Video: Take a Tour of a Rivian R1T Electric Camper Truck

These days, #vanlife might be one thing, but what about #electrictrucklife? All jokes aside, with all the recent hype about Rivian’s new electric pickup truck, it’s about time we see someone convert the truck into a sick camper rig. Rivian showed up at Overland Expo West in Flagstaff, Arizona with a tricked-out R1T electric truck complete with an electric stove, pop-up tent, and plenty of room for all the toys.

Take a tour of the truck, which Rivian bills as a fully-capable off-road vehicle. A battery-powered backcountry vehicle? Rivian claims the 180kWh battery can support the electric kitchen for weeks without a charge. The truck can produce 750 horsepower from its four electric motors, which should provide plenty of get-up-and-go for the 400-mile range. It can also wade through up to three feet of water. Too bad you can’t buy one until later this year.

Switzerland is one of the deadliest places on the planet when it comes to avalanches. Many of the country’s villages and roads lie beneath massive slide paths, and when it snows, big white walls of snow start moving. These days, those dangers are elevated thanks to a warming climate, and the team of scientists and avalanche forecasters at the WSL institute for Snow and Avalanche Research are figuring out how and why it affects mountain communities.
