The Rivian R1T Quad-Motor AWD delivers a jaw-dropping maximum power of 620 KW (843 hp/831 bhp) and a massive total torque of 1231 Nm (908 lb-ft). This powerhouse can rocket from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in just 3.1 seconds, showcasing its astonishing acceleration. Additionally, it achieves a top speed of 201 km/h (125 mph), making it a true marvel of engineering and performance.

Battery, range, and charging

The high-capacity battery has a gross capacity of 135 kWh and a net usable capacity of 125 kWh, providing an 10 kWh buffer (7.4%) for battery protection.

The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) estimated range varies between 321 to 289 miles (516-465 km), depending on the vehicle’s configuration and options. For instance, larger wheels can increase energy consumption and reduce the overall range. The energy consumption rates are 2.6 mi/kWh for the base model and 2.3 mi/kWh for the top-tier version, according to the EPA standard test. For more details about the range, see real-world data and range listing on this model’s range and consumption page.

The vehicle supports fast DC charging with a maximum power of kW. Charging from 0% to 100% takes approximately 104 minutes, while a more typical charging scenario from 10% to 80% takes 42 minutes with an average charging speed at 125 kW. Considering an additional 5 minutes for each charging stop due to driving interruptions, the optimal charging range is from 0% to 45%. This results in an effective charging speed, including time lost, of 138 kW, with each charging session taking about 25 minutes and 30 seconds..

In a theoretical 1000 km challenge, starting with a full battery and maintaining a constant speed of 120 km/h (75 mph) under ideal conditions with an assumed consumption rate of 30 kWh/100 km, the trip would take approximately 9 hours and 36 minutes. This journey would require three charging stops from 0% to 47%, with a total charging time of 77 minutes.

Onboard charger

The onboard charger supports up to 11.5 kW for Level 1 and Level 2 AC charging. This allows you to fully charge the battery from 0 to 100% in approximately 10 hours and 52 minutes using a home charging setup.
