Rivian’s Powered Tonneau Cover Launches

Powered Tonneau Ready for Installation

It has been affirmed as a result of a post on the Rivian Forums that field testing of the electrically powered tonneau cover from Rivian is now concluded. It will be set up starting in the next few weeks. This follows the confirmation by Rivian that being able to mount a powered tonneau will be achievable in 2021, regardless of whether present Rivian owners have a manual lid or no lid whatsoever.

Confirmation of the most recent installation and testing update has been sent to customers via emails, and reports have indicated that the new units are “performing well in terms of durability and repeatability.” This is great news for those who have invested in the product, as it appears to be living up to its promise.

The electric tonneau cover ceased to be available last year due to concerns over its solidity. Alongside it, other attractive options like the Camp Kitchen and Gear Tunnel were axed in order to facilitate a redesign.

Prospective owners of the Rivian R1T will find satisfaction in knowing that the expectation for the electric tonneau cover is nearing its conclusion. Still, it’s tricky to overlook how long the wait really has been. Last October, Rivian conveyed to purchasers that they must abstain from obtaining the automated bed lid while the startup sought to solve a resiliancy problem. Nonetheless, that solution was yet to come and instead consumers were encouraged to make do with the manual one for the present time.

Despite certain issues, Rivian breathed a sigh of release as the veil of uncertainty has been removed and they can now resume their mission.

Evidently, many Rivian admirers are still enthusiastically looking ahead for certain things. Nonetheless, they carry on while being full of patience and expectancy.

The most highly anticipated arrangement of the R1T and counterpart R1S SUV could at one time consist of a Quad-Motor coupled with the Max Pack battery, however, this was halted in the later part of last year – albeit briefly (Rivian declared this fusion will become accessible at some point down the line). The business exhibited a Quad-Motor R1S conquering the Rubicon track earlier this year – the initial production electric vehicle to reach that ambition – pointing to certain headway being made. Fingers crossed that news disclosed soon.

Rivian has been noticeably minimizing its losses per manufactured car, and as demand climbs for distinct parts and designs, the opportunity for success appears to be more feasible. We just wish that the update of the powerless tonneau cover had not been declared too hastily.
