A model new all-electric Rivian R1T pickup truck has just lately been vary examined at 70 mph (113 km/h) by our colleague Kyle Conner, for the Out of Spec Evaluations channel.
The R1T, with a 135 kWh battery, has an EPA Mixed vary of 314 mi (505 km), whereas its EPA Freeway vary is 292.9 mi (471.3 km). Each numbers are fairly good, however we should keep in mind that they’re legitimate just for the 21″ Highway wheels, whereas – in keeping with Rivian – the collection of different varieties would cut back the vary:
- 20″ All-Terrain – 10-15% discount, so 267-283 miles (430-455 km)
- 21″ Highway – 314 miles (505 km)
- 22″ Sport – 5-10% discount, so 283-298 miles (455-479 km)
The Rivian R1T examined by Kyle Conner was outfitted with 20″ all-terrain tires, which signifies that even a results of 10-15% beneath EPA can be in step with pointers.
The check outcome could be very optimistic as a result of the R1T was in a position to cowl 289.3 miles (465.5 km).
It is nearly nearly as good because the EPA Freeway vary for the 21″ Highway wheels (inside 1%). In comparison with the 314 miles of EPA Mixed worth, it is simply 8% decrease, however once more, above the producer’s pointers for the wheel/tire kind.
Based on the R1T’s show, the automobile consumed some 124 kWh of vitality, which might counsel that the 135 kWh is the overall battery capability. It will give us a quick concept in regards to the battery buffer measurement of as much as 11 kWh.
Total, a spread so near 300 miles and EPA is a really optimistic end result and proof that the Rivian R1T delivers on the promise.
Nonetheless, towing is a distinct story and one should keep in mind that the vary is likely to be lower in half, which was demonstrated by The Quick Lane Truck with a small and aerodynamic trailer.
