Electric vehicle start-up Rivian announced new dual motor versions of R1S and R1T.
The dual motor trucks equipped with motors designed and built in-house by Rivian shells out 600 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque capable enough to propel the truck from 0- 100 Kmph in just 4 seconds.

Dual motor R1T with standard battery pack will cost USD 68,575/- and R1S with standard battery pack costs USD 73,575/-, which is same as the quad-motor models prior to the introduction of dual motors. Price for both quad motor models are increased by USD 12,000/- putting the R1T @ USD 80,575/- and R1S @ USD 85,575/-. Dual motor R1T is offered with a USD 16,000/- 400 mile Max pack.
