  1. R1T named 1 of 3 finalists for 2022 North American Truck Of The Year

    I certainly expect the R1T to win against that competition. Very different types of trucks, though.
  2. The line looked busy this morning…

    For those debating whether to get the R1T vs the R1S, I went through the same debate over pickup vs SUV several years ago, and decided that I really needed the SUV for hauling family members, dog and long work trips, so got this lightweight aluminum (no rust!) trailer pictured below for about...
  3. Official: Rivian IPO priced at $78 per share (@ $77 billion valuation)!

    Did anyone get an email from Morgan Stanley confirming the number of shares they were buying? I got nothing from them on my shares, but they did email me to confirm that I made a request to transfer funds.
  4. Official: Rivian IPO priced at $78 per share (@ $77 billion valuation)!

    I was able to do my purchase just now. Did 100 shares. My first individual stock purchase ever! I have index funds through my retirement account but this was a new experience!
  5. New Rivian.com Website Launched + Gear Shop!

    Thank you - your eyes are better than mine! Course I am older than 60, is that a good excuse?!
  6. New Rivian.com Website Launched + Gear Shop!

    It's great to see the Gear Shop, but they need to polish it up a bit. You click on the green sweatshirt (overpriced at $70), it says there is a logo, but none shows in the photos. Same on the women's sweatshirt. You click on the compass hat in green color, and a brown color shows instead. No...
  7. Rivian IPO roadshow video(s) & presentation

    I thought the videos were great, especially the beginning and end when RJ was talking about his vision. Made me more convinced of buying 175 shares. I am not at all wealthy, have never even owned any individual stocks (just some mutual funds), but really believe in this company and want to help...
  8. What do you do for a living?

    agriculture professor and manage regenerative ag programs
  9. What would make you drop your preorder?

    The only thing I marked was the 10% price increase, as the R1T is already at the upper limit of what I can afford (don't want to do a loan, just want to pay cash as I'm close to retirement). Related to that would be a change in the policy on the $7500 tax credit. If Congress changes it so that...
  10. Chances of R1S/R1T winning Motor Trend SUVOTY and TOTY 2022?

    Assuming the R1T is eligible, I have to believe it has a great chance of being named Motortrend truck of the year. They sure gushed about it in their reviews! I've read hundreds of Motortrend reviews (and many more from other automotive publications) over the last 25 years, and don't ever...
  11. Did Rivian get 'Bezos'd'?

    I agree with the comments that Bezo and Amazon more generally are likely to carry a lot of weight with Rivian in getting a certain number of vans built. However, I feel the original Bloomberg story that got picked up by other media, saying the vans were higher priority than the personal...
  12. InsideEVs Article : Rivian Focuses On Amazon Delivery Van Over R1T Electric Truck

    I agree with those saying this is an example of really poor reporting. I read the IPO information and I didn't come to that conclusion that vans were prioritized over the passenger vehicles at all! And it's crazy how other outlets just picked up on the Bloomberg story and ran with it, but...
  13. Dear Rivian...R1T WISHLIST BELOW

    Top priority - vehicle to house power so I can take advantage of those huge batteries during a power outage (sounds like it may be coming). Related to that, as at least one other poster commented, more than 1500 watt power from the built-in outlets. Medium priority - tailgate that drops down...
  14. Official Stories: Electrifying the TransAmerica Trail in Rivian R1T

    That's a good video. I have really enjoyed most of the videos that Rivian has put out. I hope they keep cranking more out!
  15. Rivian Improvements Over Your Current Vehicle?

    I look forward to switching to the R1T from my Honda Pilot because: - Not burning nearly as many fossil fuels (I plan to charge from solar as much as possible). I work in agriculture and climate change is really starting to affect our food production. - Much quieter vehicle. Having grown up...
  16. Which furry friend will be riding in your Rivian?

    Our Sheltie, Weston, will be co-piloting our R1T.
  17. 📂 Rivian IPO S1 Filing - reveals preorder numbers, R1S delivery date, Autonomous Subscription Fee & more...

    Those of you who are concerned about battery charging rate of Rivian vehicles compared to other manufacturers may be interested to know that RJ Scaringe talked about this in an interview over a year ago. He said there are manufacturers who advertise an absurdly high rate, that if actually...
  18. Campers and Roof Rack Tents

    I have an R1T ordered, and although I'm not sure yet how much camping we will do with it, my daughter and her partner are also looking at buying one and he really wants to camp with theirs. He would like to use something that is a truck bed camper like this Lance 650, but that short bed model...
  19. Are we happy now?

    One of the reviews just posted was by Quinn Nelson at Snazzy Labs. He commented at the very end of the review that he had spoken to RJS during the test drive event and was told by RJS that he was confident they would get through all their pre-orders by the end of 2022 (didn't specify R1T vs...
  20. R1T Reviews Master List: JRE, Rivian Stories, Jalopnik, Inside EVs, KBB, Roadshow, ETC

    That was a good review - he covered a few things others hadn't, and it was nice to see a closeup of the wristband for opening/starting the truck - only one that did that I've seen.
