Rivian informed customers its R1T inventory shop has officially opened, meaning customers can get their orders sooner if they order through it.
“Now, there are two ways to get behind the wheel of the award-winning R1T. You can make a reservation and put together your own custom configuration. Or you can shop available R1T inventory that deliver in just one to six weeks,” Rivian said in an email to customers.
Rivian’s inventory shop is designed to get customers the R1T they want immediately. The search starts with customers typing in the ZIP code where they wish their R1T to be delivered. Then Rivian asks for their paint preferences.
For instance, under New Jersey ZIP code 08234 and blue paint options, one vehicle is listed: an R1T Dual-Motor AWD unit for $83,500, which includes additional charges of $6,000 for the large battery pack and $2,500 for the blue exterior. The R1T’s Ocean Coast + Dark Ash Wood interior also gets an additional $2,000 charge. The electric pickup truck’s estimated delivery date is one to six weeks.
A blue R1T with similar configurations would cost the same if customized. Custom Rivian R1T builds usually deliver in four months or less.
