The EV start-up Rivian got some good news this week. The mileage range of its first model, the Rivian R1T, has been vetted by the EPA. The organization announced the fully electric truck has a 314-mile range in its Launch Edition with the 135.0-kWh battery. The $73,000 R1T returns an estimated 74 MPG in the city, 66 MPG on the highway, and 70 MPG combined. Rivian’s SUV the R1S has a slightly longer range with 316 miles according to the EPA report. The SUV is not due out till early 2022. 

The California- and Michigan-based start-up has had both pandemic based delays and some final kinks to work out before rolling out the truck to the public. Originally due out in July, the date was pushed to September, which should work well with the EPA release of its mileage range, one of the most important prerequisites to boosting sales.
