Newsweek released the results of their inaugural 2021 Auto Awards and Rivian took home two awards!

They won for "Best Family Truck" and "Most Innovative Vehicle Brand"


The Rivian R1T isn't just a truck, it's a family hauler. The model delivers exactly what families are looking for: storage solutions, confidence in tricky terrain, fuel efficiency and comfort. The model's powertrain allows for nontraditional storage solutions, which Rivian has taken full advantage of by offering a large portable kitchen for sale with the truck, complete with sink and burners. The model also has out-of-the-box design, like the ability to pitch tents simultaneously on the roof and bed.


Newcomer Rivian isn't just making an all-electric truck. The Rivian R1T redefines what it means to be a truck with traditional capability that instantly drives it into relevance. A built-in air compressor, bedside button releases and clean digital interface design also work to set Rivian apart. Additionally, the company is working with Amazon to develop an all-electric delivery van for use throughout the U.S. The van and R1T share common technology with the R1S, an SUV coming later this year.
