An accomplished SUV that will hide in the shadows of its pickup twin in all likelihood

Does Rivian need any introduction? Arguably the most exciting startup to have emerged after Tesla, Rivian has put itself on the map with two products – the R1T pickup truck and R1S SUV – that are slated for a launch in the latter half of 2020. The Michigan-based startup debuted the R1S at the 2018 LA Auto Show. The Rivian twins have pretty much been in the news ever since then. Rivian is touted to be the next big thing in the EV industry, and from the looks of it, it could actually give Tesla a run for its money in the pickup truck and SUV market.

Just Like the Lamborghini Huracan EVO, the Rivian R1S and R1T Will Come Standard With Amazon Alexa

Amazon is making a lot of new friends in the auto world

Amazon has seamlessly slipped into the automotive sector quite successfully. Unlike Sony and Samsung, Amazon is not working on a product directly for now, but it sure has left a strong impression by working with some of the most happening brands of today.

At the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show, Lamborghini added Amazon Alexa to its feature list and this was nothing short of an honor for the Seattle-based company. But it doesn’t end here. Now, Rivian has announced that Alexa will be directly integrated into the hardware of the R1T truck and R1S SUV.

Clash Of Two American Seven Seater Electric SUVs That Can Do Supercars Well
