2023 RIVIAN R1T MAX REVEALED

2023 RIVIAN R1T MAX  – Rivian CEO and founder RJ Scaringe sent an email to Adventure and Explore package holders announcing the delivery dates. It doesn’t look good for those who preordered Rivian R1T pickups equipped with the Max Pack battery, or those who opted for Explore Package on their R1S/R1T.

This is the most popular configuration. Rivian has approximately 71,000 preorders for R1T and R1S products in the US and Canada as of December 15, 2015. Of the preorders, 80 percent were for the Adventure Package with Large Pack batteries. Rivian R1S and Rivian R1T were both built in America at the company’s Normal, Illinois assembly facility. Rivian R1T/R1S deliveries are scheduled to start in July. This is a significant step for the electric car company.

RJ Scaringe also confirmed that the Explore Package and vehicles equipped with a Max-pack battery will be built by 2023. Rivian explains the reasoning behind the decision, saying that “In setting our delivery times, we optimized the build sequence around the combination that would allow us to ramp up as quickly as possible and have the greatest possible positive impact on the climate.”

Rivian is aware of the disappointment that will cause for 20 percent of customers who order these models with delayed configurations. Rivian states that customers who reserve these models in 2018 or 2019 will have the opportunity to reconfigure the vehicle to an Adventure Package using a Large Pack battery to receive delivery in 2022. The American EV manufacturer will also clarify delivery times in early 2022. Rivian will introduce a new feature to its Account Page, which will show current delivery times. This information will be specific to each order and will provide accurate and current details about preorders to keep customers updated. Rivian will also contact customers who ordered R1T Max Packs and Explore Packages in January to gauge interest in reconfiguring an Adventure Package with large packs of batteries.
