Rivian Membership Plan To Offer Free Charging, LTE Connectivity

• by Ben O Hare

Following the commencement of production last week, Rivian has announced their own membership program for R1T and R1S owners. The program will grant owners free access to Rivian's Adventure Network and Waypoint chargers, as well as unlimited 4G LTE connectivity. Although Rivian is yet to build a single operating public charger, they promise over 10,000 will be available by the end of 2023. Impressively, the Rivian Adventure Network and Waypoint chargers will be powered completely by renewable energy. This will be done via partnerships with certain electricity providers, as opposed to having actual solar panels or wind turbines on-site.

The membership program also includes Rivian off-Roadside Assistance. This service basically ensures you won't get stranded if you run out of battery in a remote location, with a recovery vehicle being dispatched to help you out.
