Video: Searching for Powder in a Rivian Electric Vehicle

Since I was on hand for the unveiling of the electric pickup truck from Rivian last fall, the company has taken the outdoor world by storm. Not only does the truck –– and its companion SUV –– offer an eco-friendly driving experience, both vehicles were built from the ground up with outdoor adventure in mind. We get a true sense of that from this video, which shows them being used an outdoor setting and on snow. Yes, the three-minute clip is mostly just a sexy looking advertisement for these enticing new off-road options, but it does give us a glimpse of them in action in a setting that we’d all love to be able to use them in. We’re still more than a hear and a half away from the launch of the R1T truck and two years from the S1T SUV, but already the excitement over the possibilities that these electric vehicles deliver is growing. This video shows you why.
