Rivian Files Patent For Star Wars Inspired Off-Road Feature | MotorBiscuit

Rivian has been putting out new features left and right. At this point, it’s hard even to dream up something you’d actually want in an electric truck/SUV that Rivian hasn’t already considered. Everyone has just now calmed down after the announcement of Rivian’s “Tank Turn,” now the coolest electric truck maker has patented a new turning feature with a name borrowed from Star Wars; “K Turn,” or as fellow Star Wars nerds might know it, a drop-kick Koiogran turn.

What does the Rivian K-turn do? 

According to Wookieepedia, “A Koiogran turn, or drop-kick Koiogran turn, was a combat maneuver developed by Kendra Novar that was utilized by starfighter pilots to escape pursuit. By pushing the throttle forward with one hand and twisting the control stick with the other, the pilot would lose all forward momentum and loop-roll in another direction.”
