    If your battery has cold soaked you’ve got bigger problems, I reckon.

    It’s everything being cold. mittens are for peasants, that’s what the heated steering wheel is for

    Rivian technical nuggets gleaned from EPA application docs

    It’s only money, the bank has lots! smaller one is probably fine, just means more stops. But I drive across Saskatchewan a lot and I treat it like driving through the bad part of town at night. Don’t stop if you don’t have to and don’t slow down 😬😬

    Rivian technical nuggets gleaned from EPA application docs

    Not even a tiny bit. As it sits our primary car(focus RS) has worse range than the R1T “regular” battery. That said, I am getting the max pack, to lengthen the legs some. on a long trip we usually end up stopping every 2-4 hours anyway. So I’m not worried.

    Someone who deliberately pays more money to buy pants with extra holes in them says this vehicle that Is marketed as anything but a work truck should, inexorably, be a work truck. 🤔 I’ve already got a work truck that doesn‘t get used for work things. I wonder if it’s better or worse per that...

    RED CANYON Rivian Club

    I really like it. It matches its namesake. And red rocks in Denver, and Red Rock canyon in Waterton Lakes

    For me cold weather is -30. And most of my long distance driving happens in winter. Will be interesting to see how truckasaurus Rivian does

    It sure would be nice if Rivian had all the sweet sweet B roll and detail shots available on the media section of their website, like other automakers usually do

    $1,075 delivery charge

    I wonder how bad it will be in Canada. The last MINI I bought was the worst I’ve seen, had freight and PDI charges of $2200, and that was in 2014.

    What would you do? Get LE version (300+) or wait for MaxPack (400+)?

    Our last trip out west was to Tofino(at the very cusp of the pandemic, first two weeks of Februar), we were smart enough to stay a couple nights in Nelson on the way out. One of my favourite places to visit, I hadn’t been in winter before.

    Test Drive Invitations are arriving! And First Mile events tab now available

    regionally, Sonoma raceway seems like one of the few good options for a self contained event like this. And I can almost see it from my mother in law’s house 🤣 customer service told me today they’ve got some open to the public stuff coming up in Venice beach. So maybe the LA event is first.

    Rivian swag after preorder

    I placed my preorder in the first week of July 2021, and got the letter and poster at the end of August. it came by regular mail from an address in Kentucky so that’s why it took so long, I suspect. I imagine it will take the same or longer to get to BC as MB

    Changing color after confirming configuration????

    @windrider FWIW with any other car I’ve ever ordered colour could be changed up until it was actually starting production. if you have a chance to get launch green get it. Not like you’ll be able to order another in that colour again.

    BMW, Porsche, etc use mapbox but I agree, it would be nice to see nav by Garmin. 🤣🤣🤣
