Rivian Electrical Vehicles Have Been Driving By way of Tons Of Water

A few weeks in the past, somebody posted a video on YouTube of a Rivian RT1 launching a ship in Bear Lake, Idaho. Some supposed the entire thing was staged. Whether or not legit or not, although, the RT1 definitely did a superb job driving by the water and pulling a ship together with it.

I assumed it is likely to be helpful to write down about this video if for no different purpose than to reply the query many new potential consumers marvel and maybe ask — “Can an EV drive in water?” Alas, nobody felt compelled to write down an article in regards to the quick video.

Whether or not that is a part of an ongoing marketing campaign to indicate that an RT1 can drive in water, or the video above was used as inspiration for the tweet under, or we’re simply speaking coincidences right here, Rivian itself did take to Twitter yesterday to indicate some hardcore RT1 testing in simulated flood waters. Take a look:

So, yeah, the Rivian RT1 drives superb in water and might even pull one other truck or trailer behind it whereas going by the water. It’s a sensible, outdoorsy, rugged, robust, properly constructed truck. And I imagine all of that!

What are your ideas on these Rivian electrical vans treading water?
