2024 Rivian R1S Changes
The 2024 Rivian R1S receives its first round of updates since it debuted in 2022. The new Dual-Motor Performace model wrings even more power from the two-motor setup.

The center touchscreen adopts a drive mode page with enhanced controls. The R1S can now tow while operating in All-Terrain, Snow, and Off-Road modes.
