Your electric adventure awaits

The Rivian Elevation sound system, engineered by Meridian features 21 strategically placed speakers throughout the cabin. In addition, a number of innovative proprietary technologies have been exclusively tailored for the R1S, resulting in a truly immersive audio experience throughout the cabin.

Oftentimes, the best experiences aren’t about where you end up, it's about the journey. With this in mind, The Rivian Elevation sound system has been designed to transport you inside the original recordings of your favourite tracks.

A trail to the middle of nowhere. A great mountain road. A long weekend with the family. Rivian is focused on building products that inspire and enable you to see the world, on-road and way off.
