Rivian R1T electric truck was seen driving in Aspen, Colorado. The new prototype truck is on display at the X-Games this week, but in order to get to the display it simply drove the short stretch.

The R1T was officially unveiled at the 2018 LA Auto Show in November. The truck on display at the show was a prototype unit, and Rivian told us that pre-production units are planned to be available by the end of 2019.
