Here’s a question for you: When is a pickup not a pickup? In fact, the answer is simple: When it can be upgraded to other body types that are not truck-like, such as a van.

Patent images of the American pickup Rivian R1T, which were published a few minutes ago, show that it is not just a powerful electric vehicle with a cargo platform. In fact, the Americans came up with various configurations of their new products that turn a pickup into something more than just a truck.

The published images, in which the Rivian R1T is shown in the form of a car for the rest, a real working “horse” and something else, were attached with the official text. According to this document, the American eco-friendly car will be able to provide one of several selected configurations depending on the selected tasks.

This became possible through the use of modular architecture.

 So far, there is no official data on whether the American Rivian brand will actually offer its all-electric R1T pickup in various configurations. But it is known that the mid-size truck will receive a very large price tag. According to the general director of the company, the price for the basic version of the model will be about $ 69,000, and the electric SUV R1S will receive an initial price tag of $ 72,500.

  Rivian R1T is equipped with four 200 hp electric motors. each, and thanks to capacious batteries (three levels of capacity will be offered) the pickup will be able to travel a distance of 370, 480 or 640 km. The electric car received a wheelbase of 3450 mm.
