A VIN decoder appears to have revealed the names of Rivian’s planned vans.

The filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration seems to indicate they will be called 500 Van and 700 Van. Additionally, it appears the 500 will be available with both left-hand and right-hand drive.

The number refers to cargo capacity. So 500 equals 500 cubic feet, and so on and so forth. The filing also seems to indicate that Rivian will be offering the vans for fleet duty.

Available drivetrains seem to include all-wheel drive with single motors at each axle, single-motor front-wheel drive, and dual-motor FWD.

You can get all the deets here.
