I like the Ocean Coast which was my first configuration with my Launch Green (also original config).
After seeing Launch Green and Forest Edge in person, I moved to the Forest Edge interior and kept the Launch Green exterior. I really like the dash for Forest Edge.
After looking at Ocean...
As a shareholder I want to see production at a good and accelerating pace. And I want the brand to be strong for future growth/ROI.
As a a consumer I want quality!
Rivian is challenged with finding the right balance.
My hope is they find a way to accelerate production, without...
Maybe some manufacturer will make a similar trailer with electric motors for each axle to compensate for the weight . build an API to allow EV vehicles to control the motors of the trailer to be in sync with the EV truck/SUV pulling it.
I wonder if Rivian would offer a Ceramic Brake upgrade if they can guarantee a range increase of xx miles…. I bet that would sell if the range increase was at minimum of 50 miles….and the cost was ideally less than $5K….thoughts?
After attending the First Mile event I made some changes to my original configuration (2nd change)
- LE (original config)
- LG (original config)
- FE ... liked the grey tone (not as green as the configurator--- originally had OC)
- Wheels 20" (originally=22" & changed to 20"s after DuckTruck...
We need questions like this to help pass the time to get our R1‘s s00n! Especially for us who have been waiting since 2018…..
so with that:
”Make it so” mode
Mach X mode
Silly fast mode
Sonic Boom mode
might as well have fun while we are in wait mode….
very cool and yes, totally agree with you on this!
Also, physics will dictate the ability to go from point-a to point-b, and at some point, we pass out as humans -- not good:oops:. And I agree passing power for defensive driving to pull out of situations and for that matter stopping power...
I changed my interior to Forest Edge (FE) after seeing it live myself. I originally had Ocean Coast with my Launch Green. I would have kept the Ocean Coast if the option to have the dark wood of the FE instead...so completely change over to FE.
Thanks for all the information!
I ask only because I saw a post on the Tesla Plaid brakes catching fire when used in track-like conditions.
The video had them going up to 100MPH then braking hard and...
I get that busines is business...and they also did not have to provide DSP shares either, but they did.
Business is also about attacting customers. In some markets a cost of a lead can be pretty expensive. So why not put that investment to a happy customer that may drive one or multiple...
I would ask how many DSP participants have already shared that with friends?…. I have…
also when they made the option for the off-road package , to your point, they did not change the base price and it did not change the cost of the LE.
I can see this point of view. I do not believe Rivian is a follower or wants to be Tesla-like.
Yes demand is increasing and we have also heard attrition in this forum.
Rivian is building their brand and this would be another differentiator. Investing in the early adopters would be...
