In fact, according to a post published on Wednesday by the Rivian Owners Forum, the company has just applied for six new trademarks, likely for future vehicles. Now, given the naming conventions that Rivian chose for its first vehicles, you might expect the new trademarks not to be all that exciting as far as vehicle names go, and friend, you'd be right.
The six trademark applications are R3T, R4T, R5T, R3S, R4S and, you guessed it, R5S. We'd expect that this means that Rivian will make three new trucks and three new SUVs, likely aimed at different levels of the market. We'd expect them to come in at slightly less than the R1 models, but that's just speculation on our part.
The first R1T electric trucks are now expected to start reaching customers in September, but they've been delayed before -- even-- so that is very possibly going to change. Still, given all the bragging that Emme Hall has been doing about the truck, it'll be worth waiting for.
