Rivian R1T Towing: How Far Can It Go On A Single Charge?

The rivion r1t is a highly capable electric pickup truck with an impressive amount of epa estimated range however many truck owners are likely wondering how much range can might lose while towing a heavy load interestingly we just realized a few days ago that our friends who run the all-electric family youtube channel took delivery of their rivien r1t electric

Truck we published an article highlighting their first three videos with the r1t which are certainly worth watching the initial videos cover the rivian delivery the family’s first impressions dc fast charging at an electrify america station and towing however we had no idea that all electric families more detailed towing video would show up on youtube right after

We published the article about their r1t in the latest video above katie and steve set out to get a basic idea of how much electric range they should expect from the r1t while towing they make it clear that this isntt a highly scientific test but rather a first look at the impact of towing on the electric trucks range there are a number of factors that can impact

Ev range though as brand new owners getting a general idea of the trucks range with and without a trailer is an important start as we guessed based on the other videos all electric family invested in an airstream bunkhouse they had rented one to test with their tesla model x but we weren’t 100 sure if they ultimately followed through with buying one it makes

Sense that they moved forward with the airstream since they now have an ev that’s officially rated to tow it while the model x is only approved to tow up to 5000 pounds the r1t tops out at 11 000 pounds he also notes that they’ll run tests with different ride heights as the couple proceeds with the tests they reveal and discuss some important details which are

Specifically related to the r1t and towing these include using the rivien’s trailer hitch backup camera as well as the truck’s region related to the trailer brake feature sadly they note that the backup camera views angle and fisheye view make it difficult to line things up so they have to do it the old-fashioned way once the r1t and airstream are ready to go

Steve and katie set out to make some real-world range estimates all electric family provides many more details in the video including an estimate that their r1t towing the airstream in these conditions is likely to get about 140 miles of electric range which isnt bad this means they could potentially travel about two five hours give or take at 55 miles per hour

Before having to stop for a charge even if they played it safe they could probably stop about every two hours or so once you’ve had an opportunity to watch the video share your takeaways in the comment section below thanks for watching credits to insideevs.com please like my video and subscribe evpedia for more electronic vehicle news and updates
