this is new, tank steering for a fast 360 on a dime, by Rivian



While Rivian has said the video was not released in an official capacity, the terms "Tank Steer" and "Tank Turn" were both trademarked by the forward-thinking automaker lin September 2018, as Inside EVs revealed. Those trademarks are dead according to Autoblog, their applications failed.

the R1T and R1S utilize four independent motors at the wheels; there's no reason they can't rotate the vehicles — wheels spinning forward on one side and in reverse on the other, as in the video, to do a smart about-face

This video clip is CGI by the way.
