Yes, Rivian trucks are for sale and have been since November of 2018, when they debuted the R1T and R1S at the LA Auto Show.

As you may or may not know, Rivian is a US company and is based in Michigan. The trucks will be built at its plant in Normal, Ill.

To put your name on the list, you can place your pre-order here. It's $1,000 and is fully refundable.

While official pricing isn't yet known, the R1T truck is expected to cost $69,000 before the $7,500 federal tax credit. The R1S SUV will cost $72,500 before the same tax credit.

All the details of what you get for that price point aren't known, but expect it to be the base 105 kWh battery with a range of 240 miles. A 135 kWh version will deliver 310 miles of range, while a 180 kWh version will top out the lineup with approximately 410 miles of range - very impressive! The R1T and R1S are expected to offer slightly different total range by about 10 miles.

Much like Tesla, if you're planning to purchase the 105 kWh version you'll be waiting a while as Rivian says they will begin production of those models later. The 135 kWh and 180 kWh versions will be available in the fall of 2020, meaning the 105 kWh versions won't arrive until 2021. In other words, if you pre-order one today you'll be waiting 2.5 years at least until you take delivery.

Interestingly Rivian is planning to have dealerships, but not for sales. Instead they will be "experience centers" and will be used to schedule test drives and spec out your model (isn't that what dealerships are for?).

Any ideas as to what the gear is that they send for pre-ordering? Assuming its Rivian memorabilia and accessories. From what we've seen with Tesla, people dont seem to have any issue ordering a new EV online, even sight unseen.

I'm interested in seeing how these depreciate once on the used market because demand will be high initially. However as time goes on and Ford, GM and RAM drop their battery electric pickups that could change.

Build quality on the demo models looks excellent, far above what we are seeing on even the latest Tesla products. But those kinds of shortcomings really only present themselves during mass production. Hopefully the same thing doesn't happen with the R1T/R1S.
