    It's my 3 year Rivianniversary today!

    Wow, 3 short years! Time has flown by, almost didn't even noticed the aged piece of machinery in my driveway awaiting it's replacement. Thought this would be a good opportunity to share why I chose the then unproven/productless Rivian over similar choices from Toyota etc. Back in early 2019...

    Overland Expo in AZ. Anyone here attend??

    Just curious if any forum members were at Overland Expo West this past weekend? I know Rivian was a title sponsor, so curious if they had anything to show off?

    Salomondrin gets his R1T! and... drops a million F-bombs praising it.

    Edit: Key takeaways - He loves it - Wishes it had Carplay - Feels it should have larger brakes And the kicker... He's selling it so pretty much just a promo for him to sell it.

    Rivian Peak Charge Rate

    So, I know Rivian's own page as it relates to charging talks about how the R1 platform can charge at a speed of "up to 140 miles in 20 minutes" and then goes on to talk about their own chargers and how they will initially charge at "speeds of 200kw and up to 300kw in the future". Every time I...

    OFF-ROAD instrument cluster

    Going back to the Rivians debut, they had a demo of what the dashboard would look like while driving. I'd like to see them do something similar to what was shown back then with the front camera on display while in off-road modes. I don't really think the pitch and roll info is very useful in my...
