Rivian backtracks price increase on all R1T, R1S preorders before March 1

Rivian has launched a new Dual Motor variant for its R1T all-electric pickup and the future R1S all-electric SUV while increasing the prices of its Quad Motor configurations of both vehicles, citing “price inflation of supplier components and raw materials.”

The R1T is available in two packages: Explore, starting at $67,500, and Adventure, starting at $73,000. Both vehicles will have Dual and Quad-Motor drive systems, with the Quad-Motor adding $6,000 to either package a customer chooses.

Standard battery pack vehicles will begin delivery in 2024, Rivian said.

Select early reservation holders will be grandfathered into original pricing. In an email to these customers, Rivian states:

“You may have heard that Rivian’s vehicle and option pricing have increased as a result of price inflation of supplier components and raw materials across the world. Since you are in the final steps of completing your transaction, your Rivian preorder will not be affected by these adjustments.”

Recently, Rivian announced it would work to increase production rates of the R1T pickup by 300 percent from 50 units to 200 units per week.
