Rivian To Start Its Own Charging Network To Other EVs

Recently, Tesla’s Supercharger network has garnered significant attention for its decision to open up to electric vehicles (EVs) from other brands. Now, Rivian, a notable player in the EV market, has followed suit.

Rivian operates its own charging infrastructure, known as the Rivian Adventure Network, which currently spans 67 locations across the United States, housing a total of 400 fast chargers.

Historically, these charging stations have been exclusively available to Rivian EV owners. However, a significant shift is on the horizon. Rivian has announced plans, outlined in its latest shareholder letter, to open up its charging network to EVs beyond its own brand starting in the latter half of this year.

Rivian takes pride in the reliability of its chargers, citing an impressive average uptime of 97% during the fourth quarter of 2023. Notably, Rivian handles the entire process of charger development, design, and manufacturing in-house, underlining its commitment to quality and innovation.

In a move aimed at enhancing accessibility for its customers, Rivian has further revealed plans to grant its EV owners access to Tesla’s extensive Supercharger network, which boasts over 12,000 charging stations across the US, commencing in 2025.

To facilitate this transition, Rivian will provide complimentary NACS adapters to its vehicle owners ahead of the official integration.

Notably, the forthcoming Rivian R2 model, set to debut on March 7, is anticipated to come equipped with the NACS connector as a standard feature, streamlining the charging process for Rivian drivers.
