The truck was able to pull off this zero-turn maneuver thanks to its quad-motor configuration — which allows each wheel to be driven independently.
The 788 horsepower R1T is powered by four 197 horsepower electric motors, each attached to each wheel.
It comes with three battery options that will go 230+ miles, 300+ miles and 400+ miles respectively on a full charge.
The R1T is scheduled for the first deliveries late next year while the R1S electric SUV should follow in 2021.
