A recent Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing reveals that Rivian has green lit the R1T pickup truck for launch in Australia. In it they state: "While we have analysed the principal laws in the United States, EU, China, Japan, United Kingdom, and Australia relating to our distribution model and believe we comply with such laws, the laws in this area can be complex, difficult to interpret and may change over time, and thus require ongoing review."

This comes months after R1T, R1S and Rivian-Amazon delivery van prototypes were spotted undergoing testing in Australia.
