    Talking 10,000 foot pounds of torque!?!? 2020 Rivian R1T 4-motor all-electric pickup truck



    Okay, sorry for the clickbait, but that number IS out there (the guy in the video states it and I'm not sure if he's trolling or genuinely missed it...I actually didn't catch it for a second until I stopped to actually think for one second...), so it's not my fault. I claim innocence Obviously, it's 1,000 foot pounds...someone fudged a number somewhere and put 14,000 Newtonmeters in the spec sheet instead of 1,400...maybe they thought they were funny, but more likely a careless mistake. Honestly, it's kind of a big deal as far as I'm concerned. That sort of thing does NOT look good. But if the company delivers, I can forgive, haha. Also, I'm not sure if that number is even accurate. I read somewhere else that it has 826 foot pounds (probably the more accurate figure, I would guess, although I haven't really looked into it).

    *14 inches of ground clearance
    *0-60 in 3 seconds...
    *Project's head engineer is ex-McLaren/designer from Grand Cherokee project...

    Watch the video. This could well be that "the very near future" I've talked about in recent posts. In one sense, it is a bit lamentable that we seem to have reached the end of an era (death of the diesel and of the internal combustion engine relatively shortly thereafter).

    But, looking at the spec sheet and performance numbers for things like this, and some of Tesla's stuff, electric hypercars, electric Zero Motorcycles, etc.... Perhaps the future is not so bleak afterall

    He asked at the end of the video which I skipped to "let me know what you think":

    Internet eye-candy. Please call me when you see one on a showroom floor. No one is going to be using one of those on a farm or to haul anything. But definitely very pretty.

    i bet there were more than a few people saying the same thing 100+ yrs ago when that silly ford fellow wanted to replace the horse...

    ask 6000 GM workers about modernization... and or corporate motives.

    California wants to ban any gas or diesel powered rigs in the next few years. Looks like a ready made market for electric.

    Perhaps true, to a point but I'm thinking more about a truck and it's payload, not a suburban hipstermobile:

    In all its glory, one-ton stake bed. H. Ford, who was brilliant simply started bolting truck bodies on "T" model frames. Thus the "TT". The horse I suppose never had a chance:

    So with 750 hp and 1400 N-M of torque, why not make a real truck. Those number are better than any of the 3 diesel 1-tons out there.

    Another question is how is California going to charge all those electric vehicles?
    Do they have the Solar, Wind or Tidal electric infrastructures in place?
    63% of the electric power in the USA is DIRTY; it is generated from Coal(30%) and Natural Gas(32%) thermo electric plants. (1% from petroleum thermo electric plants) (Reference)
    17% comes from renewable and 20% from nuclear (I would prefer seeing CANDU as the source of this energy)

    In BC we can not even keep up with our electric needs via our Hydro Electric Dams - Hence the Site C Dam is being constructed.
    Vancouver has a natural gas thermo electric plant that runs a lot considering it is supposed to be a back up.

    By 2040 there are to be no more "petroleum run" vehicles sold in BC.
    I am all for clean energy, but it needs to be clean from the start.

    It's going to be a sad day when the only way to hear a howling V8 is to buy a recording.

    Wow cool truck! With the new battery tech that is coming down the pipeline vehicles like this are going to be more of a reality sooner than we think. I like that there is some big experienced engineers working on this vehicle. A jeep engineer worked on it and it has four-wheel-drive I like that. Gary L this truck isn’t much different than my 2015 Toyota tundra except that it has better performance numbers and 4 wheel drive and my truck doesn’t .

    Ford started making autos and many people probably said where are
    we going to get gas for them and then you see four gas stations on the corners all over the place. The same will happen with the electric charging station.

    Efrance probably 40% of the houses in my neighborhood in CA and now including me have solar on the roof top. There’s a lot of things that aren’t really made green but solar power even if it is dirrty to make is a really clean source of power that goes on and on for years and years just like hydroelectric power. If you look at Germany Norway and many countries they are mandating solar power for their countries. Imagine for a second if the US didn’t spend 60% of its budget on military an if that money was used differently it could be used to create infrastructure that’s green and self sustainable.

    It’s a dream but change has to start some somewhere.

    I must beg to differ. It is rated to tow 11,000 pounds IIRC. This truck wasn't designed to tow heavy loads, but rest assured, HD electric trucks are coming soon, and they should be able to easily compete with current diesel models. Also, the company employs 600 people, and it is already taking preorders for the R1T. If Rivian is smart, there won't even be a traditional showroom floor. Maybe one available for display/test drives, but that antiquated sales model is not the best for today's market. Online orders just like Amazon or Ebay...that's the future. Younger buyers don't put up with sleazy car salesmen anymore. That's history.
