Rivian has discontinued production of the Camp Kitchen, one of the most distinctive features of the Rivian R1T electric pickup truck. The Camp Kitchen is a $5,000 option that comes with a two-burner induction hob, removable sink, storage drawer and 4-gallon water tank.
Rivian in an email to reservation holders said the company is temporarily stopping production of the Camp Kitchen for a redesign. Customers who add the Camp Kitche option may not make their deliveries in time. The company didn’t give details as to why the kitchen was redesigned, apparently finding some flaws.
The Rivian R1T electric pickup truck currently starts at $73,000. The electric pickup truck is becoming a tough competitor to the upcoming F-150 Lightning, Hummer EV and Cybertruk. The Rivian R1T uses a dual motor layout with a Standard Battery Pack (260 mile EPA range).
The Big Plan gives you 320 miles of range, but you have to add $6,000 to get it. The Max plan promises over 400 miles of range for an additional $16,000.
Since we used the updated Rivian configurator, we managed to set a fully loaded R1T to $116,505. Furthermore, the R1S is now configurable to $110,680. At launch, the R1T and R1S started at $67,500 and $70,000, respectively. However, back then both vehicles came standard with the Big Package and Quad-Motor AWD. Today, the Quad-Motor, Large Pack R1T will set you back $87,000 before the equivalent R1S temporary option costs $92,000.
