The Rivian R1S has yet to reach the production line, but a fan of the all-electric SUV has rendered a hardcore off-road version of it.
The two renderings are the work of Mo Aoun and were recently shared on LinkedIn. Pictured first up is an R1S designed for use by park rangers. It comes equipped with large off-road wheels and tires and features an increased ride height, a black bull bar, and a large luggage rack on the roof. There are also no less than six powerful lights mounted to its roof cage.
As for the second model, it is even more hardcore. Aoun has rendered the SUV with a large steel frame up front to protect the front bumper as well as a bull bar and a cage which stretches up over part of the hood, as well as a spare wheel fitted in the SUV’s frunk. Final modifications made to this example include similar off-road wheels and tires to the park ranger rendering as well as a large cage on the roof.
Rivian has its work cut out for it to bring the R1S SUV and R1T pickup truck to the market, but it is already working on a third model, namely an off-roader. It remains to be seen if this model will be based on the R1S, but if it looks anything like the SUV pictured, it could get off-roading enthusiasts interested in EVs.
