The first serial electric truck passed the “Hell’s Gate”, which is not within the power of all modified SUVs

We have already published excerpts from the first reviews of the Rivian R1T, which is the first mass-produced electric pickup. And now a video has been published on YouTube in which one of the first owners of the Rivian R1T decided to check out its popular place called “The Gates of Hell”.

This route is located in the town of Moab in eastern Utah, USA and looks more like a gorge than a road on which a car can pass. Specially prepared vehicles are regularly tested at this site, but in the case of the Rivian R1T, a factory copy was used with branded All-Terrain tires without additional modifications.

Rivian R1T received four electric motors with a total capacity of up to 750 hp. In addition, a battery located at the bottom of the hull moves the vehicle’s center of gravity downward compared to conventional vehicles equipped with combustion engines, so the Rivian R1T is less likely to tip over on such routes.

Recall that the Rivian R1T costs about $ 70,000.

Tesla continues to rewrite the price tags for its electric vehicles. Yesterday we wrote that some versions of Model 3 and Model Y have risen in price in the United States by $ 2,000, and tonight the flagships – Model 3 and Model X have risen in price. Moreover, by $ 5,000 at once.

Model S Long Range yesterday cost $ 90,000 in the US, today it is $ 95,000. The Model X Long Range was priced at $ 100,000, now it is $ 105,000. At the same time, the ordered cars will have to wait for more than six months: Model S Long Range for new orders will be shipped only by June 2022.

And here’s another interesting point. Historically, the Model X crossover has always been more expensive than the Model S, but now that has changed. While the Model S Plaid costs $ 130,000, the Model X Plaid can be ordered for $ 120,000. Moreover, in fact, this is one and the same car, the only difference is in the body type.

BMW expects to end production of internal combustion engines at its main plant in Munich by 2024. This was announced yesterday by the head in charge of their release at a conference dedicated to the start of production of the electric i4 model.

According to Milan Nedeljkovic, the engines currently being produced in Munich will be produced at BMW plants in Austria and the UK, although cars with such engines will still be assembled at the Munich plant.

By 2023, at least half of the cars produced in Munich will be electrified. This concept includes both the number of battery electric vehicles and hybrids with the ability to charge from the mains. What’s more, BMW CEO Oliver Zipse recently said the company would be ready for any ban on combustion-powered cars starting in 2030.

Tesla had already raised the price of its best-selling Model 3 and Model Y in the United States a few weeks ago, and now the company is raising prices again. Once again, the most popular models suffer. The increase was $ 2,000, however, it did not affect all modifications.

Thus, the Model 3 Standard Range Plus has risen in price from 42,000 dollars to 44,000. Interestingly, Tesla also updated the data on the lead time for the base Model 3 – new buyers will receive their electric car only in September 2022. However, it is possible to reduce the waiting period by several months if you choose larger wheels instead of standard wheels. Then you can get a freshly ordered base Model 3 by June 2022.

Tesla Model Y Long Range Dual Motor has risen in price from $ 55,000 to $ 57,000. Here, with the fulfillment of new orders for the Long Range version, it is also not easy: new buyers will have to wait for the crossover until August next year.
