Rivian R1S

While combustion engine vehicles have a lot of cargo space, electric cars have an ace up their sleeves; they also have storage space that can be utilized under their bonnet, where a traditional engine is located. The Rivian R1S is an excellent example of this, as it has 11.1 cubic feet at the front and 46.7 cubic feet in the back. Along with great storage, this vehicle has brilliant off-roading capabilities with several terrain modes that can navigate low-traction areas.
