Rivian becomes latest US automaker to adopt Tesla’s EV charging system

Rivian has followed Ford and GM in hooking up with EV charging trendsetter Tesla. Rivian drivers will have access to Tesla’s Supercharger network across the US and Canada.

The company will also continue to expand its own Rivian Adventure Network, which will comprise some 3,500 chargers at 600 sites along routes and highways popular with the outdoorsy set.

Rivian says an adapter will be available to enable Rivian’s R1T and R1S to charge on the Supercharger network as early as spring 2024. Rivian will incorporate Tesla’s NACS charge ports as standard in future R1 vehicles starting in 2025, as well as in its upcoming R2 platform.

“The adoption of the North American Charging Standard will enable our existing and future customers to leverage Tesla’s expansive Supercharger network while we continue to build out our Rivian Adventure Network,” said RJ Scaringe, founder and CEO of Rivian. “We look forward to continuing to find new ways to accelerate EV adoption.”
