The Rivian R1T configurator, recently released for individuals who have placed a deposit but out there to the community commencing November 23, has exposed that purchasers who want highest range in the electrical pickup truck will have to pay out a sizeable quality.
The major 180-kilowatt-hour battery pack with a lot more than 400 miles of EPA-approximated range—which Rivian now conditions the “Max pack”—adds $10,000 to the price tag of the truck.
The Max pack alternative can be added to the R1T Start Edition that Rivian confirmed final week. It will start at $75,000 with the 135-kwh “Large pack,” affording additional than 300 miles of selection, in accordance to Rivian.
Start Edition products with the Huge pack are scheduled to get started deliveries in June 2021, but Rivian claimed final week that the 400-mile version wouldn’t be readily available until eventually January 2022. A 250-mile edition, with a 105-kwh battery pack, is also in the performs, with timing to be announced right after the get started of generation.
Rivian previously teased that a camp kitchen would be accessible via the configurator, and a brief glimpse confirmed that it will be a $5,000 possibility. Built to slide out from a storage cubby in the side of the bed, it consists of an induction cooktop, sink, 4-gallon drinking water tank and pump. A cookware established is optional.
While the value of the Max pack may possibly appear substantial, it truly is a substantially greater deal, for occasion, than how Lucid has priced its Air—and, it seems, how Standard Motors intends to cost the GMC Hummer EV.
But that need to leave a slight earnings for Rivian. Centered on a 2019 average of $156/kwh (when seeking at the battery pack as a entire), the 180 kwh pack expenditures Rivian about $7,000 a lot more than the 135-kwh pack.
If you plan to once in a while tow, you can probable want to go major on the battery. But Rivian’s pricing framework could also be induce for folks to assume a very little more about just how substantially array they require.
