Electric vehicle manufacturer Rivian may be in the production stages of its all-electric pickup truck. The company provided some teaser photos on Twitter that suggest production is underway of the EV at its Illinois factory.

Rivian has already previewed the R1T pickup truck, which will use the same electric vehicle platform as the R1S SUV. While prototypes of the electric pickup truck were already previewed and promised by the end of next year, based on the Twitter photos provided by the company, plans to produce may be already occurring.

In the Twitter photos, body parts of the R1T can be seen, which Rivian captioned, “Busy making metal!”

The electric automaker also suggested that it will begin offering test drives of the electric pickup truck as the company gets closer to production, Electrek reported. The company previously said, “We’re not offering test drives yet, but we look forward to getting people behind the wheel closer to production!”

Rivian claimed that it would be able to produce 250,000 EVs a year in Illinois, and has been one of the electric vehicle producers that have a facility in place to manufacture. The company has also partnered with Ford through a $500 million investment from the Dearborn, Michigan, automaker to help it come to market with its own electric pickup truck.

The R1T is expected to have a driving range of up to 400 miles and a base price of around $70,000, the news outlet said.
