Basically if you are financing your SUV here for 5 years its and extra $200 per month for the extra 100 miles you will get upgrading your battery from 310 - 410 miles. Its always nice to have and I only really need this once a year when I'm on vacation. Everyone situation is different. I assume you will have to determine for yourself.The Rivian R1T & R1S will be available with three battery options ranging from 240-410 miles of range.
135 kWh and 180 kWh versions will be available from launch, with a smaller and cheaper 105 kWh version offered later on. 105 kWh pricing starts from $69,000 for the R1T pickup and $72,500 for R1S SUV. Guesstimated starting price of the 135 kWh version is around $80,000 after learning that Rivian CEO, RJ Scaringe said "the big-range [180 kWh] vehicle that's sub-$90,000”
- 105 kWh: 240 miles >$72,500
- 135 kWh: 310 miles >$80,000
- 180 kWh: 410 miles >$90,000
Out of the three, which one are you guys planning to get and why?
