Rivian’s electric R1T pickup truck, R1S SUV get their official EPA ranges – TechCrunch

Rivian announced Friday the official EPA range for its first edition R1T pickup truck is 314 miles. Rivian's R1T SUV measures in at 316 miles.
On the U.S. EPA's website, you can find the official range and fuel economy values. Rivians' previous estimates of 300 miles are reflected in the official numbers.

Although the EPA estimates cannot account for all driving styles, the test cycle provides a reliable benchmark for customers looking for an electric car.

Rivian is the first electric truck to hit the market. Fords F-150 Lightning has a range of 230 to 300 miles in standard version and up to 300 in extended version. It is not expected to be on the market before spring 2022. Official ranges have not been released by the EPA for Ford Lightning.

Rivians Launch Edition R1T truck and R1S SUV are equipped with a 135-kWh lithium battery pack. These vehicles will be available for delivery starting in March.

These are the official EPA range values of our Launch Edition vehicles:

R1T Large Pack 314 Miles

R1S Large Pack: 361 miles

Both the R1T- and R1S models will be available in two trims. They both come with the 135-kWh-pack size. The Adventure version of the R1T has a premium interior and starts at $73,000. The R1T Explore trim starts from $67,500

The Adventure trim of the R1S SUV is priced at $75,500. The Explore package starts at $70,000.

Rivian plans to start deliveries of Adventure and Explore packages by January 2022.

Rivian plans to offer a larger pack for the R1T, the Max pack. The R1T's range will increase to 400 miles with the larger pack, which costs an additional $10,000. The EPA has yet to release an official range for either the max pack or any other editions, which includes a smaller battery pack option.
