Video: Rivian’s R1T electric pickup has a feature foodies will love

You need to see this thing to believe it!

Originally Published: 

The Rivian R1T is a new electric pickup truck from the Tesla competitor arriving later this year. It starts at $67,500 and promises a 300-mile range.

The R1T is designed to explore the great outdoors, and it includes a large number of add-ons to make camping in the wilderness a much... nicer experience.

One of them is the Camp Kitchen.

The Camp Kitchen is a $5,000 add-on to the R1T, and it includes a 1,440-watt two-burner induction cooktop, a sink, and plenty of prep space.

It slides out from the hidden Gear Tunnel in the side of the truck.

The kit includes a 30-piece kitchen set from Snow Peak, a Japanese purveyor of high-end outdoor gear and apparel. In particular, Snow Peak is known for its ultralight titanium products.

It includes plates, bowls, cooking tools, utensils, a griddle, and even a coffee pot.

And it all fits into custom-molded insets for easy storage and, crucially, rattle-free operation.

Here’s the full gear list:

Nylon Spatula

Bamboo Spatula

Pitts BBQ Tongs

Nylon Ladle

Large and medium knives

Can opener and peeler

Titanium cutlery set with knives, forks, and spoons


Stacking mugs

water kettle

Charcuterie / Cutting board

Coffee drip

Coffee grinder

There are other outdoorsy add-ons available too, including this $2,650 three-person tent from Yakima that sits on crossbars over the pickup bed.

It folds down for transport but is ready to go when you hit the campsite.

Between truck, kitchen, and tent, you have a fully-equipped zero-emissions glamping machine.

The Rivian R1T will start shipping later this year, and you can pre-order one now on Rivian’s website.
