    1-888-RIVIAN1 customer service line opens....

    Again, I will say that the Tesla tap is not a guarantee anymore in the future when you look on plugshare and see a tesla destination charger. We can go into hypotheticals as well as why a business owner may or may not want to charge to bring in more business. I can argue the fact that there...

    1-888-RIVIAN1 customer service line opens....

    All of this does not matter. Only point of this story is that a non-Telsa at a destination charger is not a guarantee to work in the future like it does today. End of story.

    1-888-RIVIAN1 customer service line opens....

    As I was saying earlier in this thread, it looks like the Teslatap may soon been irrelevant on managers that want payment for you to charge. Since there is no credit card reader and that it is their own platform that they will take payments on, this will seem to then only work on Tesla vehicles...

    Rivian Configurator is Up For Reservation Holders! Share Your Build / Configuration Inside

    One thing that I think isn't all that fair is for those of us that want the 180 pack we will have to pay an additional $1800 for A/T tires. There is no configuring a LE with a large pack and just having to wait.

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

    According to Rivian's website the R1T (truck) you can configure with the large battery but have to wait. The S you won't be able to right away, or am I reading this wrong?: BATTERY SELECTION At launch, every R1T and R1S comes with our 300+ mile pack. We are leading with this pack based on its...

    Are you excited or dissapointed?

    Think about the PR issues that people are saying the truck can't go more than 60 miles in the sand.....

    Are you excited or dissapointed?

    Then you can have the argument that they would make even more profit on the smallest pack, why not start with this one first. If I were a betting man, I would say that there are technical issues with the largest pack. And what everyone else is also saying about the Rebelle rally... Think...

    There's some stuff that bugs me about the configurator/LE process

    I agree with you, and I understand. My issue is with not releasing the 180kwh battery pack as promised. I would have made compromises if it was just time levels. But this is just me. I am sure Rivian will do really well, it just will be with me not purchasing one given that the timing is not...

    There's some stuff that bugs me about the configurator/LE process

    I suppose I should clarify my statement on this. What I mean is that not getting the 180 kwh pack is a no go for me. He is thinking he may get the launch edition. As I was promised (even press release says so) that the 135 and 180 kwh batteries will be available at launch, he can get his...

    VERY DISAPPOINTED!!! No 400+ battery until Jan. 2022?!?!?!

    I understand this also, but as I want to use this as an adventure vehicle, I want the 180 kwh battery. COVID moved the delivery date by 7 months, I am OK with that is it was for everyone. Battery allocations I don't agree with. If I order the 180 kwh battery, someone later in line will have...

    VERY DISAPPOINTED!!! No 400+ battery until Jan. 2022?!?!?!

    They said so in their press release: Rivian’s energy-dense battery module and pack were developed with the most demanding journeys in mind — incorporating tough underbody protection and an advanced cooling system to give occupants the confidence to go further, regardless of terrain or...

    There's some stuff that bugs me about the configurator/LE process

    This seems to be correct. I pre-ordered during the launch in 2018. If I put a grand down today, I would get the same early access to the configurator and would still have to wait until 2022 for the 180 kwh pack. This is a shame as they could have done more. I got he drawing of the truck sent...

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

    This is exactly what I am thinking also. I am underwhelmed with this. While still a great vehicle, I would have expected to be more excited. No power tailgate, no large battery at launch..... Do we even know if the frunk is power open and close?

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

    I agree that this still will be an amazing SUV. My issue is that I am one of the earliest pro-order holders (I put $1k down during the LA auto show) and to get the large pack I will have to wait 7 months after launch. I might as well have kept my grand and just bought it in 2022. That is what...

    VERY DISAPPOINTED!!! No 400+ battery until Jan. 2022?!?!?!

    And keep in mind that if we are talking about cost, the CT is about $70k, which is basically the cost of the launch edition 300 mile truck, so for about the same cost you are getting 200 more miles range. And for an adventure vehicle, range is at the top of the priority list. I think this is...

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

    I'm in agreement with this. I spoke in detail about this with Brian Gase about LiDAR in detail and he said that it will be instrumental in their semi autonomous until proven otherwise as we spoke about how Elon just doesn't want LiDAR on a car. Just seems that many things have changed, and I...

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

    That was me, and the nice lady I spoke to told me that was the only color option. Looks like they are not trained properly yet to answer questions. I made sure to clarify this and she looked it up and said that Launch green would be the only option for the launch edition and that other colors...

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

    Just got off the phone with Rivian. The launch green is the ONLY color you can get with the launch edition. Only option is the wheels and if you want a camp kitchen or not. And they said that there would be a few different options for the kitchen, but pricing isn't known to them but will be...

    what's the new pricing?

    If the "starting price" is still going to be $69k, this would then rule out the small size battery as RJ has said that the $70k price tag will be for a mid battery nicely equipped R1T. I wonder if that battery option will be completely removed?

    2021 Rivian R1T first drive review: It's going to be a game-changer (Roadshow)

    It's actually quite the opposite. The Porsche has the most regen of EVs. What they did was put the regen when you push the brakes, unlike Telsa that regens when you let off the accelerator. Some say that was over-engineered but it does keep the ICE feel like you say.
