The Rivian R3: Everything You Need to Know

March 11, 2024

Rivian revealed the new R2 SUV as expected. But Rivian surprised everyone by unveiling a second new vehicle, the R3. It’s one of the most intriguing EVs we’ve seen in a while for several reasons, including a style that echoes some iconic hatchbacks of yore.

The Rivian R3 exhibits a classic hatchback silhouette, but it will technically be a midsize crossover. (It’s slightly like the Hyundai Ioniq 5 in this regard.) Rivian will build it on the same platform as the R2. And it will come in at least two variants: the R3 and the R3X, a rally car-inspired off-road performance trim.  Gear Patrol
