Let’s try a few of this week’s information highlights associated to electrical vans.
We lately shared with you all the pieces we all know concerning the Rivian R1T. One factor we do not know is which colours the automaker plans to supply. Fortunately, Joshua from drivabledesigns.com has come by with some concepts. He offers us a primary take a look at what the R1T could appear like in numerous colours.
“I made these modifications to a Rivian R1T pickup utilizing a drawing app. I made the colours of the truck and two particular variations of the automobile, the Rivian R1T Stealth Truck, and the Rivian R1T Journey Truck. These will not be official manufacturing choices on the truck, simply renderings of superior variations of the truck.

Whereas Rivian’s automobiles are certain to be extremely succesful in some ways, the automaker can be touting the lineup’s utility and flexibility. When you’re not acquainted, the R1T has a novel “gear tunnel,” which has a number of makes use of.
Rivian has demonstrated a totally practical, pull-out kitchen that matches into the tunnel and will probably be a incredible asset to individuals who take pleasure in tenting.

To high it off, a tent matches proper within the electrical truck’s mattress.
This can be essentially the most harmful instance of coal-rolling we have ever seen. Not solely does the Ram driver pilot his truck erratically by reducing out and in of visitors and presumably rushing, but additionally the truck spews such thick smoke that drivers (not solely the one within the Tesla) are momentarily blinded from seeing the street forward.
Coal-rolling is each extremely harmful and unlawful, but it nonetheless occurs consistently. Let’s hope that these Teslas (outfitted with built-in dashcams) assist to catch the offenders and put an finish to this pointless act.
Whereas it is not so blatantly apparent as that crazy Ram truck driver that basically chased a Tesla to roll coal on it, this clip appears to seize a diesel Ford truck that drifts into one other lay simply to attempt to belch out a few of that nasty smoke on a Tesla.
