Rivian R1T “Tank Turn”

So the Rivian 4 motor setup has this trick move.



The Cybertruck obviously can't do since this, but at half the price, it might not matter. Though it also has the polarizing styling.

All wheel steering, that's what you need, especially when you have a long wheelbase. More trucks should have this.

Will the Rivian be as over promised and under deliver as the Tesla? Only time will tell.
When would you need that tank turn manuver? Will it be armed with a 30mm cannon?
