electric trucks, the Rivian R1S, and the Rivian R1T.

The Rivian R1S is the direct rival of the Tesla Model X, which is currently the only three-row all-electric SUV in the market. When the R1S goes on sale, it will also be less expensive than the Model X. Like the R1T, it has a 135.0-kWh battery pack that Rivian claims can deliver a range of 300 miles on a single charge.

Rivian R1S Highlights and Top Features
The R1S, just like the Rivian brand, is a newcomer to the SUV market.
According to the Business Report, customers will start getting R1S vehicles in the fall of 2021. It starts with a launch version of $75,500, but a more affordable Explore trim level will soon join the roster, along with the more affordable Adventure model.
Initially, the launch version will only be available R1S, but it should try to get one for as long as it can. It comes with several basic driver assistance systems as well as an all-glass panoramic roof and Wi-Fi connectivity for over-the-air updates.
The 2022 R1S battery pack, powertrain, most of the style, and many features are shared with its truck sibling, the R1T. With up to 800-hp on tap and a claimed time of 3.0 seconds from zero to 60 mph, we can’t wait to take one for a spin. Each tire on the R1S gets an electric motor, which gives it all-wheel drive and remarkable off-road prowess.
At launch, all models will come with adjustable air suspension and a ground clearance range of eight to 14.5 inches.
Individual functions are displayed on expandable tiles on the horizontally mounted infotainment system, with the essential options (navigation, media, and climate controls) always available at the bottom of the display. To decrease the system’s complexity, options slip out of the edge of tiles rather than plunging into submenus.
Rivian hasn’t said much about the rest of the infotainment system, but we’re expecting Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot.
R1S Electric Interior
The R1S, like the R1T, has a stunning interior with modern styling, plush leather, wood trim, and two huge displays—one for entertainment and the other for the driver’s gauge panel.
The R1S’ usefulness is enhanced by a 12-cubic-foot front trunk, a wide rear baggage area, a split tailgate, and a spacious-looking third row. Because this is a production model, the R1S’ futuristic exterior design and sophisticated interior will be preserved when deliveries begin.
