The image below is from the Emergency Response Guides 2022-23 electric pickup truck, the R1T. The highlighted areas below are made of high-strength steel for occupant protection. Hydraulic and battery-powered hydraulic will cut these metals, just remember to let the tools build pressure and do their job.
Below is the Youtube video of the 2022 Rivian R1T driver-side small overlap front IIHS crash test. It is a top safety pick after Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) crash tests.
You can see that the driver’s survival space was maintained well during the test.
