Rivian is making its electric R1T and R1S models easier to drive through winter weather. The company has released an over-the-air software update that adds a ride profile called “Snow” and adds remote capabilities to its app designed to keep owners warm.

The new “Snow” mode sounds similar to the winter taming technology already offered by several automakers. When activated via the infotainment system’s touchscreen, the 10th powertrain driving profile softens throttle response to prevent wheelspin, selects a new brake regeneration setting called “Low” to prevent wheel lockup, and transitions to Auto hold work more smoothly.

Rivian explains that it developed the “Snow” mode exclusively for use on the road. It’s what you would choose if you ended up on a dirt road on your way to work. It is not designed for off-road use; The company recommends using the Off-Road All-Terrain mode for snowy trails.

In addition to the new ride profile, the latest round of over-the-air updates brings additional remote capabilities to the Rivian app. Owners can use their phone to remotely defrost the windows and wing mirrors and turn on the heated seats or heated steering wheel.

The update also fixes several software bugs, updates some of the suspension system settings, improves the performance of the regenerative braking system, and allows the vehicle to “sleep” even if a door is left open. Rivian owners will be able to download it from December 2022.
