Rivian Opens Leasing Program In 14 States


Until now, the only way to buy a Rivian R1T was to buy a Rivian R1T. Whether buyers paid in cash or financed, the company did not offer a lease for its popular electric truck. Now, a total of 14 states will serve as the basis for the company’s new leasing program. Buyers can choose from 24 or 36-month lease terms. Moreover, the $7,500 federal EV tax credit still applies, netting buyers further savings on their lease.

Those 14 states are as follows: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington. Rivian’s website now features a tool that allows customers to personalize their lease terms, but only for existing inventory- the option to lease a custom-built truck isn’t available. Our preferred R1T spec leased for 24 months (10,000 miles annually) in Colorado would run a buyer with good credit (700-739) and $5,000 down $875 per month.
