Rivian has launched a unique new trade-in discount on its vehicles in celebration of Earth Day, offering $5,000 off for those who trade select gas vehicles in for a new R1T or R1S.

On Monday, Rivian sent an email to prospective customers about the “Electric Upgrade” offer, a $5,000 gas trade-in discount that will also get buyers one year of free charging on the Rivian Adventure Network (RAN).

“Today is Earth Day—a time to celebrate the planet we call home and think about ways to preserve it for generations to come,” Rivian wrote in the email. “We want to help you get into a more environmentally friendly, zero-emissions Rivian vehicle.”

“Starting today, take advantage of our limited-time Electric Upgrade Offer and you could get a discount of up to $5,000 on a qualifying new R1 when you trade-in select gas-powered vehicles. Plus, you’ll also get one year of charging on the Rivian Adventure Network (powered by 100% renewable energy) at no additional cost.”
