Rivian introduced the R2 earlier this month, but it was largely overshadowed by the retrolicious R3 and R3X. However, this didn’t stop it from making a splash at Electrify Expo in Orlando.

Set to arrive in the first half of 2026, the R2 follows in the footsteps of the R1S and features a familiar front fascia with a prominent light bar that cuts through vertical headlights. The similarities continue further back as both models have flush-mounted door handles and similar bodywork.

Other highlights include a sizable frunk and rear quarter windows with a vent function. The rear glass can also be lowered into the tailgate to aid with cargo loading or provide a “unique open air driving experience.”

While the family resemblance is strong, the R2 is significantly smaller than the R1S. Rivian has been surprisingly coy on specifics, but the model reportedly measures 185.6 inches (4,714 mm) long and this would make it 15.2 inches (386 mm) shorter than its big brother. The model is also smaller than the Porsche Macan Electric and is a strict five-seater.

Speaking of the cabin, it has a minimalist design that looks even classier in ‘real-life’ photos. The dash is the star of the show thanks to a flowing band of upcycled birch wood trim. The model also has a small digital instrument cluster and a widescreen infotainment system.

Additional details are limited, but Rivian said the R2 will use “premium, sustainable materials that are easy to clean.” Among them will be materials that are made from recycled ocean plastic.

Besides being eco-friendly, the interior has a squared-off steering wheel, dual glove boxes, and retractable cup holders. Both rows of seats also fold flat to allow for in-car camping.

The R2 rides on an all-new platform and will be offered with two different battery packs including one with more than 300 miles (483 km) of range. Rivian has also said we can expect single-, dual-, and tri-motor configurations with the latter allowing for a 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) time of less than three seconds. We can also expect a NACS port that allows the battery to go from a 10% to 80% charge in less than 30 minutes.

Pricing is “expected” to start around $45,000 although that could change by the time production begins. Speaking of which, the R2 will be built in Normal, Illinois and customers can reserve one today for $100.
