Looking for a rugged pickup truck with a plug? Rivian has an R1T for that, well, they will sometime in 2020… Aside from the long lead here there’s a great deal to be excited about. The truck is about the size of the Chevy Colorado, but power figures are more like Dodge’s muscle car lineup. You’ll get 402 HP in the base model and top trims will get your choice of 700 horsepower and the biggest battery or 754 HP with the mid-level high-performance battery. The big-boy model should scoot this nearly three-ton truck from 0-60 in 3 seconds. Range? Up to 400 miles if you get the big battery. On board charging is courtesy of an 11 kw charger and it’ll support the latest SAE fast charge standard for up to a 160 kw fast-jolt giving you 355 miles of range after an hour at the charger. The only problem? It’s 18-24 months away…
