Trucks For Sale Peoria Il, Dump truck in power lines closes Kickapoo-Edwards Road-Electric automotive startup Rivian has now unveiled both of its debut vehicles: a pickup truck and sport utility vehicle geared to fit the luxury outdoor enthusiast niche market.
The Rivian R1T pickup truck and R1S SUV both promise quad-motors with 750 horsepower and 0 to 60 mph times of just three seconds, along with ranges of greater than 400 miles per charge for the battery packs with the greatest capacity. Production of vehicles pre-ordered with the most options is scheduled to begin at the former Mitsubishi Motors plant in Normal in 2020, with base models planned for the assembly line within 12 months of the first vehicles rolling off the floor.
“We’re launching Rivian with two vehicles that reimagine the pickup and SUV segments,” said Rivian founder and CEO RJ Scaringe. “I started Rivian to deliver products that the world didn’t already have — to redefine expectations through the application of technology and innovation. Starting with a clean sheet, we have spent years developing the technology to deliver the ideal vehicle for active customers.”

The vehicles were unveiled Monday and Tuesday in California ahead of their formal debut Friday at the LA Auto Show. Prices for each model start above $60,000 after federal tax rebates, and can be reserved with refundable deposits of $1,000 through the company’s website, www.rivian.com.
Rivian purchased the former Mitsubishi Motors plant in Normal for $16 million with a package of state and local incentives contingent on job creation. The company has previously indicated the plant will employ 1,000 workers or more once production begins.Both new models are built on a “skateboard” chassis that contains the battery power systems — technology that Rivian also plans to license to other automotive manufacturers. The battery cells are produced by a third party, but Rivian also has previously indicated that it intends to eventually build its own batteries, as well.
The pickup truck and SUV also are outfitted with radar, ultrasonic and other sensors, as well as cameras, which will allow autonomous operation of the vehicles after further development.
The all-wheel drive off-road vehicles also can safely drive through water up to three feet deep, the company claims.
