Rivian's charging network will balled the "Rivian Adventure Network" according to a new report from Electrek.

At the beginning Rivian's goal will be to have charging stations at off-roading pit stops, national parks, and RV parks, tapping into the "adventure" aspect of the company. In fact Rivian plans to have one of their first chargers in Moab, Utah.

Electrek says that Rivian is aiming for its DC charging stations to deliver up to 200kW, with each charger charging two vehicles at once.

In order to make that happen Rivian has started hiring people that worked on Tesla's Supercharger network. Back in March Rivian hired Carrington Bradley as senior manager of charging deployment. He had been working at Tesla for almost seven years and most recently, he was managing charging programs at the company.

Rivian also hired Sara Eslinger as “senior product manager, charging infrastructure at Rivian.” Eslinger worked at Lyft where she was leading electric vehicle deployment. Before Lyft, she worked for more than six years at Tesla in charging infrastructure.

Rivian has also hired Kit Ahuja as Director of Rivian Adventure Network, and he was formerly a manager at Tesla. He more recently worked at Enel X, another EV charging company.

Has anyone seen an update on this?

I assume that if they are going to have this live any time soon they would already be producing contractors to do the work.
