Rivian patented a regular minivan?


Several patented sketches of a versatile minivan have revealed a new development by Rivian Automotive. The pictures show a new, reliable sliding door system with two tracks, which is designed for family trips out of town.

Sketches for the new Rivian Automotive minivan have been added to the US Patent and Trademark Office database. From them, you can tell that Rivian Automotive is working on a model of an urban minivan.

The dimensions of the new item are similar to those machines that have been sold in the North American market over the past 20 years. They do not have any features of the Rivian Automotive models.

The minivan’s presence in the patent sketches stems from the company’s need for a versatile model to illustrate the true element it intends to register – its new side sliding doors.

As a result, it turns out that the side doors are different from the sliding doors that are in any van or minibus. They have a robust double rail system that allows them to be smaller in size. These types of doors are difficult to implement and are only developed if absolutely necessary.

It is possible that the American automaker is creating a country-style minivan, like the rest of the brand’s models. Or is it a new solution for a new electric van.

    Although it is definitely an unfinished replica, I would be interested in contact details, anyway. Maybe this could be an interesting project.
