PLYMOUTH, Mich. - Automotive technology company Rivian released a video Thursday teasing one of two all-electric vehicles that will debut at the end of the month. 

The two vehicles, pickup truck Rivian R1T and SUV Rivian R1s, will debut just before the 2018 LA Auto Show, running from Nov. 30 to Dec. 9. 

The teaser video is called "The Electric Adventure Begins," and focuses on the Rivian R1T. The full video can be seen below.
