Pickup Rivian felt in the Arizona desert
Startup Rivian published the final test video of a pickup truck R1T in the Arizona desert. The purpose of the tests is to check the work sprostowania own inverters, as well as the effectiveness of cooling systems and vectorization of the thrust.
Pickup Rivian R1T is a computing platform on wheels. All elements of the power plant control sophisticated software that allows you to automatically determine the type of coverage and more accurate dosing traction on each wheel.
The SUV is equipped with four electric motors with a total return of 760 horsepower (1120 Nm of torque) and the traction battery 105, 135 or 180 kilowatt-hours.
Maximum ground clearance Rivian – 360 mm; fording depth is one meter. To protect the battery pack the bottom of the pickup reinforced carbon fiber and Kevlar.
From a standstill to 60 mph (97 kilometers per hour) R1T accelerates in three seconds and to 100 mph (160 kph) in less than seven seconds. Under such dynamic characteristics, the startup is positioning it as “a machine for adventure.” So the truck “learn” to climb the rocky slopes and rush at full speed on the sand.
