    Vote for R1T for LA Auto Show ZEVAS Award

    I'm picking up on a persistent theme that Rivian's doing themselves a favor by laying-low, avoiding the spotlight, etc. Not meaning to ding anyone here but that's an absurd business approach. I know the IPO puts them in the "cone of silence" right now but this turtle in the shell posturing...

    Vote for R1T for LA Auto Show ZEVAS Award

    God forbid that I'd like to see Rivian do BOTH things. I mean they can park at least one, if not more R1T's at the beach in Venice (maybe 20 miles from the show) but cannot take at least one to the LA show for 3 or 4 days? I guarantee they'd get about 10,000% more people to see it and become...

    So Rivian's not participating at the LA show? 🤔

    Per Rivian: plant is running 2 production lines... one for Amazon and another for the R1T. Won't delay the R1T

    with that last comment... I sure hope you followed up with something like "yeah but only to employees it seems. When will real outside customers get deliveries?"

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

    Sort of writing out my inner monologue here.... Do I sincerely want to spend upwards of $85k dollars (maybe more if I can't whittle the options down) purchasing and paying tax on a vehicle from a brand-new automaker? I've followed Rivian rather closely for more than a year so I appreciate the...

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

    I know they won't.... but if Rivian came clean about a powered Tonneau cover snafu, I would happily accept the manual cover without asking for compensation other than GETTING MY TRUCK s0000ner!

    R1T vs Bronco Pics

    Can always go with the Rivian blue and then get it professionally wrapped with protective film. They make kinds with a satin finish, a very slight smokey effect. Seen some photos of new Broncos with this treatment and the paint tone goes from so-so to knockout. Ford Bronco in Antimatter blue...

    First Mile Event National Tour (live Rivian experience) announced!

    You've got to read that in Rivian-ese.... listing the 4 places (or 400 places) and using the sneaky verbiage "beginning this month" is a hard commitment to only "begin" in September In Normal, IL - which they did. The rest can follow this month, next year, a dozen years from now and still it...

    Rivian R1T: Electrifying the Outdoors | Leg 4 of 5: La Sal to Tremonton | MotorTrend

    I'm hoping to see an aftermarket supplier sell a competitor to the shuttle that is cheaper while being better constructed. Some photos I've seen of the slides look cheesy and its seems taller than it needs to be.

    Investor Business Daily Article (20k deliveries in 2021?)

    I mentally kick myself when I remember... Vividly... viewing the R1T upclose at the L.A. autoshow. It was adjacent to the Ford showcase and unfortunately that's what I went to the show to view. I wanted to see the new Ranger and accessories. I did walk around the R1T and examined the...

    Photos and observations from First Mile Event with R1T

    Found this Reddit posting by happen-stance in a Google search for 'Rivian First Mile Event'. No idea who this is but sounds a little jaded at times, elsewhere enthusiastic. Take it for what it's worth: Posted by u/DanITman Another Attendee to the First Mile Event. Feedback First Mile My...

    Investor Business Daily Article (20k deliveries in 2021?)

    might not be the right thread for this comment/question ... but it seems odd that a 2nd & 3rd date for follow-on First Mile Events hasn't happened. Would expect by now that something in Seattle, San Fran or L.A. (or all 3) would be fixed on the calendar by now.

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

    Folks, its going to be some kind of 'bot' email that assigned a Guide's name to your (pending) order. It will be lots of happy-talk and give a commitment about hearing from your Guide real s00000n.
