An online configurator for the all-electric Rivian R1T pickup truck and the R1S SUV has been launched on the official Rivian website. Among other things, for new products you can order a kitchen for $ 5,000, as well as a larger battery for $ 10,000.

The Rivian Online Configurator will only be open to the public on November 23rd. On November 16, the company only allowed it to be used by those who had already pre-ordered electric pickups and SUVs. Some of these guys, including Sandy Munroe, were generous enough to record a video showing the power to personalize electric new products.

When the company first unveiled the R1T electric truck, it also introduced an integrated camping kitchen that could fit in an electric pickup compartment behind the tailgate, between the cargo platform and the cab.

This neat camp kitchen will cost $ 5,000

Since there are no similar solutions on the market, Rivian can charge as much for this kitchen and similar options as it wants. However, we want to believe that this is a reasonable price for everything it offers: an induction hob, a built-in sink, a 4000 liter water tank and a pump, all in an elegant sliding solution. You can also order a 30-piece cooking / cookware set from Snow Peak.

The larger battery is called the Max Pack. Rivian mentions that thanks to it, the electric pickup can travel from charge to charge 643.74 km or even more. This option costs $ 10,000, but it is not available for the exclusive Launch Edition. It will probably only be offered for Adventure and Explore “packages”.

Sandy Munroe wants to get his hands on the R1T as soon as possible, so he chose the Launch Edition – he will receive his car in June 2021. The entire video takes less than five minutes. The R1S Launch Edition SUV is expected to be released two months later in August 2021. All other versions will be available in January 2022, as will all possible versions of the electric pickup.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Tesla accused Rivian of stealing its developments. Both companies specialize in the production of electric cars. Now it became known that Tesla is suing its main competitor. The reason is the theft of trade secrets.
