    Factory Tour and Accepting Delivery On-Site... and My "Dream Delivery"

    Years ago, I was in the market for a convertible sports car. One of the vehicles I looked at was the BMW Z3. After talking with the sales rep. at a BMW dealer in Charlotte, NC, he mentioned instead of paying a delivery fee. I could use my delivery fee dollars for the Greenville SC Factory BMW...

    A Questions for the Curious

    I am starting a new thread for random and miscellaneous questions. Here is my curious question. Has anyone heard (pun intended) what the decibel level of the R1T horn? Being an off-road EV, it needs a decent audible horn. I can imagine a moose or other animals blocking my path when I’m in the...

Do I want to plop down 70K plus (depending upon options) for a truck I have not even seen in person and reconfigure my garage? I still have so many questions - location of charging...

    Poll: Rivian Factory Delivery & Tour

    Need to weigh the delivery cost, what the factory tour includes, and availability dates for my visit. I think my R1T will not be ready for delivery until the Summer of 2022. And I am still waiting to see an R1T in person, along with available options.
