Three new models from Rivian: R2, R3 and RX3

March 8, 2024

Rivian R2 and R3

The Rivian R2 is an all-new five-seat midsize SUV from Rivian. The power rear window drops completely into the tailgate, making it easy to transport all types of items. Rivian copied this from Fisker Ocean. The Rivian R3 is a mid-size crossover, geared more toward off-road use. The Rivian R3X is a performance version of the R3 that offers even more dynamic capabilities both on and off road.

Two battery packs

R2 and R3 get two different batteries. The larger package has a range of more than 500 kilometers on a single battery charge and offers 0-100 km/h acceleration in less than three seconds for the fastest powertrain configuration.


The Rivian R2’s price list is expected to start around $45,000. The R3 is also expected to be cheaper, making Rivian vehicles more accessible to more people. The R2 is already available to reserve in the United States for $100. Deliveries are expected to begin in the first half of 2026. Deliveries of R3 and R3X will start after the R2. Rivian’s plan is to offer all models – from the R1T, R1S and EDV to the R2, R3 and R3X – internationally, including in Europe.
