Rivian is building a nationwide network of DC fast chargers called the Rivian Adventure Network that will put charging stations along popular routes and in more remote off-road destinations. The chargers will serve the company’s R1S and R1T SUV and pickup.

The first Rivian Adventure Network site opened in Salida, Colorado, on June 27 with four Level 3 chargers, including a pull-through charger to accommodate vehicles towing trailers. It was immediately followed by the second and third Adventure Network sites in Inyokern and Bishop, both in California, on June 28 and 29. These chargers can add up to 140 miles of range in just 20 minutes, according to Rivian.

The best part about these sites is that they will include Level 2 Rivian Waypoint chargers, which can be used by any EV. Not needing to be a Rivian owner to use these facilities means you can pull up in your Ford Lightning loaded down with your Polaris Ranger Kinetic or Volcon Stag and charge up for some off-road adventures and the drive to your next destination. With plans for more than 3,500 fast chargers at more than 600 sites across the US and Canada, the Rivian Adventure Network is a step toward strengthened EV infrastructure.
