    What We Do Not Know - Important Information Still Needed to Make an Informed Decision

    Thanks for posting this. That's a bummer for me. I was hoping that they can fold flat or 'mostly flat'. Hoping that the test drives will help us find how flat it is. For that occasional big box I wanna haul from costco need it to be flat 🙂. Hopefully we get to see some pictures in the days to...

    $7,500 to spend on R1S: upgrade to Adventure trim, or 75mi of range?

    Agree. Bigger the battery size the better. I have a Model S 75D. This fits my daily usage of 60+ miles with plenty to spare. Its only when we do road trips that we wished we had a little more juice even though we plot the journey lined up with superchargers. Had to stop 3 times for 20 minutes on...

    Rivian Gift

    That's great. Hope you like it. I have mine preserved in a folder in appreciation of the goodwill gesture by Rivian. For those of us who have been waiting for abt 2 years, we received the concept art after placing our pre-orders. I am assuming they are doing the same for everyone who has placed...

    Roof options

    I can share what the customer support folks told me. You have much more newer information so this means that more options for the roof are gonna come in 2022. My question: 1. Roof of R1S: I am hearing that the glass roof is going to be a plain tinted one and not photo-chromic. Is this true ...

    Heads up display

    I have HUD in my BMW X3 and it is really good, customizable to pick what information I want, the height, angles of display etc. Wish my Tesla had it as well. I bought a pair of non-polarized sunglasses and leave them in th BMW for use. Has worked well for me. I thought the HUD would be a...

    Driver+

    This article tells about the plans Rivian has for the equivalent capabilities as FSD. 'Guardian Mode. There will be finer grain differences certainly between the two. With the software first architecture that Rivian has, I am expecting Rivian's implementation of L2 to be at par with Tesla...

    Thanks @Surferdude , @electruck. Let's see what Rivian does. Worst case, the double layer of tint is possibly the best option.

    What We Know - Collecting Information Directly From Rivian

    Just finished reading all the 14 pages in this thread. Thanks to everyone who contributed and to @Hexijen for compiling the list. It certainly helps to know what we are buying :). In my Model S, the tinted glass rooftop doesn't cut it for me. On a sunny day with the outside weather (~44 degrees...

    How Did Your Pre-Ordering Go Today?

    Preorder - Sept 30 2019, Config complete - R1S, LE, Silver, Black interior, 22 inch sport. Was debating between the 21 inches road and 22 inches sport. My main use is daily commute on I-90 and weekend freeway drives on I-5, I-90 or the Oregon coast. Not getting any younger so looking for...

    Configurator Strategy?

    I know we are a few hours away. My guess is that LE will be the first ones thru the assembly lines. They might look at the demand for the LE and then source all the parts accordingly and firm-up their Aug 2021 to Dec 2021 delivery plans [for R1S]. They will also know the non-LE demand and see if...

    Rough Calculation of Rivian Orders, Delivery Times

    Just copy the link in the email (Right-click on the link) and open it in a new browser instance. This is my windows email client. But pretty much this can be done in web mail or any of the clients available today. When you paste it in a new browser session (advisable to use another browser...

    Rough Calculation of Rivian Orders, Delivery Times

    Yup that is pretty much how it would be. If you copy the link from the pre-order confirmation email and paste it in a new browser instance, you can see that it asks you to log on with your email and order #. Its possible that only the pre-order folks will be able to to create an account when...
