The American brand Rivian held a “closed” presentation of its two electric models, which are said to be the first electric vehicles for real adventures. They will be officially presented at the New York Auto Show.

The New York Auto Show is not officially open to the public until April 19, but this does not mean that the long-awaited event has not yet begun. A couple of days before the official opening, many automakers prefer to start exhibiting their new cars, mostly famous personalities are invited to these shows. That’s exactly what the company Rivian, which introduced the electric pickup R1T and electric SUV R1S.

 Representatives of the company Rivian, which is the largest manufacturer of electric vehicles from the state of Michigan (USA), promise to provide us with the “First electric cars in the world for real adventure”. It is reported that many guests were invited to the special, closed screenings.

The pier on the Hudson River, which is located near the showrooms of the New York Auto Show, was chosen as the venue for the “closed” show. Both the R1T pickup and the R1S sport utility vehicle have an opening / closing hood hiding a huge front trunk. While you, of course, can place there a lot of equipment / luggage that you need to travel, it will be quite difficult to unload and load heavy things.

These “closed” shows were organized mainly for VIPs and customers who placed an order for electric cars. Our foreign colleagues did not have the opportunity to take a full-fledged interview with representatives of the brand, so that all data on the updates remain unknown until their official premiere.
