Rivian now offers a wall charger and $2,000 install credit with EV truck purchases

Rivian is sweetening the pot just ahead of the Tesla Cybertruck launch by and a $2,000 installation credit when you buy an electric pickup. This deal’s and doesn’t apply to the company’s R1S SUV. The Home Charging Bundle, as it’s called, will be in effect until the end of the year.

Here’s how it works. The wall charger ships a few days after ordering the truck, saving you around $800, and the purchase automatically provides a credit with Rivian’s installation partner Qmerit. Just contact Qmerit to set up an installation and it should be smooth sailing from there. According to the installation company, $800 to $2,000, plus a $150 deposit to schedule a visit. In other words, Rivian’s deal should essentially make this free. It’s also worth noting that the $3,750 tax credit.

This enticing offer comes just ahead of scheduled Tesla Cybertruck deliveries, Tesla’s experienced its fair share of controversy regarding the stainless steel dystopian wonder. The company originally that would fine Cybertruck buyers $50,000 if they attempted to resell the vehicle too soon, after public outcry. It’s certainly been a long, strange trip since the truck-ish vehicle was announced back in 2019.

Of course, Rivian has had its own issues recently. The company instituted two, yes two, in less than a month. It’s also gone through which is not typically a good sign. It’s not all bad news, however, as Rivian is in Georgia.
