    Imagine if he would have saw the 180 degree tailgate. It would have been so, so sick or a banger or whatever the kids use now. That charge door is still an abomination. God, I hope it doesn't break as much as it looks like it will. Some high level 'get off my lawn' energy from me today. Sigh.

    My Q&A with Rivian reps at Venice Hub

    Wait, is this a thing? I don't recall seeing this at all. No offence to Olivia or Mark, but this is really, really hard to believe based on who has been contacted and tentatively slotted for delivery. Not Brice, I really appreciate the trip down and reporting on it. You're doing yeoman's work...

    How to buy Rivian Pre-IPO stocks.

    I spoke to my financial advisor about this. He believes that there will be some sort of notification or public posting with details on how to participate. You will likely have to work with a firm associated with the IPO to purchase shares, but should be able to transfer them to your own...

    Has anyone on this forum received a confirmed delivery date?

    My understanding is that only people affiliated with Rivian are getting deliveries at this time. The luckiest of us peons can attend a first mile event or go to the single solitary showroom experience center, but that's about it.

    Has anyone on this forum received a confirmed delivery date?

    I fell like the whole thing here lately with snooping on people who post pictures of recently delivered R1T's is unsurprisingly caused by the opaque nature of the deliveries to date and people attempting to determine progress when no other source of information is provided. Most of it is...

    Guide Contacts & Counting by Thanksgiving?? Can they do it??

    For the record, the exact quote from RJ's email on July 16th was: He committed to nothing beyond what was mentioned in there. There was absolutely nothing about how they were going to be better or provide additional information. Most of us assumed, you know, that with them realizing their...

    Did Rivian get 'Bezos'd'?

    My description of him would have much more malice in it then out-of-touch Billionaire. I absolutely detest the man despite the fact that my business has profited immensely from it's Amazon affiliation and that he has objectively made my life more convenient. I've actually considered cancelling...

    Article: Rivian founder ran a 12-year marathon to build the first electric pickup [Autoblog]

    That's my take away as well. Knowing the 'right people' is sometimes more important than having the right idea.

    Has anyone on this forum received a confirmed delivery date?

    It was also asked in the Guide thread if any additional folks have been contacted. So far, no one has chimed in. :(

    Driver+ Limitations

    The bold part being the key. Tesla AP1 LKAS / ACC is excellent. The Honda 'equivalent' abomination is so bad that it sours users on the technology altogether. The range is very, very wide unfortunately. If they can deliver AP1 equivalent LKAS / ACC on most roads, and add in the lane changing &...

    DC Bi-directional charging for CCS vehicles

    You keep on mentioning that it's 'just software' and it's 'in the specification' but you don't seem to realize that it's a hell of a lot more complicated than that. There may be incompatibilities, risks, costs, or economics involved that significantly delay (potentially for years) or make V2H...

    DC Bi-directional charging for CCS vehicles

    Because they have never talked about something before killing it. Nothing is ever for sure until it's deployed. Never ever buy something on the promise of future functionality. I'll just leave this here...

    DC Bi-directional charging for CCS vehicles

    We don't at all know this for certain. There is a real possibility of this, but there is no documented commitment to making this happen. As close as it's been is a Q&A session video where RJ noted they were 'going to look into it' or it was a 'definite possibility' or something similar. I can't...

    What do you get for $67,500? Less and less, it appears.
