    When Did You Pre-Order Your Rivian?

    I’ve been on the fence. I have it narrowed down between the R1S and the 2022 Volvo XC90 Recharge. I’m not in a hurry...late 2021 or into 2022 is good.

    When Did You Pre-Order Your Rivian?

    I'm wondering, for those just placing deposits now on the R1S, when they can expect delivery? Perhaps mid to late 2022?

    Revealing job postings - Rivian Insurance Agency and Global Collision Repair Program

    I’m not a fan of telematics insurance, based on driving behavior, but like the idea of using it based on usage...miles driven. My carrier gives an option to have a black box for behavior or usage, which I like, because I only drive 7-10K miles/year. I like the idea of a subscription plan...

    If they plan to have their own insurance, perhaps a subscription plan will be offered, in addition to a purchase or lease. That’s one piece I’ve been waiting to hear.

    Lincoln's Aviator - the SUV the R1S needs to Beat?

    I agree with DucRider. At this point in my life, I won’t consider any vehicle other than a BEV. I’m very impressed with the Aviator. I was hoping the Rivian/Lincoln affiliation was going to produce an electric Aviator type vehicle. Since that isn’t going to happen, I’m debating between the R1S...

    I’d like to add to Mark‘s list, # 5, re: financing. RJ mentioned the possibility of a subscription model. This would be very attractive, and could be the deciding factor for me.

    I sent an email to Rivian a few days ago, asking if they will have subscriptions as an option. The person responding, said they were discussing it internally, but for the now, the only options will be purchase or lease.

    Ford cancels Lincoln electric vehicle program with Rivian

    Mark- You make some very good points! You’ve given me some ideas to ponder and consider. If I were to guess, I’d think you’re a secret Rivian salesperson. If not, you should consider applying for a job. You’re good! Believe me, I’d much rather support Rivian than Volvo. I really need to...

    Ford cancels Lincoln electric vehicle program with Rivian

    Yes, Volvo is developing a new XC90 BEV to be available in 2022. I really like the concept of the R1S and their skateboard platform. However, Rivian is marketing to the adventurous demographic. I’m in that group looking for the luxurious, like the Lincoln Aviator. I was looking forward to the...

    Ford cancels Lincoln electric vehicle program with Rivian

    I’m a huge fan of R.J. and what he’s doing. He has so many bright, talented people with him, I‘m confident they will be able to produce world class vehicles. I was really counting on the Rivian based Lincoln as my first choice for my first EV. I guess I’ll move on to Plan B. . . the Volvo XC90...

    I’m very interested in what Rivian is doing with Lincoln. I’m one of those older guys who’s looking for an EV, like the R1S, but has the creature comforts of, say, the new Lincoln Aviator. Also waiting to see what Volvo will do with the XC90 as a BEV.
