UPDATE: Rivian launches new Dual Motor options for R1T and R1S, increases Quad Motor pricing

Update: Rivian has reverted all preorders placed on March 1 or before to the original pricing.

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. Finally, customers can choose between a Standard Pack, which is available for the Dual Motor only and comes at no charge, a Large Pack, adding $6,000 to the price, or a Max Pack, which adds $16,000 to the price.

R1T range ratings for the new Dual Motor variants are as follows:

  • Explore Package, Dual Motor AWD, Standard Pack – 260+ miles – $67,500
  • Explore Package, Dual Motor AWD, Large Pack (+$6,000) – 320+ miles – $73,500

  • Adventure Package, Dual Motor AWD, Large Pack (+$6,000) – $79,000
  • Adventure Package, Dual Motor AWD, Max Pack (+$16,000) – $89,000

  • Explore Package, Quad Motor AWD, Large Pack (+$6,000) – 314 miles – EPA estimated – $79,500
  • Explore Package, Quad Motor AWD, Max Pack (+$16,000) – 400+ miles – $89,500
  • Adventure Package, Quad Motor AWD, Large Pack – 314 miles – EPA estimated – $85,000

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.
