    Will the Launch Edition get any additional exclusive features/options before release?

    Back in the day, this type of vehicle would have been ripe for a marketing promotion like "purchase a new rivian and recieve a K2 ski package!" or a deal with Big Agnes or something. I guess they don't need that kind of marketing anymore and the vehicle is enough.

    Somewhat disappointing- colors cost extra

    For the kitchen I would point out that I think the materials costs is huge. Just with the cookware which is Snow Peak titanium (very expensive, probably 1k worth in the video alone) they have premium materials. I'm sure the rest of the kitchen is made out of the good stuff.

    Tires. All Season or All-Terrain?

    ... and while many people will use the regenerative breaking just like they use coasting now in a regular vehicle, there are plenty of people that tend to drive cars with the gas on the floor or the brake on the floor and nothing in between.

    Accessories Included in Config Pricing: Roof Rack and Tow Hitch?

    I'm glad they hid the hitch in the bumper. Seems like it was standard on all SUVs for a few years and now I see a lot of them going back to having it hanging under the bumper, even on the higher end models.

    Tires. All Season or All-Terrain?

    I think it would be limited by the wheel type more than the vehicle with clearances etc. I think for the sport wheels/tires you would need to go with a snowsock or zip ties, both which seem very effective. For the other tires/wheels you should be able to use chains as long as you have the clearance.

    Configurator URL

    Anyone else try guessing the configurator URL and put in https://rivian.com/configurator and see it say "loading configurator" and get excited only to see it dump to the preorder checkout? <sigh>

    Rivian Launches New Website: Updated Prices, Launch Edition, Timing, Colors and More!

    Yea, I understand maybe people don't like that exactly what they said is not the case now, but I think saying we can't trust them is going a little far. How many concept and prototype vehicles have been at car shows over the years and the manufacturers have said "oh yea, coming out next year...

    Rivian Launches New Website: Updated Prices, Launch Edition, Timing, Colors and More!

    I know you said you didn't look at plug share, but it appears there are a lot of chargers in college station (those little gray dots on your map). Were you just looking for 200kw+ chargers?

    Rivian Launches New Website: Updated Prices, Launch Edition, Timing, Colors and More!

    It could be photochromic like some eyeglasses are or just a tint like they put on gondolas. I remember when Disney put their new gondola system in and people were loosing their minds about no AC in them and they put special tint (ceramic?) on that keeps the temp way lower than anywhere else...

    R1S interior dimensions?

    The numbers are still odd though. The back area looks so much bigger than the explorer, but the explorer 18 (must be bin and behind seat) is more than the Rivian 13 (7.1 + 5). Maybe the other brands count all the way to the ceiling or something. I guess 5 cubic feet can be little carve outs in...

    Rivian Launches New Website: Updated Prices, Launch Edition, Timing, Colors and More!

    Just jumping in to remind everyone that the site isn't showing everything of course. Like you would see on ford or gm site they are showing the new tech and highlights. When browsing a Ford explorer they don't show heated steering wheels, power seats, etc on the highlight marketing pages, you...

    Rivian announces 7-Seat version with longer range

    yea, I saw that, makes it real hard to make the decision. Someone will need to whip up an app so you can put in your order date and see the projected delivery of all the versions on a timeline so you can optimize your selection :)

    Rivian Configurator is going live on 11/16!!!!

    So looking at what was posted in the other thread, it seems the bonus of preorder is just early access to the configurator. They say that you can "keep configuring your vehicle" as new options and accessories are added and that the delivery will be based on the preorder date. So if someone...

    Rivian Configurator is going live on 11/16!!!!

    So if we want to take advantage of having preordered we need to do so by the 23rd or we have no advantage over someone who didn't preorder?

    Interior swatches - Black Mountain, Forest Edge, Lunar Rock

    Yea, noticed that. I couldn't tell if it was blueish or not. Looking back in the cabin it appears gray, from the back seat it appears a little blue. I'm a little confused by the colors. I see the black and the ocean/ash, but I didn't see the green/ash.

    Rivian Launches New Website: Updated Prices, Launch Edition, Timing, Colors and More!

    I see. I was confused you could only get it in the launch green. I like the light interior, I wish we could see the outside and inside colors together and not just cycle the videos

    Rivian Launches New Website: Updated Prices, Launch Edition, Timing, Colors and More!

    So is launch edition only available on green? At the bottom it shows blue/tan and another dot of color.

    Rivian Configurator is going live on 11/16!!!!

    Yea I remember a quite, maybe in a video of them talking about how they believe someone should be able to really get to know the vehicle online including "how it looks on their driveway"

    what's the new pricing?

    I'll just through out there that the loaded "non luxury" mid size suvs (explorers, etc) are approaching 70k this year and still selling strong too.

    what's the new pricing?

    I would point out that while it is twice the price of the base F150, there are not a lot of base model F150s out there. With so many configurations (I think it is millions if not billions of combos) most of them get optioned up into the 50's at least.
