K-turn mode will be added to the “tank” turn: powerful Rivian SUVs will be able to turn around the rear axle



For the electric pickup Rivian R1T pickup and the Rivian R1S SUV, the so-called “tank” U-turn was previously announced, which allows you to turn the vehicle literally on the spot by rotating the left and right wheels in opposite directions.

Now the Rivian company has patented and described the principle of operation of a new reversal mode called K-turn. It is intended for use on loose soil, when a “tank” turn can cause the car to bury itself in the sand and lose the ability to move.

In the K-turn mode, the front wheels turn, in contrast to the “tank” turn, when they only rotate, but do not change the steering angle. In this case, the front wheels rotate in one direction, and the rear wheels in the opposite direction. This should allow turning around a fixed rear axle.

The total power plant of the Rivian SUVs is 760 hp. with a torque of 1120 Nm. At the same time, it takes about 3 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h.
