Rivian launches its ‘Adventure Network’ in Colorado, California

Rivian recently opened three fast-charging sites in Colorado and California, the first deployments in its nationwide “Rivian Adventure Network.” These Level 3 DC fast-charging sites will initially provide over 200 kilowatts of power, allowing Rivian drivers to add as much as 140 miles of range in just 20 minutes, the company says.

The first Rivian Adventure Network site in Salida, Colorado opened to the public in June with four chargers, including a pull-through charger to accommodate vehicles towing trailers. The site also hosts four “Level 2” Rivian Waypoints chargers, which are available for use by any EV – not just Rivian vehicles – through the Rivian smartphone app. The second and third Adventure Network sites in Inyokern and Bishop, California, also opened in June, and are sites that support frequently visited areas like Yosemite National Park, Sequoia National Forest, Mammoth Lakes and Death Valley National Park.

Rivian says it is matching charging on Rivian Adventure Network and Waypoints chargers with 100% renewable energy on an annual basis. To support this initiative, Rivian is building a portfolio of high-impact renewable projects around the country that balance technology, location and energy solutions, the company says.

Rivian says it will continue opening Rivian Adventure Network sites with an initial goal of 3,500 fast chargers at 600 sites across North America.
