Rivian To Install More Than 13,500 Chargers By 2023

Rivian’s plans for charging stations geared towards its customers will also be accessible for all others


  • They will be installed in the US and Canada.

  • 3,500 DC fast chargers are on the way at more than 600 locations.


Rivian is only a few months away from putting its first R1T and R1S electric trucks in the hands of its customers, and the excitement is palpable. To go along with vehicle production, Rivian is rolling out more than 13,500 chargers in the US and Canada.

Branded charging stations is a great way to promote said brand and create something of an experience for customers. Tesla’s done this since the onset and its stations act as advert signs to all those who drive by them. Rivian will follow Tesla’s example and set up 3,500 DC fast chargers to start and another 10,000 chargers will be installed by 2023.

The DC fast chargers, as part of the Rivian Adventure Network, were announced late last year. The new Waypoint L2 chargers, over 10,000 of them, will be spread across highways, and main roads, often by cafes and shops, as reported by Yahoo Finance. Rivian’s approach however will enable both owners and other EV owners to charge up at their stations in both countries.

Rivian Will Build A Charging Network Off The Beaten Path

Rivian is considering the possibility of setting up an initial public offering this September based on a $50 billion evaluation.
