So according to MotorTrend the R1T will have a Conserve drive mode that will convert the power train to 2 - Wheel drive where’s only the electric motors on the front two wheels will be providing power. It was mentioned this feature was added to reduce battery consumption thusly increasing range. Anyone have any insights on how much more range above 300mile one could reasonably expect in Conserve Mode?
Also, how much would using front wheel drive only affect vehicle stability and safety while driving on pavement? Inquiring minds would like to know. Guessing we are not going to know these answers until Rivian decides it is time to release their EPA numbers. Thinking, with deliveries beginning this month, its time to release this information.
