Rivian To Add New Trims To The R1T And S Lineup Soon

AutoGuide has discovered NHTSA VIN decoder filings that show the Rivian R1T and R1S lineup will be getting some major changes in the future. According to the filings, Rivian will no longer produce the Launch Edition models, instead adding in Entry and Premium trims to the lineup, in addition to a new tri-motor configuration. Unfortunately, the filings make no mention of specs for the tri-motor powertrain, and we can only assume it will sit between the dual- and quad-motor R1T and R1S drivetrains in terms of power output. It also isn’t clear yet which battery packs will be available with the tri-motor setup.

The R1T and R1S lineup will now encompass three total trims: Entry, Adventure, and Premium, likely in that order. Currently, Rivian offers the R1T and S Adventure with dual-motor AWD, a Performance dual-motor AWD setup, and a quad-motor AWD setup. There’s no telling exactly how the new trim levels will change these offerings, but we should find out soon- Rivian’s NHTSA paperwork shows these changes could take effect for 2025 model year trucks and SUVs.
