Rivian-R1T

Rivian has been marketing the R1T as an adventure pickup ever since it went public, and even showed it with a sunshade on the roof during its 2018 debut. The company recently added an attachable tent, kitchen and other handy off-road adventure gear to its online configurator, marking the launch of the most practical “all-electric camper” in the United States.

The modular Camp Kitchen is located in the Gear Tunnel between the cab and the trunk platform. The kitchen system consists of an induction cooktop with two 1,440-watt burners, a sink with a sprinkler and a 15-liter water tank, along with a set of titanium cookware, vibration-resistant storage drawers and other components. The company even put a coffee maker and a coffee bean grinder in the kit. All of this slides out of the tunnel on a so-called Gear Tunnel Shuttle and is supported on a hinged leg. According to Rivian, the portable kitchen also includes 120-volt and 12-volt outlets.
