Rivian releases a "Snow" driving profile update

Rivian is making it easier for its electric R1T and R1S models to power through winter weather. The company released an over-the-air software update that adds a driving profile called “Snow” and expanded its app with remote features designed to keep owners warm. When engaged, it softens the throttle response to help prevent wheelspin, dials in a new brake regeneration setting called “Low” to stop the wheels from locking up, and makes the transition to the Auto-Hold function smoother. The update also allows owners to use their phone to remotely defrost the windows and door mirrors and turn on the heated seats or the heated steering wheel.
