-ON THE ROAD-

We are building the Rivian Adventure Network — a nationwide network of DC fast chargers capable of adding up to 140 miles of range in 20 minutes to the R1T and R1S.
The Rivian Adventure Network is designed for quick recharges so you can keep moving. Connecting cities on popular routes across the US and Canada, the network also extends further into more remote destinations.

Los Angeles to Tahoe. Manhattan to the Adirondacks. San Francisco to Seattle. I-70 to The Rockies. Michigan’s UP via I-75. California’s Hwy 395. The entire Blue Ridge Parkway from Shenandoah National Park down to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. All these routes and more will begin opening this year.

The Rivian Adventure Network will grow to more than 3,500 fast chargers at over 600 sites by the end of 2023. Each site will have multiple chargers and will be conveniently located on highways and main roads, often by cafes and shops. These DC fast chargers will be for Rivian owners only, with details on pricing and associated programs coming soon.

Rivian Adventure Network will be powered by 100% renewable energy. Through partnerships with electricity providers, we will use wind and solar wherever possible, as well as Renewable Energy Certificates to ensure your vehicle is powered with clean electricity.

Exclusively for Rivian owners

3,500+ DC fast chargers at 600+ sites by end of 2023

Up to 140 miles of range in 20 minutes for R1T and R1S

Automatic charging, just pull up and plug in

In-vehicle nav automatically plans charging

Charging rates of over 200kW initially and 300kW+ in the future

Powered by 100% renewable energy

We are also installing thousands of Rivian Waypoint chargers across the US and Canada. Found at shopping centers, restaurants, hotels, campsites, parks and many other locations, these Level 2 AC chargers deliver up to 25 miles of range every hour for the R1T and R1S, letting you grab extra miles while you’re out having fun.

Over 10,000 Rivian Waypoints are planned across the US and Canada through 2023. Our first locations were announced this week — all 42 Colorado State Parks will have two Rivian Waypoints each, with installation starting in July. More announcements will follow soon.

You can locate Rivian Waypoints, monitor charge status and get notifications through your in-vehicle navigation and Rivian app.

-AT HOME-

Charging your Rivian at home is really no different from how you typically charge your cell phone. Plug in at the end of the day and wake up charged.

Instead of running down your vehicle towards empty before stopping to refuel, you can top off each night so you have plenty of charge for the next day. If you forget to charge or choose to skip a few days — it’s ok. A daily commute won’t come near the amount of range you’ll have.

At home, the Rivian Wall Charger is the fastest way to charge the R1T and R1S. Delivering up to 25 miles of range every hour, drivers with our 300+ mile Large Pack can charge from near-empty back to full overnight.

You’ll be able to purchase the Rivian Wall Charger and set up installation when ordering your vehicle. If you finance your vehicle through us, you can also roll in the cost of the Wall Charger.

When it comes to getting ready, your Rivian Guide can help with everything — from finding the right spot for your charger to coordinating installation. After that, it’s as simple as pulling up and plugging in. The Rivian Wall Charger requires no maintenance, and you can monitor charging in real time through the Rivian app.



The Rivian Wall Charger

Up to 25 miles of range per hour of charge

11.5 kW charging speed

Wifi connectivity for OTA updates

Weatherproof for indoor or outdoor use

5-year warranty

Compatible with other EVs using the J1772 plug

Every Rivian also comes with our Portable Charger stored in the front trunk. It plugs into both a 240-volt outlet — used by many home clothes dryers and commonly found at RV parks — as well as a standard 120-volt wall outlet.

With a 240-volt outlet, up to 16 miles of charge is delivered each hour for the R1T and R1S. Drivers with our 300+ Large pack can go from about half charge to full overnight. When using a standard outlet, only a few miles are returned to the vehicle each hour. The 120-volt option is helpful in a pinch, but not likely your go-to daily charging method.



Whether topping off at home, making a quick stop across town or exploring far and wide, Rivian's charging solutions are the best way to keep your adventure going.


Our entire charging platform has been designed by Rivian engineers to deliver the fastest, most convenient way to charge your Rivian.

Through the Rivian app, you can monitor your vehicle’s charge status in real time. If you’re at home and your vehicle isn’t plugged in, we can send a reminder. You can also program your charger to turn on during off-peak hours for lower rates.

On the road, our in-vehicle navigation automatically routes you through any needed charging stops, prioritizing Rivian chargers as well as DC fast chargers from CCS partner networks. Simply enter your destination, our maps will plan charging for you.

We’re here for you. For many Rivian owners, this will be your first EV. We understand that it’s new and want to make sure you feel confident the first time you plug in. For any questions you might have about charging, please visit rivian.com/support for online help and to reach us by chat, phone or email. Our Customer Service Specialists are available Mon-Fri, 8 AM to 8 PM CST.

Really wish it was less vague. Is the 300 kw future available in current cars with updates, or future cars only.
I'm wondering if they haven't quite gotten the 400V/800V switching stuff working well yet. Hopefully that's the case and it'll just be a software update to enable it. I won't hold my breath until they actually start shipping cars that are 300+kW capable at the time of delivery though.

One thing that is interesting... it says the Rivian is compatible with other CCS chargers but specifically says everything can be done THROUGH the Rivian app to authorize and initiate the charge.

One would assume Electrify America and others would be integrated then ala Ford Pass.

I really hope they support plug-and-charge on EA, like Ford. This kind of implies they won't.

The RAN coverage looks impressive though.

Tough crowd...

Seems like a ton of information in there to me. Shows the rough projected locations for the next 2.75 years for the build out, I'm sure they do not have specific timings or actually final locations for many of these locations, especially past 2021.

It shows a RAN network with fast charger count of 3500 chargers in 600 locations dedicated to Rivians as well as another 10K L2 chargers that are open to everyone.

This is exactly the kind of information I am happy to see them starting to share. I do not want them to hold this close to their vests until all of the i's are dotted and t's are crossed. As a consumer, I am sure some of this will change before it is completed but gives a good idea of what it is they are planning.

This was more information sharing for the charging infrastructure and not necessarily tied to the specs of the cars but it does reinforce that they are still expecting to be able to meet the 140 miles in 20 minutes under optimal conditions for the RAN network.

I actually think this communication is spot on. It is not intended as an in depth technical document covering everything, not that this won't be needed prior to purchase for most. Also I am very impressed with the size of the RAN by the end of 2023. It's about triple the size of what I was expecting. I know many of us on this forum will still have a litany of questions but for the average consumer this is the exact info needed, nothing more nothing less. Thank you Rivian well done.

I'm with you. We just got a huge amount of info on the charging infrastructure. It didn't answer every question, but it answered a lot. Let's be glad about that.
