    Rivian to attend Overland Expo in Flagstaff, AZ

    No I live nearby and can go any day or multiple days. I just failed to look at the expo schedule to see that they only have Rivian demos scheduled for Sat/Sun when I paid for a Friday day pass. Looks like they will still be there, and I can always come back again the next day for the demo, just...

    Rivian to attend Overland Expo in Flagstaff, AZ

    Dang, I bought a pass for Friday and now I see they might not be there or might not have any demos that day. I assumed that I could see the vehicle and demos on any day, now I looked at the “exhibitor demo” schedule for the show and I see Rivian demos scheduled for Saturday and Sunday but not...

    LIVE from Rivian's NY Auto Show Preview Event! (Q&A and R1T / R1S Hands-On)

    UPDATE: the videos from the NY Auto Show tell me that the rear seats will very likely not fold. They demo hopping into the rear seats and showing that they have plenty of room, and that there are storage drawers under the sets. If they folded in any way they would have demo’ed that. What I like...

    Rivian Servicing & Repairs?

    I will be 74. I used to think that was old. Now I am thinking, why not, I bet this thing will run rings around my Jeep Rubicon, and be a decent road trip machine besides. And it might be better at avoiding trees along the trail than I am.

    LIVE from Rivian's NY Auto Show Preview Event! (Q&A and R1T / R1S Hands-On)

    Great photos. Can’t tell, do the rear seats of the R1T fold down, or just the R1S? I would like to occasionally carry gear in the back seat area, wonder what my options are that will leave the seats protected somwhat.

    Autonomous Driving Feature Pricing

    Yes I saw that, and am focusing on the part BEFORE that last sentence about the great “beyond”. Note that this still leaves it ambiguous as to whether level 3 autonomy will be included in that $69k base price (and the longer-range model base model pricing). Could mean that iit is included, or...

    Autonomous Driving Feature Pricing

    It looks like the base models will come with the basic hardware necessary for autonomous driving: cameras and sensors. I am still wondering whether there will be additional price points for enabling autonomy with various feature levels. I would hope that 100% of the hardware will be present in...

    Revealed: Rivian Patent For Auxiliary Battery Module To Achieve 400+ Miles Range

    Yeah, I think it is pretty clear the 185kwh pack will mean 400-mile range without any additional battery packs, and that this future option for R1T might extend it to 500, or more likely hold it at 400 miles when you are towing a big travel trailer, in which case you don’t need much storage in...

    R1T $69,000 starting price - opinions

    What is going to be interesting to me is the choice between the long-range and mid-range battery pack versions. With the $70k price for short-range battery, lets say for example that the mid-range version will start at $80k and the long-range at $90k. From what I can gather, there will be a...

    Revealed: Rivian Patent For Auxiliary Battery Module To Achieve 400+ Miles Range

    AHA, I think you have found a valid use case. If you are towing a big (and expensive) travel trailer on a long trip, it might be worth it to install this giant thing in the bed for the trip and remove it afterward. Bed reduction wouldn’t matter much because all your stuff is in the travel...

    Introductions! Drop in and say hello new and old members...

    I put a deposit down on an R1T in December after I read the news from the LA auto show. I have a Tesla Model S that I am very happy with. The other car in my garage is a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, which I like a lot for utility purposes and bouncing around rocky back roads in northern Arizona, but...

    Revealed: Rivian Patent For Auxiliary Battery Module To Achieve 400+ Miles Range

    My main concern is whether this add-on option will be required to reach the 400 mile range. I have always been assuming that the vehicle will be rated at 400 mile range with the 185khw pack and no other add-one. I hope that is still true. I second the concerns about this being more...
