After The Storm: Rivian R1T And R1S Prices Compared

Earlier this month Rivian announced upcoming dual-motor versions of the Rivian R1S and Rivian R1T, as well as new, higher prices.

It didn’t go smoothly, as initially, the company wanted to apply the price increase also to customers with reservations. After a wave of criticism, Rivian announced that it will honor the original prices for those who placed reservations by March 1, 2022.

According to the new system, there are two trim levels (Explore and Adventure), two all-wheel-drive powertrain options (Dual Motor – DM or Quad Motor – QM / four motor), as well as three battery options (Standard pack, Large pack or Max pack).

The move from DM to QM costs $6,000. In the case of batteries, the Large pack option costs $6,000, while the Max pack is $16,000 (it’s not available for the R1S). The Standard pack is not available in combination with QM.

The DM version and Standard pack will be available in 2024, while the Max pack for R1T should arrive in 2023 (delayed from 2022).

Let’s take a look at the new prices.

In the case of the Quad Motor vehicles, new customers will have to pay significantly more than previously.

The Rivian R1S Explore starts at an MSRP of $84,500 (over 20% more than previously – $70,000). The Rivian R1T starts at an MSRP of $79,500 (over 17% more than previously – $67,500). According to Green Car Reports, also the destination charge is higher ($1,500 vs $1,075).

The new Dual Motor version is all-wheel-drive but will have less power and torque. Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph is expected to be slower (4 seconds instead of 3 seconds), but at least the towing capability should be similar at 11,000 lbs (4,990 kg).

The three battery options are expected to get an EPA range of respectively 260, 320 and 400 miles.
