2. Rivian R1T
The Michigan-based electric vehicle start-up has attracted investments from Amazon and Ford after developing an impressive electric vehicle architecture that can reused for different models. The R1T is expected to be the first major electric pickup sold in the U.S. when it begins production in late 2020. If it’s on time, Rivian will have at least a year head start on Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s electric Cybertruck.
