The United States-based electric vehicle manufacturer company; Rivian adopted Tesla's charging standard in June 2023. The company has given in to adding the charging standard of Tesla, allowing its customers to be a part of the most extensive U.S. charging network system. This step by Rivian boosts Tesla's industry standard to the next level. 

Recently, in May 2023, Rivian and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) announced R1S SUV as an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ for 2023. The company is the only one to have a vehicle in the large SUV category to acquire the TOP SAFETY PICK+ award title. With the recent announcement regarding adopting Tesla's charging standard, customers will get around 12,000 Tesla superchargers with adapters in Canada and the United States in 2024. Rivian set up its fast-charging sites in Colorado and California in 2022; the level 3 D.C. fast-charging sites initially provided more than 200 kilowatts of power, resulting in Rivian drivers adding up 140 miles of range in only 20 minutes. Rivian also aims to develop a Tesla-type charging pot standard on vehicles starting in 2025.

Tesla found a profitable deal in charging standards network from selling power to larger electric vehicles like Rivian. Earlier, it was mentioned by Rivian that the company would continue to build more than 3,500 charging stations. Rivian's R1T has reached the highest satisfaction ranking among vehicles in 2023.
