The letter and print are a nice gesture of gratitude, but I would prefer they save as much cash as they can and focus on getting the cars to us on-time and on-quality.
A nice surprise would have been the option to include a factory tour at delivery or a simple personalized metal plaque bolted...
Thank you for reminding me that it was Atlis that is incorporating the front gate feature. I could not remember which company did that, but I knew it wasn't Rivian.
A must-have feature, assuming it would pass all necessary testing.
Both short roof and tall roof designs look very cool to me. Like someone said, the tall roof is very Rover-like. That's not a bad thing to me.
Maybe the taller roof model will be a new model for 2024? The new R2S? :fist bump:
I love the front end design. It definitely speaks Land Rover and Jeep. The stadium lights are a take from Jeep's 7 slot grille and the overall boxy face reminds me of the older Land Rover Discovery. Brilliant.
I'm voting that RJ is a pragmatic guy and would not disclose anything in public that he did not have data to back up his words.
If he says late 2020 for the first Rivians, I tend to believe him right now given the work he's done over the last 9 years.
That said, manufacturing a car is a hard...
I love the outdoor marketing angle Rivian has taken with their vehicles. It reminds me of Jeep, which I have a soft spot for (owned a Wrangler TJ over 20 years ago). That said who plans to heavily take their vehicle off road like their videos portray?
I preordered the R1S. Need to carry little ones and their stuff. The pass thru compartment looks cool for baby strollers and such, but I like having the option of a 3rd row if I need it. I figure if I need an open bed to carry stuff home from HD, I'll borrow a truck from work.
