2022-23 Rivian R1T wins Top Safety Pick Plus award

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has awarded

 the all-electric Rivian R1T pickup truck with a Top Safety Pick Plus designation for the 2022 and 2023 model years

its "headlights and excellent safety framework"

 helped it win the title for the first time.

 The R1T not only performed well in each of the six IIHS crash test categories, 

but it also has front collision prevention

that received exceptional ratings in both vehicle-to-vehicle and daytime vehicle-to-pedestrian assessments.

 It also has "excellent" rated LED projector headlights.

Finally, the 2022 and 2023 Rivian R1T demonstrated its merits by being named a Top Safety Pick Plus

It is the greatest safety accolade 

the IIHS can bestow upon a car. 

even though numerous automobiles are in production
