Rivian is Funk and Frunk

Would you like to have a truck that you can plug on electricity and fully charge the battery to drive for the next 500 kilometers without any worry whatsoever?

Well Rivian R1T is a truck built for whatever you call a road where your electric adventure awaits you. Under its floor sits a huge, 135-kilowatt-hour battery, good for powering the R1T's quad-motor, four-wheel-drive powertrain an EPA-rated 314 miles.

Don't be tricked by the size, Rivian can accelerate fast than many smaller cars with its 0 - 100 kilometers in just 3 seconds. At this speed, most 2022 hatchbacks including GTI are smelling its dust making it the fastest bakkie on the market. 

Legroom is plentiful, and with a high panoramic glass roof and so is headroom. The rigid-backed and bottom-hinged door and seat-back pockets deserve a special mention of their own. Rivian made use of the dead space between the cabin and the bed to create a cargo area that runs through the center of the vehicle and has doors on both ends.
