Rivian and, in general, electric trucks, are all the rage these days as finally big and capable EVs seem to be coming soon. Even Ford is working on an electric F-150, which we spotted charging just the other day.
The grand kick-off to all this electric pickup truck action really started before the R1T debuted in LA. The first look at what's potentially the first electric truck to come to market began when Rivian invited media to see the truck before hitting the stage in LA.
In this video, you get a rare look at the Rivian R1T electric pickup truck at a unique rock climb even hosted by the automaker. The quality of the video isn't the best, but it's unlikely another such clip exists.
Here's some additional info on this particular rock climb event:
