    Rivian R1S in many different colors

    The steel blue looks fantastic. I like it better than RJ blue. (Sorry, RJ.) I do hope there is a way to see colors in person (along with many other things, e.g. test drive, though I won't expound on this and stray from the main topic of this thread). The recently announced yellow -- or...

    All - as gombater said, thanks for the feedback and heads up on taxes, scheduling etc. Very helpful. Will look into installation this year.

    Rivian Exec Says Interior will "Wow" Buyers

    If screens exist for backseat passengers, I hope they are an option and we can choose not to have them installed. We are a bit old school about screens. We want our kids to know how to use technology to navigate the modern world, but we discourage the use of screens as a way to pass time . . ...

    Federal Tax Credit for Electric Vehicle Chargers Renewed

    Is this credit just for tax year 2020? No extensions or sun-setting (credit exists, but at lower amount) for subsequent tax years? We are not currently an EV household, Rivian will be our first one. Given an order # of 17-thousand-and-something before any adjustments, I don't think we'll have...

    The wheels are one thing. The garage floor is another. So clean!

    Gasp... pure touch interfaces aren't what consumers want

    Thanks for the two links to very different perspectives on Tesla safety. Still new to the forum and trying to figure out how to quote from two different posts, and failing. Changing windshield wiper settings on a touch screen to me is just another palm-on-forehead design decision. Sure you...

    Rivian Exec Says Interior will "Wow" Buyers

    I second Ohmman's post #8 above. I'm not a luxury-car person, and never would have imagined myself spending as much money on a car as a Rivian R1S will cost. I'm going for the Rivian because of the great potential of an EV that takes my family on fantastic outdoor adventures. If I am going...

    Gasp... pure touch interfaces aren't what consumers want

    I also am a fan of physical knobs and controls because of safety. As described in other posts, anything that enables a driver to keep eyes on the road is a good thing. The more menus to flip through on a touch screen the more time eyes are OFF the road. A family member has a Model 3, and...

    Our own "configurator" Thread

    Thanks for the feedback. Any sense whether the Rivian roof will be steel or aluminum? I was also thinking that compared with the glass roof, it would be easier/cheaper to repair (or replace) than a glass roof. Is that not correct? Other options that occurred to me: factory tint "winter...

    Our own "configurator" Thread

    R1S with 135 kW battery not sure about colors, hope to see options in person before final selection would love to see camping options for the R1S, ala the kitchen for R1T solid roof (easier to repair from hail, right?) something other than wood trim. Just not a fan, though I appreciate that...

    Rivian R2R Rally Inspired Crossover-Wagon Details / Specs Rumored

    New forum member and R1S reservation holder. Excited enough about Rivian that I'm also anticipating their next vehicle. A wagon seems like an excellent choice -- as a purely qualitative observation, Subaru seems to have the "rugged wagon" market mostly to themselves, and I would guess that an...
