Rivian reveals details about its forthcoming A1T Pickup Truck and AIC SUV
According to a new report, EV startup Rivian Automotive has shared some interesting details about two electric vehicles -- A1T Pickup Truck and AIC SUV -- which it plans to produce at an old Mitsubishi vehicle-manufacturing factory in Normal, Illinois.
Rivian Automotive is a 2009-founded EV startup which was in stealth mode till 2017, when it took over the shuttered Mitsubishi factory for producing its electric vehicles. The founder of the start-up is MIT graduate RJ Scaringe, presently the company’s CEO.
The A1T Pickup Truck and AIC SUV which Rivian Automotive plans to build have nearly 91% of their components in common. Hence, despite their different form factors, both the vehicles will have fairly similar capabilities.
Going by the details revealed by Rivian, some of the common capabilities of the company’s A1T Pickup Truck and AIC SUV are: ability to reach 0 to 60 mph acceleration in barely 2.8 seconds for top version to around 5 seconds for the base version, Level 3 autonomous driving, and a 200-450 miles range depending on battery configuration (starting 80 kWh).
Rivian has also revealed that the price of the A1T Pickup Truck and AIC SUV will range between $50,000 and $90,000. Both the concept vehicles will likely be unveiled by Rivian at the 2018 LA Auto Show, with the production of the vehicles scheduled for commencement in 2020.
