Specs compared, Electrek:

A comparison between the two trucks is not perfect because there are a few pieces of information missing.

The fairest comparison is between the mid-range versions of each electric pickup truck:

It’s not perfect here, and there are two asterisks on the comparison because Rivian only disclosed the starting price of the R1T, $69,000.

Therefore, the price of the 135 kWh version of the R1T is not known and expected to cost more than $70,000 — likely closer to $80,000.

Also, aside from range, Rivian has only released the top specs, so some ratings, like towing capacity, could be lower for the other versions of the Rivian R1T.

If you compare the top specs from each vehicle, Tesla also comes easily on top with 100 more miles of range, 3,000 more pounds of towing capacity, and slightly fast acceleration.

On top of the powertrain related performance specs, Tesla has also some big advantages on the form factor — mainly a larger bed, which is important for a lot of pickup owners.

As for the base versions, Tesla Cybertruck beats the Rivian R1T in range by 20 miles and it’s almost $30,000 less expensive.
