The Rivian R1T electric pickup truck now gets 410 miles of range with the new Max Pack battery and Dual-Motor powertrain, the company claims.

Rivian posted range estimates for the Max Pack, which is not available with Rivian’s Quad-Motor powertrain, on X (formerly known as Twitter) on Wednesday, but those haven’t been confirmed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The 410-mile range estimate applies to trucks with 21-inch wheels. Opting for 22-inch wheels knocks the estimated range down to 380 miles. The available 20-inch wheel and all-terrain tire combination — which helps maximize the R1T’s impressive off-road capability — brings a further range reduction, to 355 miles.

The EPA previously posted official range ratings for some R1T Dual-Motor models with the middle Large Pack, which has a capacity of 135 kilowatt-hours compared to 180 kWh for the Max Pack. Large Pack, Dual-Motor models are rated at 352 miles and 341 miles with 21-inch and 22-inch wheels, respectively. In its social media post, Rivian also added a 307-mile estimate for Large Pack models with the 20-inch wheels and all-terrain tires, but that hadn’t been posted on the EPA’s website at the time of publication.

Rivian will post range estimates for Dual-Motor versions of the R1S SUV at a later date, but the same powertrain specs apply to both vehicles. The Dual-Motor powertrain produces 533 horsepower and 610 pound-feet of torque in standard form, allowing for a manufacturer-estimated zero to 60 mph time of 4.5 seconds. A Dual-Motor Performance tune increases output to 665 hp and 829 lb-ft of torque, dropping the zero to 60 mph time to 3.5 seconds.

The Quad-Motor powertrain, which is what the R1T and R1S launched with, is rated at 835 hp and 908 lb-ft, but that’s only good for a half-second improvement over the Dual-Motor Performance in zero to 60 mph acceleration. Thanks to the availability of the Max Pack, the R1T Dual-Motor is now also the range champ. The best the Quad-Motor version can manage is 321 miles.

Order books for the standard Dual-Motor and Dual-Motor Performance are open now. The Max Pack option is also available for the R1T, and will be added to the R1S configurator at a later date. Dual-Motor R1T models start at $80,800 with the Large Pack and $90,800 with the Max Pack. The Dual-Motor Performance option costs $85,800 with the Large Pack and $95,800 with the Max Pack. A smaller Standard Pack is also be available with the the Dual-Motor powertrain in both the R1T and R1S, but isn’t expected to start shipping until 2024.

Cooking in the Wild

Rivian is far from the only startup developing high-end electric vehicles. But instead of a sports car or luxury sedan, Rivian decided to build a pickup truck and SUV with genuine off-road capability. What do you do with that kind of vehicle? You take it camping, of course.

Fake engine noises in electric cars need to die
Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally driving on a dirt road.

You finally get that notification that the electric car you ordered months ago is ready for pickup. You get to the location, sit in the car and turn it on. Pulling out into the road, you hear something -- a strange noise you didn't quite expect. You expected the sweet quietness of a full electric vehicle. But is that ... engine noise?

It is and it isn't. As humans, we've been so used to the sound of an engine for so long that carmakers think we've associated that low-frequency rumble with performance and quality. So, what are they doing? That's right -- they're pumping fake engine noises through the speakers in your electric car.
