Owner Review

Rivian R1T - The Do-Everything EV

After nearly 2 months of ownership, I can say the Rivian R1T is the ultimate do-everything EV. I've done everything from beating a Porsche 911 GT3 in a drag race to hauling several hundred pounds of dirt and construction material to a landfill. 

The Rivian is incredibly practical for everyday use, absurdly quick, and extremely comfortable. It is precisely that balance of performance, utility, and comfort that make the Rivian R1T such an exceptional EV. 

To be honest, if the minor fit/finish issues and software bugs were ironed out, I would have a very hard time finding anything critical to say about this vehicle.
