“Rivian re-examined what a modern pickup could be and the result is the most remarkable truck MotorTrend has ever driven, making it arguably the worthiest recipient of the ‘Golden Calipers’ in recent history,” the release said.

Other finalists for MotorTrend’s truck of the year were the Ford Maverick, GMC Hummer EV and Hyundai Santa Cruz.
Sky News is reporting UK Prime Minister has written Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe promising the government would use a special development order to facilitate the rapid construction of a new manufacturing plant at a site near Bristol, England.
In the letter, details of which have been shared with Sky News, Mr Johnson said that government officials had been instructed to devise a “bespoke incentives package” to encourage Rivian to give the green light to the UK project.
The PM added that the government would use a special development order (SDO), a rarely used legal power aimed at enabling rapid planning decisions, to facilitate Rivian’s use of the site, called Gravity.
