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.
