Rivian's pioneering R1T utility truck

We first became aware of the Rivian brand, an American start-up, while watching The Long Way Up, the latest motorcycle adventure from Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman. It was an endeavor to motorcycle from Ushuaia in the southern frozen tip of Argentina, through South and Central America, all the way up to Los Angeles. Sounds a simple enough idea, until the boys decided they wanted to do it on prototype electric Harley-Davidson bikes. Not only that, they also wanted their support vehicles to be fully electric. The bar was officially raised.
