Rivian Announces “Connect+” Premium Subscription Service

Rivian has announced Connect+, a new premium subscription service coming to Rivian vehicles in 2024.

“Our new Connect+ subscription unlocks the full potential of our connected vehicle. Connect+ supports streaming video through Google Cast and provides access to more than 3,000 apps, seamlessly bringing your favorite entertainment right into your R1’s center display from your iPhone or Android™ phone or tablet.

For Connect+, Rivian also worked closely with the Apple Music team to deeply integrate this feature into Rivian’s software platform. Rivian’s Connect+ gives customers access to Apple Music’s catalog of over 100 million songs and 30,000 playlists, ad-free. With Rivian Premium Audio, they can also hear sound all around with Apple Music’s Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos.”

All Rivian vehicles will come standard with the following features:

  • Live navigation
  • Over-the-Air updates
  • Remote vehicle commands
  • Phone as a key
  • Alexa basic (for vehicle commands)
  • Tethering (connecting the vehicle to an external WiFi network or phone hotspot)

With Connect+, you’ll unlock the following premium features:

  • In-vehicle hotspot
  • Satellite Images
  • Alexa Connected commands
  • Music streaming apps like Spotify, Tidal, TuneIn, and Apple Music
  • Google Cast and YouTube
  • Gear Guard Live Cam

Connect+ will be available in vehicles later this summer. At that point, we’ll introduce a two-month trial for all existing owners.  

Connect+ will cost $14.99 per month ($19.99 CAD) or $149.99 per year ($199.99 CAD). You’ll be notified towards the end of your trial and be able to sign up via the Rivian app, in-vehicle infotainment, and your Account Page.
