    Economic Reasons to Buy an EV instead of a gas powered car

    The previous thread makes me realize that we have waited long enough and it is time for RIVIAN to give us something concrete to talk about. When we are down to six sigmas and rutabagas it is time for the configuator so that the long wait until delivery can be filled with realistic discussions.

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

    A home charger is a must have - both 110V and 220V. Run flat tires are a very desirable feature. Adds lots of storage. especially on the R1S. Not everyone is going to run their $100k vehicle on the rockpile. We have to trust that RJ and crew will deliver a game changer and market winner.

    Run Flat Tires

    I am interested in the R1T but would change to the R1S if it were available with run flats and no third row seats. This frees up a lot of interior storage space. I had this combination on my X5 and it worked really well. Has Rivian done any testing with run flats? This would also work on the...

    Regenerative Braking Capacity

    The point was that what regen is worth to someone depends on that person's perspective and, indeed, on the circumstances. During the summer I charge from hydro so there is no environmental impact if I waste energy (except for the relatively tiny losses of transmission). During the winter it's...

    Seattle Rivian Event (photos, reactions). Blue R1T + more details revealed

    First impressions from Seattle. BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL!!! Huge tires and wheels - no run flats on this baby. Changed my choice from R1S to R1T - better looking and more functional. Good conversation with Mason, employee #23, regarding power transfer and driver controls. Extra long...

    Has Rivian tested run flat tires, and if so what are the results? I had run flats on my X-5 and although the ride was just a little rougher they freed up a lot of storage space. I was going to put them on my Land Rover Discovery at 30k miles.
