Rivian and Amazon, of course, have a relationship. Amazon was one of the leading investors in the company with a $700 million round. Rivian recently also started deploying electric vans that are used for Amazon package deliveries in California and Colorado. The R1T and R1S are the two Rivian EVs that are going to launch soon. The R1T is said to have a range of 482 kilometres and a 3 second time to hit 100 km/h. It even has a 643 kilometres version of the vehicle which is scheduled for 2022. 

Rivian will be entering a crowded space of electric pick up trucks which includes the Tesla Cybertruck, the Ford F-150 electric, the Hummer EV amongst others. That being said, Rivian's R1T is one of the more promising models.  

The Rivian R1T has got a lot of promotion. It was even featured in the Apple TV+ documentary "Long Way Up" that featured Star Wars actor Ewan McGregor. Rivian has also been raising a lot of funds and also has raised money from Ford.
