We are also installing thousands of Rivian Waypoint chargers across the US and Canada. Found at shopping centers, restaurants, hotels, campsites, parks and many other locations, these Level 2 AC chargers deliver up to 25 miles of range every hour for the R1T and R1S, letting you grab extra miles while you’re out having fun.

Over 10,000 Rivian Waypoints are planned across the US and Canada through 2023. Our first locations were announced this week — all 42 Colorado State Parks will have two Rivian Waypoints each, with installation starting in July. More announcements will follow soon.  

You can locate Rivian Waypoints, monitor charge status and get notifications through your in-vehicle navigation and Rivian app.

Our vehicles are also compatible with all CCS networks. For many locations, availability and maximum charge rate will appear on your in-vehicle nav, and you’ll be able to conveniently use the Rivian app to authorize and initiate a charge.

AT HOME

Charging your Rivian at home is really no different from how you typically charge your cell phone. Plug in at the end of the day and wake up charged.

Instead of running down your vehicle towards empty before stopping to refuel, you can top off each night so you have plenty of charge for the next day. If you forget to charge or choose to skip a few days — it’s ok. A daily commute won’t come near the amount of range you’ll have.

At home, the Rivian Wall Charger is the fastest way to charge the R1T and R1S. Delivering up to 25 miles of range every hour, drivers with our 300+ mile Large Pack can charge from near-empty back to full overnight. 

You’ll be able to purchase the Rivian Wall Charger and set up installation when ordering your vehicle. If you finance your vehicle through us, you can also roll in the cost of the Wall Charger. 

When it comes to getting ready, your Rivian Guide can help with everything — from finding the right spot for your charger to coordinating installation. After that, it’s as simple as pulling up and plugging in. The Rivian Wall Charger requires no maintenance, and you can monitor charging in real time through the Rivian app.

The Rivian Wall Charger

  • Up to 25 miles of range per hour of charge
  • 11.5 kW charging speed 
  • WiFi connectivity for OTA updates
  • Weatherproof for indoor or outdoor use
  • 5-year warranty
  • Compatible with other EVs using the J1772 plug

Every Rivian also comes with our Portable Charger stored in the front trunk. It plugs into both a 240-volt outlet — used by many home clothes dryers and commonly found at RV parks — as well as a standard 120-volt wall outlet. 

Whether topping off at home, making a quick stop across town or exploring far and wide, Rivian’s charging solutions are the best way to keep your adventure going.

Our entire charging platform has been designed by Rivian engineers to deliver the fastest, most convenient way to charge your Rivian. 

Through the Rivian app, you can monitor your vehicle’s charge status in real time. If you’re at home and your vehicle isn’t plugged in, we can send a reminder. You can also program your charger to turn on during off-peak hours for lower rates.

On the road, our in-vehicle navigation automatically routes you through any needed charging stops, prioritizing Rivian chargers as well as DC fast chargers from CCS partner networks. Simply enter your destination, our maps will plan charging for you.

  1. @shultzy I have a response from Emily at the Customer Engagement Center. My Wife Lady had some very grounding questions as soon as I started geeking out about this info over the weekend. I punted to the Customer Team via email. The response did have much of the usual we don’t know yet, or we cannot release that information yet, etc. but I figured I’d pass it along to someone in case no one else had thought of this yet.

    I can either post it here or email?!? What’s best?

      1. Subject: Not-so-FAQ

        Based on all the new Charging info released today…

        My Lady who’s truck this shall be (I’m just lucky I get to care for it and drive it)…had a few very solid questions that I hope people much smarter than us have already thought of. 😉

        We live in Washington State, 25 miles north of Seattle.

        We drive up into and through the Cascades several times a year to get to and from our home in Everett to our Property in Tonasket 4-5 hours away.

        It appears there will be some RAN Charging either along HWY 2 or HWY 20, and 97. If that’s the case and with more future 3rd Party stations nicely integrated with the Rivian App, we’re good to go! 🙂

        Question 1. How does the NAV know that a given charger will be available two hours from when we leave at a given location? Also, in some remote areas around the Cascades there is no cell signal so how will the NAV function and have Live Charging Info for RAN or 3rd Party stations?

        Question 2. If the L2 Waypoints are open to everyone at a big outdoor/public area and people are out for the day…even with Multiple Chargers at a given site if it’s meant to have no limit so people can fill up while they’re out for their adventure for a few hours, half-day, or full day, how is that fair to anyone? How will that be handled?

        Thanks and stay awesome!!

        Hello Ryan,

        Thank you for reaching out to the Customer Engagement Center. We are happy to be here to help you along your journey with Rivian. You asked some fantastic questions and I will do my best to assist you! I double checked our database and I do not currently see details on how we plan to handle over-use of our waypoints in public locations. I know that this is something that our teams would have considered but they may not have a plan finalized just yet. I have requested that someone look into this so that we can get these details available!

        As for the NAV, our technology will allow for the vehicles navigation system to be able to know where all of the compatible chargers are located. On the road, our in-vehicle navigation automatically routes you through any needed charging stops, prioritizing Rivian chargers as well as DC fast chargers from our CCS partner networks. Simply enter your destination, our maps will plan charging for you.

        For many locations, availability and maximum charge rate will appear on your in-vehicle NAV, and you’ll be able to conveniently use the Rivian app to authorize and initiate a charge. If you happen to pass through an area where there is little to no cell service, I know that this is something that our teams have considered. I cannot speak to this 100% as we do not have details on what options you will have in that scenario. I have reached out to our teams for more information on this.

        Thank you very much for your questions. I hope to get answers to your questions soon. As we are quickly reaching the start of production, more product information will be available every week leading up to launch.

        If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. We are here to help! Stay adventurous out there and be safe!

        Your fellow adventurer,

      2. I just had another thought… Google/Apple/Waze have always been limited to on-road maps. I wonder if any safe-ish publicly accessible offroad trails can be used as bypasses or shortcuts and/or in areas where the road is blocked. Question inspired by the RJ Driving Off-road Map visual, granted there was no trail/NAV loaded…but would be a huge game changer!

        Hmmm…

        1. Per Emma in Chat when I proposed the following scenario –

          “You’re stuck on a two-lane mountain road backed up for miles in both directions…will the NAV find a local safe-ish public off-road access road or area to use as a bypass?”

          Emma – “It looks like our teams are still finalizing some data about our NAV. We look forward to sharing more details on how all of that will work, closer to the start of production. I am sorry I cannot provide more at this time, but production is just around the corner!”

          Meh. 😉
