unlike other electric cars which only come with the ability for you to control alexa-connected devices, rivian has embedded amazon alexa into the hardware of its R1t pickup. the integration will give owners access to standard alexa features, like playing music, placing calls and navigation, as well as controlling other vehicle features including climate control, and opening/closing the trunk.

rivian has outlined plans to give alexa other capabilities designed for its vehicles like remote access to the rivian’s camera. embedded inside rivian’s pickup truck, it will stream using screen-based services like echo show and fire TV to show what is inside. it illustrates amazon’s reach into the automotive world after lamborghini also announced plans to bring alexa to its huracán EVO sports car.
