Is there any information out there regarding crash tests for the R1T? I read on the Rivian website that the vehicles are engineered to get top crash test scores but I'd rather see actual test results.

I can't find any IIHS stuff but has anyone heard anything from people at Rivian?

Rivian did some independent crash testing that included head on, small overlap and side impact. Too early for anything from the NHTSA or IIHS but that should around when deliveries happen.

I would think the dead space in the Frunk would absorb most of the force of the impact and make head on crashes much more survivable than in a typical ICE vehicle. That appears to be the case in these pictures.
