Rivian Introduces A Camper Version Of Its Electric R1T Pickup

Rivian presented an intriguing camper version of the R1T pickup truck over the weekend during the Overland Expo West in Flagstaff, Arizona.

The show is dedicated to campers and off-road explorers and Rivian presented an R1T which could be the perfect companion for long and adventurous journeys away from civilization. One of the most innovative features of the R1T is the huge storage tunnel it has directly behind the cabin.

This tunnel can fit everything from skis and snowboards, as well as large duffel bags. In the case of the camper version, the storage tunnel has been designed to fit a mobile kitchen which easily slides in and out. This small kitchen includes a number of drawers, adequate bench space to prepare a meal, a kettle, and even an electric stovetop. Powering the stovetop is the pickup’s large battery pack.

In addition to this mobile kitchen, the R1T pickup presented was outfitted with a tent which sits above the bed with an access ladder.

While Rivian has yet to say if it will sell the R1T with these features, in particular the mobile kitchen, the pickup presented does show just how serious the car company is in showing off the versatility and adventurous nature of the vehicle. A host of patents from earlier this year revealed that Rivian is also working on a number of modular beds for the R1T to suit the needs of all buyers.

Rivian intends on selling the R1T in a number of different guises. The base model will have a 105 kWh battery pack, the mid-range model will support a 135 kWh pack and the range-topping model will have a 180 kWh battery pack.

    Gotta love the way all these investors are piling into Rivian; the diff here between Rivian and Tesla is that Tesla used primarily the owners money, whereas Rivian is using outside funding. But, I fail to see the big difference. I’m sorry but I just don’t see what makes Rivian so special as a standalone company. Investors love the skateboard setup, but…. I thought the same of Tesla, which is now having big financial problems.

      The difference being Tesla is a ponzi scheme, and Rivian is legitimate.

        No proof until they actually start selling… even then it’s still a tough call…

        • RIGHT? RIVIAN IS “LEGITIMATE” HAVING SOLD NOTHING BUT TESLA IS A PONZI SCHEME.

      • Would love to see your own ponzi selling hundreds of thousands of cars. Internet commenting, always entertaining!

          Check the headlines today? Not looking good for Tesla! And it has never looked good for Tesla when actually looking below the surface.

          -How much profit have Tesla made from selling cars? $0.

          -Why is it the only profit they have made is from selling carbon tax credits, not cars or solar panels? Because they are a carbon tax trading company who kind of sell cars on the side and barely sell solar panels (as in they are practically non-existent).

          -How many unsold cars do they have sitting in vacant parking lots and parking garages throughout California? Thousands upon thousands upon thousands. Insane amounts. Oh, but there’s a transporter shortage according to Elon (that no other car company has). Right!

          -Where’s the $35,000 Model 3 that was supposed to be the bread and butter of the company? Still non-existent after 3 years.

          -Why do only 21 homes (of Tesla employees) in California have the Tesla solar roof that was released 3 years ago? ???????

          -Why do they keep announcing new models when they can barely produce the ones they have available? To distract the general public from the mess happening behind-the-scenes, and to keep stock prices high.

          …And the list could go on forever. Tesla will go down in history as one of the biggest corporate disasters/frauds of this century, and all of the real car companies will benefit from them kick-starting the EV trend. Meanwhile, Rivian will likely simply be purchased by GM or Ford.

      • OH STOP PISSING ON TESLA. YOU HATERS ARE WORKING WAY TOO HARD. IF YOU DON’T LIKE THEM THEN DON’T BUY ONE. SOUNDS LIKE YOU INVESTED AND LOST SOME MONEY.

    I typically earning proximately $9314 /on monthly basis on internet . That has been wonderful earning potential to leave my previous life-sucking-in cubical job , Together with the most desirable feature concerning it is that I now complete all my business only several hrs on a daily basis which makes me significantly more of relaxation time in comparison to what I had before with my little ones.
