Rivian released a new progress report on YouTube that showcases their cold weather testing.
I was under the impression that R2 and R3 would be for different segments, and doubt they would do anything special like that for a different wheelbase model. But I could be wrong. Its just a bit unusual to me.RJ mentioned R2 and R3 models are on their way. I believe this could be some version of one of those.
The extended cab photo was shared in the article that went with this video.Where did that "extended cab" screen shot come from?
_"The R1 family of vehicles comprises the halo products, but lower-priced models are being planned. Scaringe says there's a whole slew of products to follow and the naming convention will continue, which means next up would be an R2 series of at least two smaller electric vehicles to coincide with the smaller platform they will ride on, then another platform for R3.
Rivian has not shown any of the future products, but the company is oriented to adventure-type trucks and SUVs. Executing means additional production capacity, different form factors, and different price points and markets, Scaringe says. It is reasonable to assume similar body styles but in different sizes."
The Drive reached out to Rivian and here's what they told them about the extended cab.
