Rivian has launched the ability to lease electric vehicles (EVs) in three new states, as part of the company’s plans to expand the option to new markets over time.

Rivian leasing, R1T and R1S re-launch, and R2 and R3 reveal

Rivian initially launched leasing options for the R1T in November, starting with California, New York, Florida, and Texas. The company said it planned to gradually expand the option to other states, and as can be seen above, it has held true to that promise.

In January, Rivian also debuted leasing options for the R1S, by which time the sales option had become available in 15 U.S. states. It’s not clear when or if Rivian plans to launch leasing in other countries, such as Canada.

Rivian debuted its next-generation version of the R1T and R1S earlier this month, after prototypes of the refreshed platform were spotted around California throughout much of this year. The updated platform features simplified production needs, including the removal of over 500 pieces of equipment, according to recent statements from CEO RJ Scaringe.

In March, Rivian unveiled its upcoming R2 line, which features a slightly shorter overall build than the R1. The automaker also surprised onlookers by revealing a follow-up platform, the compact R3.
