The smaller Rivian R2 is coming, and it’ll make it to Europe too

Electric truck and SUV maker releases a shadowy teaser image of its next model

Published: 21 Feb 2024

Rivian is preparing to reveal its next model on 7 March, and from this initial teaser image it looks as though the design department hasn’t actually been that busy.

We already knew the next Rivian would be called 'R2', and we now know that it’ll get pretty much the same face as the larger R1T pickup and R1S SUV. If it ain’t broke, and all that.

We’re fans of that friendly Rivian lighting though, and it’s likely the rest of the R2 will take more cues from the R1S. Oh, and it’s an American SUV so although it’s smaller than the previous one, it’ll still look massive to us Yoo-ro-peans.

Although saying that, the R2 is actually going to make it over to Europe. Rivian says it has been “designed for a global market” and that although the launch event will just cover pricing and delivery timing for the US and Canada, we’ll find out more about deliveries on our shores soon.

Anyone else hoping for a 'D2' special edition?
