At $136,991, Will You Overpay For This 520-Mile Rivian R1T Launch Edition?

The all-electric Rivian R1T is one of the electric cars of the moment and with customer deliveries now underway, is starting to prove itself against its combustion-powered rivals. Curiously, one example has recently appeared for sale through IAAI but does not have any obvious damage.

The R1T in question is being sold as a Launch Edition model and unlike most cars that you’ll find on IAAI and other similar auction sites, the Rivian isn’t in a sorry state of disrepair. In fact, it looks brand new and that’s because it almost is.

You see, while the car has been listed through IAAI, it is actually being sold by Lewisville Autoplex in Dallas, Texas, a dealership that stocks a plethora of new and pre-owned vehicles. Its listing doesn’t reveal why the original owner of the R1T has parted ways with it so quickly but confirms it is being sold with a clean Carfax report and has an asking price of $136,991.

Adorning the exterior of the electric pickup is a simple shade that Rivian calls LA Silver. The R1T is also equipped with two-tone black and silver wheels and sports a set of bright yellow brake calipers. Given that the truck has only been driven 520 miles (836 miles), it comes as no surprise that it is in as-new condition and could prove to be the perfect option for someone who isn’t willing to order a new R1T and wait months to take delivery.

As you probably already know, the R1T comes loaded with features. These include an advanced air suspension system, power sliding tonneau cover, a Meridian Elevation audio system, and Pirelli Scorpion All-Terrain tires measuring 275/65R20 at all four corners.

The $136,991 asking price is a lot. In fact, the R1T can be ordered from as little as $79,500.
