The arrival of electric utility vehicles has opened up a variety of opportunities for environmentally friendly off-roading, and the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust in Africa has taken advantage of this. They have customised a Rivian R1T to become an open-air safari ride with a completely zero-emissions output.

The R1T had its roof removed and replaced with a new, windowless lofted unit, providing two extra rows of seating for a total of 8. It was also converted to right-hand drive, making it unique among Rivian vehicles.

With its enlarged size and half-windshield, along with its new roof design, the Rivian looks like a giant golf cart - minus the 835 hp (847 PS / 623 kW) and 3.3 seconds to go 0-60 mph (0-97 km/h). Needless to say, it's certainly a unique idea, and we think this is easily one of the most notable transformations that has been done to the Rivian vehicles yet.
