The R1T is an all-new model from Rivian, and the company says it'll start delivering to customers in June 2021. It kicks off with a Launch Edition that starts at $75,000.

The truck will be sold directly to consumers, although Rivian says that it also will set up a network of service centers and Tesla-like stores. Going on sale soon after the R1T truck will be the R1S, a seven-passenger SUV with similar specs.
