  1. Why the 6-month delay from Oct ‘21 to Mar ‘22?

    Be prepared for even more delays. There is good reason to believe delays will only get worse as some areas undergo partial or full lockdowns in predicted winter surges. Plus normal holiday slowdowns. It's clear Rivian doesn't have the required supplies to begin serious production and they're...
  2. Looking to purchase your Launch Edition

    It's not just you offering an LE reservation for less than 5k. I'm still looking if anyone wants to send me a message. I'm not paying 5k but I'll send cash money to the first person that sends me an offer I'm interested in.
  3. What are you sacrificing to stay below the $80,000 tax break threshold?

    The BBB that passed the house is $74k for trucks and $69k for SUVs. It can obviously be changed in the senate however they want, but be aware the $80k limit was mentioned but has yet to be added.
  4. Looking to purchase your Launch Edition

    Just a note on this.. no, it's not. It's a mass produced vehicle you can preorder at MSRP with a $7,500 rebate. You're not reselling an R1T for above MSRP. I've dealt with more expensive and rarer cars for years, and I don't know how anyone gets those numbers. Either you're betting that Rivian...
  5. Looking to purchase your Launch Edition

    That is exactly what I'm looking for. If people are hyped about the Rivian, just get your Rivian! But if the car/uncertainty isn't going to work for someone, the offer stands. Happy to just wait for my turn, but would also be happy to get it sooner.
  6. Looking to purchase your Launch Edition

    I'm not sure what the rules are or aren't so if I'm violating any please let me know and delete this. To be clear, I'm just seeing if someone is already canceling and wants to make risk free money. I have a reservation and can get the car at MSRP. I just happen to be an EV fanatic that was late...
  7. Looking to purchase your Launch Edition

    Just wanted to bump this for the weekend. If anyone is going to cancel their LE order I'd be happy to agree on fair compensation to take your spot instead. Send me a message!
  8. Front License Plates

    I'm in the "don't put the front plate on" camp. I've lived in WA for 15 years and never put a plate on, I've gotten 3 parking tickets for it for a grand total of like $120. Never pulled over for it or had it mentioned when I did get pulled over. Just think of it as paying for an aesthetic...
  9. Camera video quality on the R1T/R1S

    I know people are hyped but most likely many of these glitches will be present to some extent on customer cars for a while. If people are expecting their LE to be bug free.. good luck. There are going to be some camera & infotainment issues. Probably some minor QC stuff, too. Hopefully all just...
  10. Looking to purchase your Launch Edition

    I checked with Rivian about this. As of right now you can effectively transfer a preorder by changing your account info to someone else and it will not affect your place in line. At least according to customer service. So if anyone wants to sell their LE or early preorder R1S slot.. let me...
  11. Looking to purchase your Launch Edition

    I wonder how Rivian feels about something like this. Obviously you can't transfer the preorder slot but is it a-okay to buy then immediately flip a Rivian? Obviously the first buyer would get the tax credit which further complicates things. If both parties are in a state with sales tax that's...
  12. Edmunds full (independent) review for R1T - 317 mile range on 21” wheels

    Testing was also in 53 degree weather, they mention it on the spreadsheet. Worth noting is that Edmunds range numbers are incorrect, they use pseudomath to come up with them. In reality they had 46.9 kWh/100 mi out of a 135 kWh battery. Assuming all 135 is available that's 288 miles. But the...
  13. Any vehicle that is comparable to Rivian ?

    The electric Macan will be priced much lower than the Taycan, probably starting at 65k. The "S" version likely around 76, which is usually the Porsche to buy. So yeah, a well equipped S will probably go for 86-88k. It'll depend, too, how this tax limit is set up should it pass. If it's by base...
  14. Any vehicle that is comparable to Rivian ?

    Oddly enough I'll be cross shopping the R1S with the electric Macan. The R1S is bigger than I need and I can live without the more extreme offroad access but a lot depends on the Macan pricing. It'll be whether I want something that pushes me to be a bit more adventurous or something that's...
  15. New Delivery Delay Confirmed - My R1T Delivery Pushed From October to end of February, 2022.

    I really, really wouldn't option your R1T in hopes of getting it sooner. Order the options you want. For all we know, which is to say nothing, they could have used up their inventory of off road package parts and only make R1Ts without it for the next 6 months. We just don't know what they'll...
  16. Patience

    It's probably going to be more than 6 months for an R1S.
  17. Skeptical Of Rivian's Prices

    While there likely will be a small increase, I don't see a world where they make the R1T/R1S ineligible for the tax rebate. Based on more unbiased tests I've seen, the R1T/R1S are more akin to the midrange JLR products in terms of quality/driving/etc. That's still great and makes sense for the...
  18. New Delivery Delay Confirmed - My R1T Delivery Pushed From October to end of February, 2022.

    The Rivian deposit is a waitlist, not an order. They can change whatever they want or just decide not to offer you a car. Most of the time there's a step where you actually finalize an order for a custom car but it doesn't sound like that's what Rivian plans to do in the near future, rather...
  19. Tax Credit Proposal - House Bill 11/3

    This is very interesting and I didn't realize that. Obviously it'd be fantastic for us if they just automatically qualified the R1S/R1T and we didn't have to sweat it. But as you mention, we probably won't know for sure in time so it's probably best to keep below the 80k. Hopefully Rivian...
