Although the launch of Rivian’s R1T electric pickup is looming ever closer, the Amazon-backed automaker has announced that it must once again postpone its deliveries, pushing things back from June to July due to a COVID-related production delay. And while reservation holders have already had to wait nearly a year longer than they’d hoped, the good news is that Rivian just dropped some new accessories to make the anticipation a bit more bearable.
They’re calling it ‘Rivian Adventure Gear,’ and it marks the first collection of off-road equipment available within the R1T and R1S configurators. In practice, this means that buyers will be able to choose from a variety of optional add-ons, including a rooftop tent for camping, some cargo crossbars for hauling bikes and kayaks, as well as a gear tunnel shuttle for some cleverly integrated storage. Should you happen to spec your Rivian with a ‘Camp Kitchen,’ you’ll now receive a 30-piece Snow Peak Kitchen Set complete with a variety of pots, pans, silverware, cups, and cooking utensils. And the thing is — this is just the first of many Adventure Gear releases, as Rivian plans on updating its offerings throughout the year. Click the link below to learn more.
