Rivian R1T becomes the best-selling EV truck in America

2022 Rivian R1T Truck Driving Front Angle

Since Rivian doesn’t split its sales by month, it’s impossible to say how many R1T units it sold in the month of June to compare with Ford’s claims. But if we take Ford’s 1,837 number and project it forward an entire quarter, it would come out at about 5,511 units, surpassing Rivians’ 4,401 number. Based on this logic, it doesn’t seem to take long to believe that the F-150 Lightning has recently surpassed the R1T.

Rivian faced manufacturing issues earlier this year, but the company’s CEO and founder, RJ Scaringe, says the company is still on track to meet its end goal of 25,000 units. “Supply chain and manufacturing are increasing,” he said on Twitter. The company’s second production vehicle, an SUV called the Rivian R1S, also went into production earlier this year and will go on sale soon.
