Rivian CEO Has InDepth R1T R1S EV Chat In Gondola Video

first_imgAt any rate, we absolutely love when a CEO is so candid. It has been very clear to us all along that Scaringe is extremely intelligent, very approachable, and highly professional, yet still fun and charismatic. Since Rivian spent years hiding its work and plans, it seems now there’s really nothing to hold back. Scaringe answers questions freely and doesn’t avoid the details about the company and its upcoming vehicles: the Rivian R1T electric pickup truck and the R1S electric SUV.So, grab some hot chocolate, kick back, relax, and pretend you’re in Aspen with RJ. If you don’t have time to watch the entire video right now, check out the video description below. Sean has broken down the times related to specific topics.

He’s in Aspen, Colorado, in a gondola with Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe. It’s about a 20-minute ride, and these two have no problem filling it up with interesting dialogue. We had hoped to interview RJ soon at the Plymouth office near Detroit. However, it appears we’ll have to up the ante to keep up with Sean. Perhaps we should take him kayaking, scuba diving, or skydiving?Additional Rivian Coverage: Rivian CEO: R1T & R1S Are Best Driving Truck & SUV In The World Author Liberty Access TechnologiesPosted on January 29, 2019Categories Electric Vehicle News This Lone Rivian R1T Electric Truck Video Shows All Source: Electric Vehicle News Watch Rivian R1S SUV & R1T Truck Roll Down The Streets Of Aspenlast_img read more
