Rivian has been road-testing their R1T electric pickup truck on roads across North America in preparation for its launch later this year. Numerous sightings of the truck have been posted to social media, and instead of the standard colours available when ordering, have featured uniquely designed vinyl wraps.

If you liked the designs of the wraps and wanted to have that for your own Rivian R1T, it looks like you might be in luck. After posting pictures of the R1T to their Twitter account, a user by the name of ‘Star of the North’ asked the automaker if they had a name for the design, asking further if it will be an option.
The automaker responded saying it was a “factory wrap that’s not available quite yet.” They also hinted that future buyers might be able to select it as an option when ordering the truck.
We agree, so we created a color for our vehicles to pay tribute to El Capitan! This R1T is featured in a factory wrap that’s not available quite yet but keep an eye out for more ways to customize the R1 in the future!

Rivian didn’t provide any further details on when it will appear, or how much it would cost. Given that their optional paint colours range from an extra $2,000 USD to $3,250 USD, it will likely be priced below, or at the low end, of that range.
