American electric vehicle startup Rivian propelled itself into the world at the 2018 LA Auto Show. It isn’t just parading any old electric pickup truck around the show, instead redefining expectations with an all-electric performance machine built from the ground up to accelerate like a sports car, haul gear like a mule, splash through mud and water, and rack up family vacation miles on the highway. It calls this 753-hp, four-motor monster the R1T adventure vehicle, and it’s hard not to love it. Story by C.C. Weiss / newatlas.com.
