This page shows every update released by Rivian where DC Fast Charging was featured or mentioned. The latest update is shown first.
With EVgo Autocharge+ support, you can start charging your vehicle by plugging into a DC fast charger from EVgo. The EVgo network automatically detects your vehicle and associates its charging with your EVgo account. To enroll in Autocharge+ in the EVgo app, go to Vehicle Autocharge+, and follow the on-screen instructions.
Improved DC fast charging speed, by up to 2.5 minutes, at high battery temperatures. Thanks to Kyle, Out of Spec, for your videos!
Reduced battery cooling noise during DC fast charging, at high battery temperatures.
Fixed a rare issue that caused DC charging to fail until you restarted the vehicle.
Addressed a rare case where Direct Current Fast Charger (DCFC) was slowed due to insufficient battery cooling.
Reduced fan cooling noise and duration after Direct Current Fast Charger (DCFC) charge sessions in moderate ambient temperature
We have improved DC fast charging performance and battery preconditioning when using trip planner. In ideal conditions, you may experience up to a 20% improvement in miles added per minute.
Battery preconditioning strives to minimize DC fast charging time and achieving optimal charging performance by bringing the battery to ideal temperatures while navigating to a DC fast charger. Preconditioning will automatically start when using the Navigation app and routing to a DC fast charger. The system cools or heats based on battery temperature. The time spent preconditioning can vary based on the advertised power of the charger you’re navigating to, and the state of charge with which you may arrive at the DC fast charger.
Improved regenerative braking performance after DC fast charging sessions
Addressed inaccurate range displayed in rare cases, after DC fast charging
We enabled the support of 500 A charging.
Improved DC fast charging curve and behavior in low temperatures
