First Rivian R1T Electric Truck Deliveries Take Place

After Rivian’s all-electric R1T truck started rolling off the production line last month, the first deliveries are now going out to the startup’s employees and earliest customers.

Travis Munson (@travislmunson), a facilities strategist at Rivian and former Tesla employee, took delivery of his Glacier White R1T on Friday, and proceeded to share images of the company’s first production vehicle on Twitter.

The R1T has received glowing reviews from tech YouTuber Marques Keith Brownlee (aka MKBHD) and Motortrend, with the automotive publication calling it the “most remakrable pickup” ever driven.

One eagle-eyed Twitter user noticed some apparent and disproportionate panel gaps in the fit and finish of Munson’s R1T — a manufacturing inconsistency that Tesla has caught a lot of flak for.


Munson took a road trip to Chicago as soon as he got his hands on the R1T, posting updates to Twitter from the road. He’ll definitely be going on a lot more road trips, and you can follow along @travislmunson.
