Rivian R2, Rivian R3, and Rivian R3X on the new midsize platform go officialRivian introduced today a trio of new models based on its new midsize platform, which consolidates and eliminates parts thanks to intelligent design, including the use of high-pressure die castings, a structural battery unit where the top of the pack also serves as the floor, and closure systems that dramatically reduce complexity. All three models will share basic features such as: Rivian R2 is a midsize SUV that delivers performance, capability, and utility in a five-seat package optimized for big adventures and everyday use. The silhouette and face of R2 are distinctly Rivian. The powered rear glass fully drops into the liftgate for carrying all types of gear and enabling a unique open air driving experience. The interior is designed for ease-of-use, while being uniquely Rivian through a combination of inviting design and premium, sustainable materials that are easy to clean. R2 also features first and second row seating that fold completely flat, for gear, cargo, and even car camping. Pricing is expected to start around $45,000. R2 is available to reserve today in the U.S. for $100 with deliveries expected to begin in the first half of 2026.

Rivian R3 is a midsize crossover that is tidy on dimensions but delivers big in terms of performance, off-road capability, passenger comfort, and storage. The design of the exterior and interior of R3 are inviting and iconic. R3 demonstrates the scalability of Rivian’s brand across different form factors while continuing to be immediately recognizable. Rivian R3X is a performance variant of R3 offering even more dynamic abilities both on and off-road. The R3 will be priced below the R2 and the R3 and R3X deliveries will start after R2. R2, R3, R3X will be available internationally following their North American launch.
