The Camp Kitchen, one of the Rivian R1T’s most distinctive features, has been discontinued. A $5,000 option, the Camp Kitchen came with a two-burner induction cooktop, removable kitchen sink, multiple storage drawers, and a 4-gallon water tank.
Rivian told reservation holders that it was temporarily halting production of the camp kitchen so it could be redesigned. In an email to customers who specified the camp kitchen, Rivian pointed out that the redesign might not be done in time for their delivery. Although the statement did not explain why the kitchen was being redesigned, several flaws were presumably found.
The Rivian R1T currently starts at $73,000 while the SUV R1S amounts to $78,000. Either way, it’s for the twin-motor configuration with the standard battery (260-mile EPA range). The large pack gives you 320 miles of range and is a $6,000 option. Meanwhile, the Max Pack promises over 400 miles of range but will cost you an additional $16,000. For now, the Max Pack is only available on the R1T.
Since our run through the updated Rivian configurator, we manage to spec a fully loaded R1T at $116,505. Additionally, an R1S can now be configured at $110,680. At launch, the R1T and R1S started at $67,500 and $70,000 respectively. However, at the time, both vehicles came standard with the Large Pack and Quad-Motor AWD. Today, a Quad-Motor, Large Pack R1T will set you back $87,000 before options, while the equivalent R1S costs $92,000.
