Charging Rivian Electric Cars

Charging Rivian EVs

Rivian is a California-based electric vehicle manufacturer designing EVs with the 'spirit of adventure'. Their vehicles are suitable for both on and off-road driving and offer an electrified way to drive a highly functional, capable vehicle.

Rivian is relatively new to the electric car market, having released its first fully electric vehicle, the R1T, at the end of 2021. However, their rapid success as a brand and plans to create a network of EV chargers by 2023 has led them to be named as one of TIME magazine's most influential companies of 2022.

Recently, they announced that they would be working with the Mercedes-Benz Group to establish a new factory in Europe, producing larger commercial vehicles for the European market.

If you're thinking of investing in a Rivian vehicle, it will be important to know what type of charging equipment you need to get the most from your EV. Using a high-quality charging set-up will help keep your Rivian's battery in good health and prevent energy waste.

Rivian EV Models

Rivian currently has two EVs on the market. Their offerings differ slightly from other car manufacturers, as they offer three different battery size options per vehicle, so you can pick which will best suit your needs. These include:

● R1T (105 kWh, 135 kWh, or 180 kWh battery pack options)
● R1S (180 kWh)

Rivian EVs Charging Cables

Like most modern EVs, Rivian cars use type 2 charging cables to power their battery packs. It's important to use high-quality charging cables for your Rivian EV to maintain battery health and ensure that your car receives full power without energy loss.

High-quality charging cables will help you charge your Rivian EV with maximum energy and charge efficiency. We stock a variety of UK-manufactured charging cables here at Smartly, including type 2 cables that are compatible with Rivian EVs:

Rivian EV Chargers

Investing in a home-charging point can be a great way to save money and charge your electric vehicle. We offer a range of suitable chargers for Rivian EVs here at Smartly.

Here are just some of the chargers we stock:

You can find the full selection of chargers on our website. We do not recommend three-phase chargers for home usage, as most homes will not have a suitable three-phase power supply to accommodate them.

How Long Does It Take To Charge A Rivian EV?

The amount of time it takes to charge your Rivian EV will largely depend on your charging equipment. Rivian EVs are compatible with public rapid and DC charging, which allows them to charge quickly when on the road.

Rivian EVs are also distinct for their large battery capacity of 180kWh, which compared to competitor vehicles is very large, offering a huge range.

For a Rivian EV with the largest battery pack option of 180kWh, to go from empty to full charge, it will take approximately:

● 86 hours using a 3-pin emergency plug.
● 55.5 hours using a 3.6kW charger.
● 27 hours using a 7kW charger.
● 9.5 hours using a 22kW charger.

The R1T and the R1S are capable of fast public rapid charging. They can reach 20-80% charge in:

● 2.5 hours using a 50kW charger.
● 50 minutes using a 150kW charger.
