Rivian’s Innovative Slide-Out Kitchen Will Be Offered With R1T

Rivian has confirmed that the novel pull-out kitchen it displayed in the R1T at the recent Overland Expo will make it into production.

The Rivian R1T was the first all-electric pickup truck to be displayed at the event. Perhaps the most noteworthy new feature was a kitchen that slides in and out of the truck’s cargo tunnel directly behind the cabin and includes a stove powered by the vehicle’s battery, adequate bench space, and a handful of different draws to hold anything owners may want to take with them – along with a sink with a five-gallon water tank.

Rivian says the kitchen will be available as an accessory when the vehicle launches, but did not disclose its price.

In a bid to establish itself in the fiercely contested world of electric vehicles, Rivian is attempting to carve out a niche for its R1T and R1S, marketing them towards those that like adventure and not just running to and from shops, schools etc. Patent images revealed earlier this year that the company is working on a handful of innovative and flexible bed designs for the R1T, including one that can fit a pair of dirtbikes and another with a solid topper.

Rivian will build the new EVs at a plant in Normal, Illinois that was previously owned by Mitsubishi. Acquiring this site cost the company $16 million and it intends on commencing production of its first two models next year, while at the same time it is also working on an off-road focused electric vehicle.
