We waited years for the Rivian R1T to be released, but it was abandoned after only 200 miles.

This is an example of a Rivian R1T Launch Edition. This was intended to be a limited-edition “Electric Adventure Vehicle.” The Launch Edition units sold out quickly last year.

Rivian unveiled the electric truck in May 2018 under the working name A1T, but rebranded it as the R1T in November 2018. Three years later, in September 2021, the first production R1T rolled off the assembly line in Illinois and was delivered to a customer. The R1T has a four-electric-motor all-wheel drive system that produces 835 horsepower (847 ps) and 908 pound-feet (1,231 Nm) of torque. The maximum range is 314 miles (around 505 km).

The Launch Edition comes standard with the Adventure package, which adds perforated, heated, and cooled seats wrapped in vegan leather to the interior.

There is plenty of natural-grain ash wood on board, as well as a Meridian audio system. There’s even a Bluetooth speaker that charges while being stored under the center console. A full suite of advanced driver assistance systems and an onboard automatic air compressor to inflate the tires whenever and wherever the driver requires are also noteworthy features.

A subtle and tasteful logo, as well as an exclusive Launch Green paint, are also on the menu. This green with a hint of brown is quite intriguing.

On the Copart website this Rivian R1T Launch Edition has an estimated retail value of $121,411 but at the time of writing, there was a $28,000 bid.
