Rivian R1T Owner Review: A Great Start + Tesla Comparison Thoughts


In this video I am doing a quick review of my 2022 Rivian R1T, which was the first electric pickup truck on the market. This isn’t an EV deep-dive, instead I want to callout the highlights and some suggestions for Rivian. I sold my 2022 Tesla Model S for this electric truck and there are some comparisons between these two electric vehicles I’d like to make.

I am very pleased with the build quality and cabin materials used inside the R1T. It’s more like a luxury truck or SUV than a work truck in my opinion. It offers a slew of safety features including a 360-degree camera, blind spot monitoring, and gear guard which monitors your vehicle like Tesla’s sentry mode.

Some things, such as the software and tonneau cover can be improved. I’d like to see Rivian use Apple CarPlay or Android Auto inside these vehicles, but the touchscreen itself is very responsive and usable. I haven’t had a chance to take an EV road trip in the Rivian R1T yet, but it is on my list of videos so be sure to stay tuned and subscribe to the channel!
