That Rivian R1T Electric Pickup Tank Steering Video: Fake News, Or A Little Bit of Truth?

Earlier on this week, a video surfaced showing the Rivian R1T electric pickup truck driving along a trail, stopping briefly, and then executing an on-the-spot 180-degree turn.

It quickly went viral, but later was revealed to be nothing more than a CGI video.

While the video itself may not be real however, we’ve done some digging into Rivian’s Tank Steering capabilities — and it’s closer to reality than you might think.
