Some vans offer roadside assistance. While driving on a road, a truck may have a mechanical malfunction, a flat tire, or some other problem. A service agent then comes to fix the problem and, if necessary, tows the vehicle to a service center. However, what if you are driving in the wild, away from the roads and encountering problems? Only one van answers this problem: the all-electric Rivian R1T, with its All-Terrain Assistance plan.
What is the Rivian Off-Road Assistance Plan for the R1T Pickup Truck?
The Rivian Off-Road Assistance plan is included in the New Vehicle Warranty Coverage for the R1T All-Electric Pickup Truck and R1S SUV. This is also one of the many benefits of the Rivian Membership Program. The Rivian Off-Road Assistance plan consists of two main components: Adventure Extraction and Charge Assurance.
- Adventure Extraction: If you get stuck in the wild, whether it’s because you’re stuck, submerged in water, or unable to travel any further, the Adventure Extraction Service will dispatch a recovery vehicle to extract a Rivian R1T truck or an R1S SUV.
- Charge Assurance: If your vehicle runs out of battery, Charge Assurance will provide 24/7 towing services to your home or a nearby charging station, whichever is closer.
Reasons why Rivian Off-Roadside Assistance is such a great benefit
More than any other automaker, Rivian caters to adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts — and the All-Terrain Assistance Plan reflects that. If you’re driving the R1T pickup in the desert, you can have peace of mind that Rivian will help you out if you run into any trouble. If you get stuck, the Adventure Extraction service will get your vehicle moving again.
For even more peace of mind, Rivian offers charging insurance. One of the biggest concerns with electric vehicles is “range anxiety,” or the fear of running out of battery before you can drive home or drive to a charging station to charge your vehicle. Some other car manufacturers offer charging services if your electric vehicle runs out of battery while on the road. However, Rivian is unique among other electric vehicles, including electric pickup trucks, in that it is the only one that provides charging services when your vehicle is off-road, far out in the wild.
Rivian R1T Electric Pickup Truck Off-Road Capabilities
In addition to the off-road assistance plan, the Rivan R1T has impressive off-road capabilities. With its powerful four-motor all-wheel-drive system, the electric pickup delivers smooth torque to each wheel as needed for optimal traction.
The R1T also has adaptive air suspension that allows you to raise and lower the height of the truck. For extreme off-road use, you can increase the R1T to 14.9 inches of ground clearance. In addition, for greater ease of loading your equipment, the truck can be lowered to 7.9 inches.

Plus, the R1T has plenty of useful utility features to make off-road adventures easier. This includes a transmission tunnel, which is a single storage compartment that spans the full width of the van. Other useful utility features include a slide-out camp kitchen, built-in flashlight, and storage frunk.
The Rivian R1T Electric Pickup Truck Off-Road Assistance Plan is a great service for people who enjoy driving off-road for wilderness adventures. With Adventure Extraction and Charge Assurance, you can have peace of mind that Rivian will be there for you if you run into trouble while you’re off the beaten path.
