    Driver+ Limitations

    This is a big question for me. ACC with a competent LKAS that has no geographical restrictions is something I use and want to keep using. Everyone else seems to offer this, so hopefully it’s not locked away in Rivian vehicles.

    Latest Time Estimate for Launch Edition - via chat with Rivian 9/21/21

    Everyone has made mistakes — including me. What is not productive is failing to take accountability and instead blaming technology and refusing to improve.

    Latest Time Estimate for Launch Edition - via chat with Rivian 9/21/21

    TIL people want to not pay attention when driving. Knowing your speed is one of the most basic requirements. Adaptive Cruise Control isn’t holding you back unless you’re already unaware of your surroundings and exercising poor driving judgement.

    Rivian First Mile R1T Preview appointment confirmation

    I feel so conflicted. No, I have to… SOON Ugh, I hate myself.

    Max output from the 110v plugs in the bed

    We do, but they tend to be only 1200-1500W so they take a bit longer than models in countries with 240V kettles.

    Rivian First Mile R1T Preview appointment confirmation

    As much as I’d love an “overnight” test drive, I haven’t heard any plans for offering that. They said they’ll do at-home test drives, but they’re only 20-30 minutes.

    If only God had given us another leg so we could "cover" the brake in those situations. Hmm, I guess maybe evolution will eventually get the number of lower limbs to match the number of pedals.

    Yep. It’s just a button I can press and it disables both the window controls AND prevents the rear doors from being opened from the inside.

    I get where you’re coming from, and I tend to agree that choice/options are generally preferred…. But in the absence of that choice, Adaptive Cruise Control does provide some relief and allow you to effectively ”go with the flow” without holding the skinny pedal.

    One-Pedal Driving and Regen Paddles??

    My reading of the manual leaves me with the impression that one-pedal-driving WILL be supported in the optional/configurable high regen mode. I am a bit sad to see the paddles go…. It’d be nice to be able to easily and quickly switch regen up/down/off as I drive.

    TFL snubbed by Rivian: video

    Indeed. Although, to play devils advocate, I think it’s comical that Apple hasn’t added a Touch ID sensor to the iPhone 13 (in addition to keeping Face ID). They obviously have the technology, since they put a Touch ID sensor in the power button on the iPad Air. That would address everyone’s...

    I think it’s funny to see people who don’t want their cheese to be moved use the term “game changer”.

    Off-roading Newb Question

    Keep a KLR 650 in the bed of your R1T and that isn’t a problem.

    My current vehicle lets me toggle the child locks electronically (button on drivers door). I was surprised Rivian didn’t just put it in the center screen.

    RJ: Some Early Rivian Deliveries Go To Earliest Company Employees!

    I don’t begrudge them. I’m happy for them. I’m simply saying I consider their deliveries to not meet my threshold for what I expected: At least one delivery to a customer without employment/funding ties. There are still several days left in September, so Rivian may still meet/exceed my...

    Max output from the 110v plugs in the bed

    Actually, we do know, now, since the Owners Manual is posted on Rivian.com. They 120V outlets are limited to 1500W. The manual also states that there are two 12V batteries between the frunk and cab. I don’t recall it specifying the chemistry type. I would assume they are at least AGM, but...

    RJ: Some Early Rivian Deliveries Go To Earliest Company Employees!

    I’m fine with employees getting early deliveries, but I don’t consider these to be production deliveries. When RJ confirmed deliveries would begin in September I interpreted that to mean to actual paying customers without employment/funding links to Rivian.

    That's a common glyph. Volvo uses it, too. I've heard it referred to as "turtle mode".

    Ruthless? They have published the most flattering of puff pieces, in the past. The recent Chevy launch or the 2021 Tundra are two examples that come to mind.
