Ewan McGregor’s Long Way Up features Rivian R1T electric truck, debuts Sept. 18
Chances are that if you have even a temporary interest in motorcycles or adventures, you have probably seen the epic travel documentaries Long Way Round and Long Way Down by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman.
We have known for some time that the Hollywood star and his buddy were working on a third series, Long Way Up, in which they would defy the wilderness of South America on their way to Los Angeles. Apple announced on Monday that the series is comingin September, but that’s not all.
One ofWe had about the series that instead of using their typical big ones , McGregor and Boorman only made this trip with electrons – especially with , specially modified for the rough things.
We also saw pictures of prototypesbe unloaded at a port near the motorcycles. We suspected – along with the rest of the Internet – that these would be used as support vehicles during the adventure.
Rivian confirmed on Tuesday via Instagram that two R1Ts took part in the 13,000-mile adventure. Hopefully the series will give an insight into the capabilities of one of the most anticipated electric vehicles in recent years.
Given the good performance of the previous two documentary series, the fact that most of it is the same crew working on it, and the different and exciting vehicles that are used, we have high hopes for Long Way Up.
Keep an eye out for roadshow to review the first three episodes that will appear before the series debut on September 18.
The Rivian R1T could be the electric pickup of tomorrow
