Rivian Is Bringing Back Its Strangest (And Coolest) Accessory, With A Few New Upgrades

Now, the results of that reworking have been revealed, and though it could be overshadowed by the R2 electric SUV debut and the tease of the upcoming R3 and R3X electric crossovers, the new Rivian Travel Kitchen still deserves some attention. For a start, it’s no longer designed to slot into the Gear Tunnel, which means it’ll be compatible with more than just the R1T.

Instead, the Travel Kitchen attaches to the back of Rivian’s models. It’ll also work with the new Rivian Cargo Box. With that storage, the portable kitchen can be added to a Cooler and a Water Tank, the automaker says, along with a special branded cookware set.

The new mounting system makes a lot of sense, as one body style conspicuous by its absence in Rivian’s R2 and R3 series announcements was a smaller pickup. There’s no R2T or R3T on the cards, it seems, with Rivian sticking with SUV and crossover form factors for now.
