Influencers from across America were invited to test some of the first production-ready Rivian R1T pickup trucks. With over 830bhp and 900 lbft of torque, the Rivian R1T is being billed as the first electric Pickup Truck. It also carries a hefty price tag, with entry-level models starting from $67K. For that, you will get a near-silent, next-generation fully electric, Range Rover beating pickup truck and over 320 miles of range.
JerryRigEverything, who has one on order, is one of the top YouTube influencers who can get his name on a press launch without breaking into a sweat or begging, thanks to his 6M following. The YouTuber is known for destroy-testing mobile phones, and he was in good form when he partially destroyed the R1T’s front left tyre.
That gave him, Zach Nelson, the opportunity to replace the tyre with a full-size spare. We also get a tour of the Rivian R1T, which was tested in the rugged Colorado mountain range.
