    Tesla Battery Day

    I’ve always felt like that Rivian was under promising and hopefully will be over delivering. I feel like that’s why the configurator hasn’t been released yet—too many fluctuations on pricing/material availability to make it accurate. I’m hoping we’ll all be pleasantly surprised.

    Tesla Battery Day

    I confess to not watching the presentation, but here’s a link that takes a deep dive into the technology. Wired Tesla Battery Day Review It sounds like an impressive roadmap but nothing tangible as of yet. I greatly respect what Tesla/Musk have done over the last several years, but he’s...

    Fully Charged covers Long Way Up and Rivian & R1T

    Thanks for posting that. The show looks like a lot of fun regardless of RIvian’s involvement. Can’t wait to start watching tomorrow.

    Poll: Rivian Factory Delivery & Tour

    I’m totally up for a factory tour and drive home to Salt Lake in my new R1S. I would also consider pick-up in California and driving home from there, but I could make a few stops to see friends in Colorado along the way from IL. Count me in.

    Tesla, Rivian in court over trade secrets

    Musk is putting out a little lawsuit propaganda. He gets a lot of free publicity because he’s such an easy/interesting quote. At the end of the day, I prefer RJ’s approach. “They’re doing bad things”

    Elon appears to be hedging his bets a little as competition gets closer to production: Maybe the Cybertruck is a little weird

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

    Me too, another year is painful but I will keep the faith. Hopefully some excitement can be generated once the online configurator is available.

    When Did You Pre-Order Your Rivian?

    I still think it depends on the options chosen with higher priced models coming out a bit quicker. Mid 2021 optimistically?

    Rivian Eventual L3 and Data Gathering

    Yeah, I don’t disagree that the Prime delivery vans are a bit far off in the future, but I can’t imagine Amazon hasn’t been thinking of this before and perhaps collecting some data that might be useful to Rivian....

    Rivian Eventual L3 and Data Gathering

    I have no insider knowledge, but would think the partnership with Amazon would help greatly with data collection—not to mention getting 100,000 delivery vans on the road.

    San Francisco Rivian Event [Updated with impressions, info, photos]

    Thanks for the great pics! I’m pretty sold on the green R1S but the white looks better than I thought it would.

    Rivian Waiting Room: Have you pre-ordered with deposit?

    Placed a deposit on an R1S several months ago. I’m excited to see the online configurator, which will make it seem much more ‘real.’ I have to admit the R1T is appealing, though.

    Tesla Truck Unveiling 11/21

    I have a reservation for an R1S. I have lurked here for a bit but this ‘unveiling’ prompted me to register an account. This is an abomination. There’s no way any sane board of directors will let Musk take this to production. It will be a colossal failure. You can put whatever specs you want...
