‘powered by the same battery pack that powers the R1T, our camp kitchen is designed to make food prep easy and cooking fun,’ explains rivian. ‘it features a slide-out cabinet with an induction cooktop, built-in sink, dish rack, five-gallon water tank, and storage for all the camp utensils and tools you need to build a proper feast.’

the R1T electric pickup will be available in several configurations. there are a choice of three battery packs – 105 kWh, 130 kWh and 180 kWh. according to rivian this translates to 230+ miles, 300+ miles and 400+ miles on a full charge and an integrated fast charger. for more details on speccs including vehicle-to-vehicle charging see designboom’s previous report

  • Agree with Johnb: tents remain on camping place, truck allows daytrip > 50 km distance. Agree with Lyric Winn: kitchen can be used on any trip, with or without nightstay.

    Gabriël says:
  • Now the pull out kitchen is a very cool option. But don’t stop with just that option. How about a pull out work bench/tool box, complete with power outlets, work lighting, vise, a place to mount a chop saw or other bench top tool, maybe even a pair of saw horses? Throw on a optional rack on the bed and a guy can haul lumber, pipe, etc. Add a roll up awning on the side of the rack for shade and cover from rain. That would be a sweet work truck/ranch/farm truck.

    Lyric Winn says:
  • Great idea. BUT. It means the vehicle is fixed to the spot and would take some time to pack it all away in order to go for a trip. Would you want to go for a hike and leave all of this kit exposed to whoever?
    Toyata had a demountable some years ago that covered all of the hiker/camper needs and was a lot more secure, you could also drive your SUV away after demounting the camping/cooking muodule. So Rivian have simply re-invented the wheel.
