Rivian (NASDAQ:RIVN) stock is down by 47% this year, although the electric vehicle (EV) company has a major card up its sleeve.

Earlier this month, Rivian unveiled its R2 SUV and also shocked its shareholders by revealing two additional vehicles, the R3 and its performance variant, the R3X. As of March 8, the R2 had already received over 68,000 reservations. Reservations cost $100 for U.S. customers and $150 for Canadian customers, with an expected delivery date during the first half of 2026.

The R2 resembles a smaller version of the R1S and will be Rivian’s most affordable vehicle yet, with a starting price of $45,000. The R2, equipped with the largest battery pack, will have a range of over 300 miles and a 0-60 mph time of less than three seconds.

As for the R3 and R3X, details are still scarce, and the starting prices of the vehicles have not yet been confirmed. Production of the two vehicles will begin after Rivian ramps up production of the R2.
