The R1T’s battery pack can sustain a range of 314 miles on a full charge. To get the most out of this, the truck’s Conserve mode puts the ride in its lowest 9.9-inch setting with soft damping. High brake regeneration and full stability control are added to the mix while a small amount of torque is transferred to the front motors, ensuring that consumption is kept to a minimum.
The final Towing mode caters to those who aim to use the R1T as a truly all-purpose product. Here, the truck is placed in its standard ride height with a stiff setting. Full stability and high brake regeneration are switched on as well. Once the easy-to-fit Gen-Y hitch is installed to the rear bumper, the truck effortlessly pulls the large caravan with its 900 lb-ft of torque which is distributed to all four wheels evenly.
So there you have it – the R1T can do it all. Let’s hope buyers actually use them as more than silent status symbols.
