We all know that that is an odd mixture — placing a luxurious compact sedan in opposition to a pickup truck in a drag racing problem. However however, it’s attention-grabbing too — two quiet electrical automobiles competing on a dragstrip in opposition to one another, and we get to discover Rivian’s potential.

YouTuber Branden Flasch purchased a Rivian R1T electrical pickup truck not too long ago and he took it on a drive to a dragstrip in North Carolina for a drag racing competitors in opposition to the Tesla Mannequin 3 Efficiency (video under).

On its solution to the dragstrip, we get to have a look at the middle touchscreen show of the Rivian in a little bit of element. The UI of Rivian’s heart show is kind of just like Tesla’s UI. Many of the association of icons and controls on the backside don’t look unfamiliar.

The Tesla Mannequin 3 Efficiency was the clear winner on this drag racing competitors on account of a number of components, like power-to-weight ratio, dimension, and Tesla’s software program optimization. We can’t await the day when Tesla’s Cybertruck hits a dragstrip in opposition to the Rivian R1T and Ford F-150 Lightning, its true rivals.

Let’s watch the video, and tell us your ideas within the feedback part under.
