  1. 🚨 R1T Red Alert: First Retail "Sellable R1T" - First Look Video!

    Is that fresh off the lines or just the fact they recieved some regulatory notice. If the former, I would say concerning for Sept. deliveries as I would have assumed they would already had a cache of Trucks built that are just waiting the final reg. approval for delivery.
  2. Motortrend Videos are gone…did anyone download them?

    I poked around Twitter and I see a response from MT: Long story short, they weren't supposed to go live with the first part of the written story. They'll be back up on their own soon. (from the long haired guy in the videos). So maybe I can put away my pitchforks and Tin foil hat :)
  3. Motortrend Videos are gone…did anyone download them?

    Not looking good for Rivian in my mind. They also definitely adjusted the comments on rear legroom on the last articles. We all know Rivian is very secretive about things and seems to want to be the one's to reveal/release information so they control it. There was something likely in the...
  4. Motor Trend Review: The 2022 Rivian R1T Is the Most Remarkable Pickup We’ve Ever Driven

    No I totally agree, this is irking me too as I've thought this could be a comfortable family road tripping Truck with a lot of fancy tech. But, then the 36.6" of rear legroom was released and many said that sizing isn't comparable... But, looking at all photographic evidence, the rear legroom...
  5. Motor Trend Review: The 2022 Rivian R1T Is the Most Remarkable Pickup We’ve Ever Driven

    Yup, they totally did: Old: New: While wearing my tinfoil hat, I swear Rivian is actively trying to suppress how poor their rear legroom is. Between the two images below, you cannot say rear legroom isn't an issue. Look how F'N close RJ is sitting in that front seat to avoid the back...
  6. Motor Trend Review: The 2022 Rivian R1T Is the Most Remarkable Pickup We’ve Ever Driven

    The review seems pretty clear to me that the rear seats are not comfortable themselves, and they said Rivian has already redesigned them for the production model.. But, nothing can be done with the "cramped" aspect of the review. The rear legroom is just 36.6 inches which many would not...
  7. What would you do? Get LE version (300+) or wait for MaxPack (400+)?

    Yes we know the EPA range which is a mix of city and fairly slow highway speeds. We really don't know how the truck behaves at highway speeds like 65 to 80mph. There no other EV at this size on the highway to see how much more battery drain it is going get when actually driving at more...
  8. What would you do? Get LE version (300+) or wait for MaxPack (400+)?

    Unless you are driving off road solely. Rebelle rally isn't a reasonable indicator of range :) In the q&a with RJ, he kind of said the trucks efficiency in passing.... He said 2to3 miles per kWh. That would be better than I would expect. However an EV this size is still an unknown, the public...
  9. F-150 Lighting Impressions from Sandy Munro

    But, this is basically what Ford and GM did -- they didn't let them drive them, but they got ridealongs, and they let them do a an indepth walkaround.... Rivian looks almost like the are hiding something when they've effectively been close to a production car for 2+ years by now. Long Way up...
  10. F150 Lightning Reservations Reach 120K!

    I'm one of many with pre-orders for CyberTruck, F150 and Rivian. And, if I get one -- it'd likely be the F150. Rivian was my first "love" -- but, interest has waned over time as I can buy in much cheaper for the F150 if I wanted to, and just the Rivian R1T interior space (dimensions) was...
  11. Front Leg and Headroom

    Rivian was never going to have as much space as the F150. But, yes -- the numbers are disappointing. Only thing to do is what for actual hands-on, which seems like maybe August? If they are true to their numbers, go look at the Ford maverick walkthroughs, The rivian is only slightly bigger...
  12. INTERIOR feature / details just posted at Rivian.com

    I personally don't care if they are delayed or not. What I think is a bit odd is that this Truck has been ~95% complete for at least 2 years and yet we can't get a decent basic walk around. The best "close-up" view of the R1t is still from April 2019. Ford gave plenty of people access to their...
  13. INTERIOR feature / details just posted at Rivian.com

    I'm 6'4, and and in my cx5 with 39.6 inches of rear legroom, my 5'6 wife cannot sit behind me, unless I sacrifice comfort to not be on her knees. I'll still hold out hope rivian measurements arent telling the whole story.. but the back seat pictures are currently nonexistent with anyone...
  14. INTERIOR feature / details just posted at Rivian.com

    Ok, there likely goes the rivian off the list. Super disappointing, an adventure vehicle only for short people. The rivian is officially comparable in interior space to my tiny egolf.
  15. INTERIOR feature / details just posted at Rivian.com

    UPDate: rivian now says rear legroom is 36 not 38... I am Sad.. Yah, I'm pretty disappointed they didn't manage to get more interior space as someone who is tall and was looking at more space than I currently have for longer road trips with the family. It is more legroom than previously...
  16. Lordstown Motors Has Been Faking Orders, Is Actually 3-4 Years From Production: Research Firm

    They are bad a PR and marketing (and paying bills on time) that is certain, which one reason why they forced out the two top (despite them saying it was just a move from R&D and Production phases). They just got done with an interview and said they currently have enough binding pre-orders and...
  17. Lordstown Motors Has Been Faking Orders, Is Actually 3-4 Years From Production: Research Firm

    Wouldn't jump to conclusions... Everyone seems to lead with a line like "Going out of business"... When it really is "Seeking more funding to scale up production". As they have stated, they are on track with limited capacity this year (~1k units). If they get more funding they'll do 2k and get...
  18. Do I really need the Max Pack?

    Would definitely adjust the reference consumption to match what you get, I looked at it and it only has it at 2.46. That seems low but I personally don't know much about the i-pace. I have no issues with my e-golf estimates.
  19. Do I really need the Max Pack?

    Everyone should use A Better Rout Planner: https://abetterrouteplanner.com/ You can select a lot of factors and it'll take it into account, all Rivian battery sizes and even compute the battery degradation (along with max charge states and speed of drive). This will give you the best bet on...
