Leaked Rivian R2 Specs Hint at Supercar-Beating Performance for $47,500

Rivian is set to officially unveil the highly-anticipated R2 SUV on March 7, 2024. However, leaked specs discovered on Rivian’s website by EV enthusiast Chris Hilbert suggest the electric SUV will pack a serious performance punch.  

The leaked R2 specs indicate a blistering 0-60 mph time of just 3 seconds, rivaling high-performance gas-powered SUVs. It’s unclear if this lightning-quick acceleration applies to the base model or a higher trim level. Rivian has remained tight-lipped about confirming or denying the leaked details.

Other key Rivian R2 SUV specifications leaked include:

  • Starting price of $47,500
  • Up to 330 miles of all-electric range 
  • Seating for 5 passengers
  • Length: 185.6 inches 
  • Width: 75 inches (84.4 inches with mirrors)
  • Height: 66.9 inches
  • Maximum ground clearance of 9.8 inches
  • 115.6 inch wheelbase
  • 32 inch wheel and tire diameter  
  • 25 degree approach angle
  • 27 degree departure angle


If accurate, the R2’s combination of blistering acceleration, long range, and competitive pricing would position it as a formidable rival to electric SUVs like the Kia EV9 and Tesla Model Y. Prospective buyers can reserve the R2 starting March 7, with deliveries expected to begin in 2026.

The auto world will be watching closely on Thursday as Rivian lifts the veil on the R2 SUV. Stay tuned to see if these tantalizing leaked specs hold true.
