Rivian unveils range for R1T electric pickup with dual Enduro motors

Rivian has announced the maximum driving range for the new dual motor configuration of the R1T electric pickup

Rivian has announced the maximum driving range for the new dual motor configuration of the R1T electric pickup after launching the long-awaited Enduro drive unit.

Apart from the electric pickup, the dual-motor option is also available for the R1S electric SUV. The EV brand is also planning to rely on the Enduro motors for its upcoming R2 lineup, the first model of which is scheduled to launch in 2026. When coupled with the Enduro drive units, standard 21-inch wheels and the most powerful (and expensive) battery back Rivian offers, the dual-motor R1T electric pickup boasts an EPA-estimated range of 410 miles, although the distance drops to 352 miles and 341 miles for the large and standard batteries, respectively. For comparison, the quad-motor variant, which was released last year and thus lacks the Enduro motors, features 328 miles of range. Rivian has yet to announce the range for the dual-motor R1S, although it expects to reveal the numbers soon.

Given that the dual-motor configuration provides more range with fewer components than last year’s quad-motor variants, it seems that Rivian’s new Enduro drive units are just as much show as they are talk. This is not to dismiss the quad-motor configuration, however, since the two models offer separate advantages depending on whether drivers are looking to take their electric pickup on the highway or offroad. While the better driving range is likely to attract customers, the price tag for the dual-motor configuration, which starts at $74,800, is likely to give some pause.
