If you ordered a Rivian R1T Launch Edition, we have some bad news for you today. Automotive News is reporting that Rivian has delayed the first deliveries of the electric pickup truck until September 2021. Deliveries were originally scheduled to start in July.
The R1T Launch Edition starts at $73,000 and it comes in a unique Launch Green paint color with special badging. The Launch Edition has a 300-mile driving range, but if you want more range, a larger battery pack is coming later that increases the range to 400 miles. The larger battery will add an additional $10,000.
Sadly, the Launch Edition is already sold out.
The R1T Explore model starts at $67,500 and the Adventure model starts at $73,000. Both of those models will arrive in January 2022. The R1S electric SUV is slated to arrive in 2022 as well.
