Rivian has expanded its battery options for the R1T and R1S, at the same time lowering the entry prices for both vehicles. The Standard pack slides a 106-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery between the wheels. It can only be paired with the Dual Motor powertrain, good for a Rivian-estimated 270-mile range. Choosing Standard lowers the opening price of an R1T to $69,900 before destination and taxes. That saves $9,100 compared to the previous base option, the $79,000 R1T with the Large pack that gets an estimated 352 miles out of a full battery. The Standard battery drops the price of the R1S to $74,900, giving the same $9,100 discount off an R1S with the 135-kWh Large pack.

Above that comes the new Standard+ pack, a 121-kWh lithium-ion battery. It's configurable with the Dual Motor and Dual Motor Performance powertrains, good for a Rivian-estimated 315 miles. In terms of results, the Standard+ costs $3,100 to get 45 miles of additional range above the Standard. The price and range rundown (before destination) is:

R1T:

  • Standard Dual-Motor AWD (106 kWh, 270 miles): $69,900

  • Standard+ Dual-Motor AWD (121 kWh, 315 miles): $73,000

  • Standard+ Performance Dual-Motor AWD (121 kWh, 315 miles): $78,000
