So looks like the drive, park, reverse will be like the Model S, and I would guess tilt telescope controls as the other with two turn stalks.
The rear doors also didn't have an upper speaker as see before with the other models. Maybe just need to add it later.
Again the bases of the seats are...
Dash looks non-wood, but does have a texture to it. Wonder if there's a glovebox? Looks like we can see the 21" wheel and tire up close too. I guess black door handles are something we can expect. The light interior in this truck seems to have dark doors which is different them what we've seen...
Does anyone know if Rivian's quad motor wheel based propulsion system will be better for range or equal to the dual motor Tesla set up?
Tesla claims the two motors is better for range despite the added weight compared to the single motor.
My concern is other EV manufacturers aren't anywhere...
Was reading about this and could also have something to do with his departure.
Definitely not good PR, true or not.
But again this is akin to early Tesla growing pains with leadership personnel coming and going and the rumors/claims that follow.
That's true and a big part of the partnership. Rivian builds the platforms, Amazon buys the tech for self driving which Rivian will have access to.
Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Aurora working with FCA, but recently dropped ties with VW who went with Argo (joint venture with Ford)?
The deal I'm guessing revolved around Cruise AI from some behind the seems talk I heard. Rivian was interested in access to GM's extensive lidar based maps with Cruise AI, GM felt that access was worth basically all of Rivian.
Who knows... Crusie does have a 20 billion valuation which is larger...
My Model S was decent, I felt it was luxurious, but again not on par with the classic German big three. But Tesla did a good enough job making it different enough so that you were less inclined to compare it directly to any other vehicle.
It felt special... Luxury, well that's a big and old...
I'm sure this has been asked and answered already, but anyone hear of any lease/subscription (month to month, or year to year) plans for the R1T?
I was looking to lease, but haven't heard anything concrete about ownership plans.
8 color choices
Three battery sizes
180kwh (Drop 3rd Row R1S)
Three interior colors
White (Lunar Rock)
Black (RJ Black)
Each interior color has 2 options for finish accent pieces.
Again the 180kwh is a must for me.
I found with my previous EV and my driving habits that range is basically at 75% the listed capacity. One of my typical commutes for work is 125 miles one way, which will probably drop my range down 160 miles, so just that drove alone to and from work with no...
I was always thinking about this with my Model S, interior temps and all, but temp controls with the all took care of all that for me.
I do however hope that the glass roof will have the same darkness as standard privacy glass included in the majority of cars on the market today.
I'd say go for it. Start a thread and see what people think. I would be in favor of it, but I already posted how I thought an Avalanche style fold down cab/bed patrician wall would be the most versatile for the R1T.
I'm doubtful thought it'll change any time soon with production being so close...
Happy you're excited for your R1T. Out by me (central Illinois) 70k pickups and rough and tumble 20 something pipefitter's and tradesman is very common.
I'm most excited to join in the pickup fun out here in Illinois and am so excited to watch heads spin when my new electric pickup...
Gray all day!
I really like the new faux flat grey FCA has been using on it's vehicles and think it would look good on the R1T.
Otherwise any grey color would do it for me.
I would pick the black interior color option for the vehicle as is, but if I could get a non-wood option for the...
I'm torn as for the fold up seats and access to a flat interior cargo area within the cab.
* It would be a very large, enclosed storage area with unique dimensions in regards to the other storage areas (frunk, bed & tunnel).
* Climate controlled area for storage with access within the cab...
With RJ referencing a new 21" wheel we have yet to see, I do remember him saying something about wheel options for the R1T. I know that the first wheel picture I posted was his "favorite 20" wheel" for the R1T on the blue R1T when it was on display at the Rivian Normal event. The second was the...
So maybe the R1T will only have a 20" and 21" wheel option (no 22"s like the SUV).
I personally liked the look of the 22" wheel best, but my discovery has 21's and looks fine.
It's always interesting to see what little easter egg bonus's they drop into the video updates.
