Rivian’s 2024 Adventure Dual Motor Max Pack EV Review


2024 rivian r1s adventure dual motor max pack

Rivian’s new-vehicle warranty lasts for four years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. Batteries and drivetrains are covered for eight years or 150,000 miles. Both are significantly longer warranties than Tesla’s. Rivian also offers better crash-test coverage and a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Rivian uses the 2023 tesla x electric-drive system in all versions of the R1S, but the powertrain varies between the two configurations. The base Adventure Dual Motor has front and rear electric motors that send power to each of the wheels via a differential. This system handles torque control similar to that of a traditional gasoline 4×4, while a battery-based energy-management system controls wheelspin and traction.

2023 Tesla X: Features and Performance Highlights

The Quad-Motor R1S has an electric motor on each of the axles and is more powerful. Rivian estimates it can accelerate to 60 mph in less than three seconds and handle a wide range of driving conditions thanks to a suite of drive modes. Modes include All-Purpose, Snow, All-Terrain, Drift, Rock Crawl and Conserve.

The R1S feels spacious and refined inside. Its front seats are incredibly comfortable, while the second row is roomy enough for adults to sit comfortably over long trips. Third-row passengers will be more cramped, but those up to 6 feet tall should be able to fit on shorter rides. The infotainment system is a little laggy, but updates have addressed most of its issues. It’s not as intuitive as the systems in other EVs, though you can add Apple CarPlay or Android Auto if you prefer.
