    Preorder community will get exclusive early access to Rivian Configurator

    They’ve been saying “Later this years” and “Late summer” interchangeably since like June. I’m still putting my money on September at this point

    Rough Calculation of Rivian Orders, Delivery Times

    Ah ok, so it is just the source page order number. Ok. I just wanted to make sure it wasn’t listed in the actual email and I was somehow missing that

    Rough Calculation of Rivian Orders, Delivery Times

    Which link is that? My pre-order confirmation email just has my address and billing info and whatnot. No order number either, other than the one we’ve been finding in the source code

    Your Actual Place in Reservation Line, Based on Rivian Preorder #

    I’m not sure about the second point, but to the first point I would say it seems like a solid number! https://www.vox.com/2017/8/2/16087432/tesla-model-3-electric-car-manufacture-preorder-cancellations-elon-musk I did some math on the conversion rate for the Model 3, and based on the numbers...

    Your Actual Place in Reservation Line, Based on Rivian Preorder #

    So my adjusted number is 2770 (1000 down from my original of 3770). Planning on getting a fully-loaded 180 KWH R1S. Does that put me into September at least? Lol

    Find your Rivian Order Number & Post it Here!

    Interesting. So then, based purely on this fact, everyone is actually 1001 places earlier in line? (Might be a stupid question, but better to clarify)

    SHOP app gave me a possible order number.

    December 13 That’s true I suppose. Really hard to say though, since we don’t have official numbers from Rivian. Regardless, I’m satisfied with my place in line lol

    SHOP app gave me a possible order number.

    I put in my order for the R1S back in December of 2018, and my Shop app says I’m order #3770 Edit: Is it possible that these order numbers are just the Shop/Arrive app’s internal counter? Like, I’m the Xth person to order the vehicle while the app was installed, as opposed to the number being...

    Rivian Announces New Timelines - R1T Delivery Begins June 2021 and R1S in August 2021. Pilot Production Starts

    It’s possible, but that would kinda negate the whole “Late Summer/Right Around The Corner/Very Soon” line that Rivian has been giving us lately. I’m still holding out hope that we’ll see the configurator August/September. Given that the actual vehicles are now further out than we expected, I...

    How Rivian will Rollout the R1T Lineup

    From what I recall, the point of releasing the most fully-loaded vehicles first is to get as much of their (Rivian’s) tech out in the wild as soon as possible. I assume they want to know about any problems ASAP, so it makes sense to me

    The Composition of Rivian’s R1T Customer Base:

    I think the long and short of it is that Rivian has, since the beginning, presented themselves as the producer of high-tech luxury(ish) vehicles. They never said they were going after fleet sales or the blue collar sector. Sure, you do exclude certain market segments by going upscale and...

    Lack of Communication??

    Quite possible. I just wanted to see what they said, tbh. The way I use the phrase at least, “Right Around The Corner” is far more immediate/imminent than “later this year” Who knows, perhaps we’ll all get a pleasant surprise and the configurator will show up sooner than expected

    Lack of Communication??

    I decided to email them last Friday and inquire about the configurator, just to see if I got “Late Summer” or “Later This Year” Turns out, I got neither! Who wants to try and speculate as to what “Right Around The Corner” means?

    Rivian drops images of R1T in new color

    I’m not sure I’ve ever seen like a Mustard yellow option before. But hey, in a sea of black, white, and silver cars, this’ll certainly stand out

    Lack of Communication??

    Well, one could argue that “Late Summer” (August/September) would still qualify as “Later This Year” So as an eternal optimist, I’m going to hope it’s just a phrasing issue and not another configurator delay

    When Did You Pre-Order Your Rivian?

    Well, all the more reason to go big and fully load the thing up then!

    When Did You Pre-Order Your Rivian?

    Well, since you all seem to be better at predicting than I, here’s my riddle! I preordered an R1S on December 13th, 2018. When do I get my car aha.

    When Did You Pre-Order Your Rivian?

    My understanding was that the original goal was for the first R1Ts to go out in like December, with the majority being delivered in Q1 of 2020. The R1S was then supposed to follow in like March/April. So with the COVID delay, I’m sorta just adding 2 months to the delivery times.

    R1S vs R1T Decision: Help...and Let's Play

    Yeah, I would concur with that. Even pre-COVID, I wasn’t expecting to get my R1S until sometime after March 2021, so late Q1 isn’t actually that bad
