    Gasp... pure touch interfaces aren't what consumers want

    FWIW there still may be some physical controls on a Rivian as we really don't know yet where Rivian will land with the final version of the steering wheel, or for that matter anywhere else in the vehicle. I would actually prefer to have a few common and multi-purpose, physical controls. E.g...

    What we might see in that configurator: Options, Launch Edition, etc...

    I would say no as others have. However, I can easily see Rivian partnering with one of the current EVSE suppliers so Rivian can offer one (possibly from a list of different EVSEs) as an option at purchase and/or include it in one of their option packages. With Rivian being a luxury brand and...

    More Rivian Local Meet & Greet Events this Spring / Summer

    Cancelled? Did Rivian make another announcement after they sent the email that indicated the upcoming events would be postponed? The stories section of their website, https://stories.rivian.com/ , still indicates the events are only postponed.

    Bed length

    Exactly. I've heard that long ago from Rivian and have mentioned that to others may times (e.g. those that appear to be anti-Rivian / pro-Tesla CT). That's a different market segment Rivian just isn't "officially" (publicly) targeting with the R1T. I also recall RJ saying something like that...

    Why are you buying your Rivian?

    Like I said, you can speculate all you want.

    More Rivian Local Meet & Greet Events this Spring / Summer

    I get email from Rivian from two different email addresses - preorders (at) rivian.com and hello (at) rivian.com. The first one should be self-explanatory. The second one I believe is for those that signed up for their e-newsletter which you can do via the Rivian website. The latest email...

    Why are you buying your Rivian?

    Possibly, and I would agree but I think an important question, which you postulated Mark in another thread, needs to be answered first - "Does Rivian want to be a low volume/high margin or high volume/low margin producer?" We can speculate all we want but until Rivian answers or gives some...

    What we might see in that configurator: Options, Launch Edition, etc...

    Perhaps my "Rivian brain cells" are starting to fade since Rivian revealed back in Nov 2018 but I don't recall there would be no spare. I spoke to the R1S team lead at the Normal event last October and asked him about a full size spare tire. He came right out and said "How can you have an...

    New app for Tesla owners -- Would you like to see something like this for Rivian?

    Not sure but he does work with big data / data analyst. The app was released in Feb 2017 as Teslab. Here's an early video of Ben reviewing it back then. At some point they apparently renamed it Tezlab. Not sure if he was part of the original team to develop it but according to the app...

    Possible Tax Credit Loss

    Illinois had one? Even if they did they appear to be going in the opposite direction. The only EV "incentive" I was aware of in Illinois was the reduced vehicle registration fee - $36 every two years. Illinois legislators not only eliminated it last July but increased it to $100 more than...

    New app for Tesla owners -- Would you like to see something like this for Rivian?

    Rivian has said they will be providing a smartphone app but have given no details as of yet. Teslanomics youtube channel just posted a video about a new smartphone app, Tezlab, for Tesla owners. It appears to have some interesting features. Thought it would be interesting to get current EV...

    Even just a 1-5 mile per day solar panel would be handy

    Oh yea, forgot about the Lightyear One. Probably because (according to Business Insider) "Lightyear is taking preorders now for the first 500 cars for a reservation price of about $135,000. When the car finally hits Netherland production lines in 2021, the price is expected to start at about...

    Even just a 1-5 mile per day solar panel would be handy

    I wouldn't expect solar on the current R1T/R1S models. Perhaps on upgraded versions or new models altogether, but that would probably be years down the road. If solar is a high in check list item for you, have you checked out the Fisker Ocean? They "claim" the solar roof will produce "1000...

    First I'm hearing/reading that. Were you told this at the FCL event last month? Latest I've read was from a Rivian Twitter post months ago which made its way their website FAQ section: Do you offer test drives? Not yet, but we can’t wait to get you behind the wheel. We’ll be offering test...

    More Rivian Local Meet & Greet Events this Spring / Summer

    Good point on retaining pre-order holders, though I would think this would be more for those who have not seen the EAVs in person yet, which could be a significant amount. Definitely worth while to attend if that's the case, however, for pre-order holders that have seen them, there seems much...

    Hello from Chicagoland area

    Oh boy, looks like I've overlooked this thread for a while. Thanks for the suggestion! Looks like you got yourself a nice deal with that Spark and it has worked out well for you. I haven't owned and driven (full time) a sedan/car since before my 1995 Explorer. As it turns out my attempts to...

    Winter Testing

    Nice post. So does snow-birding in Virginia actually cause your average Wh/mi to be the same (301) as a Quebec summer or is that a typo?
