See Rivian R1T Electric Pickup Truck At Rock Climb Event: Video

FEB 6 2019 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 5

Rivian held this rock climb media event in Michigan.

We’ve uncovered rare video from a recent Rivian R1T  event.

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.

Since LA, Rivian has been active displaying its R1T and R1S electric SUV in places like Colorado, where we again got to see these two electric adventure electric vehicles in action.

Here’s some additional info on this particular rock climb event:

I was at the pictured event, and it took place the second week of January, well after the LA auto show reveal.

Looks awesome; very excited to see it for real one of these days. The switchgear on the driver seat looks the same as my F-150. Wonder if that’s the final design or something they poached for the prototype.
