Rivian R3X: A Rally-Ready Electric Compact Crossover

By: Mobin

The Rivian R3X features a rally-inspired design with rugged styling elements inside and out, setting it apart from the standard R3 crossover.


Rivian openly calls the R3X the performance version of the R3, promising a level of on- and off-road performance that will excite enthusiasts.


R3X is expected to offer single-motor, dual-motor, and tri-motor powertrain options, with the quickest variant reaching 60 MPH in under 3 seconds.


While details are scarce, the R3X is likely to feature suspension upgrades or tuning to enhance its off-road and rally-ready capabilities.


The R3X is based on a shortened version of the platform used in the upcoming Rivian R2 mid-sized SUV, ensuring a strong foundation.


Reservations for the R2 SUV have begun, with deliveries set for early 2026. R3 and R3X deliveries will follow after the R2 launches.


With a long timeline ahead, Rivian may not share full details on what makes the R3X special for a year or two.
