    Adventurous Forever video series launched by Rivian

    This definitely seems to be the most ‘production ready’ version that we’ve gotten a glimpse of so far! They’ve also mentioned tweaking the door handles slightly for production vs the prototypes. It appears the handles have been flipped with the dimple appearing on the opposite side. Not sure if...

    I asked about other paddle functionality besides tank turn and they’re still trying to decide on that.

    Attending Fully Charged Live in Austin?

    I spoke with a battery engineer who took note of many things I brought up that she didn’t have answers to. She said she’d try to email if she’s able to get any answers :fingerscrossed:. I edited my previous post, but two employees made it seem like a burnt orange/root beer color will be...

    Attending Fully Charged Live in Austin?

    Well I was there at the Rivian stand for a little while earlier. Didn’t have a ton of time to talk to the employees, but did find out a few things (might not be all new to everyone): No CarPlay or Android Auto. I feel like I’ve heard a few mixed things about this, but the guy I spoke to said...

    GMC Hummer EV teaser video - 1,000 HP and 11,500 ft lbs

    I will admit, I am also interested to see the full reveal! Sounds like it’ll be quite a beast, and more competition in the space should continue to spur innovation (& more charging stations ;)).

    When Did You Pre-Order Your Rivian?

    Feb 2019. Wish I had jumped on board sooner!

    Unofficial color thread for R1S (with renderings)

    I mainly remember thinking that the green interior is definitely not for me haha.

    Unofficial color thread for R1S (with renderings)

    The light gray interior does look really sharp in person! I’ve started to steer away from dark interiors here in TX due to the summer heat, but the blue exterior/black interior looks awesome imo.

    Lower than previously announced pricing coming according to Reuters (69k for mid range)!

    The ~$69k price for the mid-range truck was brought up shortly after the Cybertruck reveal I thought? Prior to that, I also expected the 135 kWh R1T with the electrochromic roof would be at least around $80k so this makes me very happy to hear again.

    New Motortrend article details Rivian's production plans for Ford, Amazon and own vehicles

    It has been stated many times in articles and things awhile back and it’s what I’ve been expecting all along. Not everyone was convinced though. This just seems like the most official statement now that we’re nearing production. Very excited.

    New Motortrend article details Rivian's production plans for Ford, Amazon and own vehicles

    Is this the first true confirmation that the R1T will start production about 3 months before the R1S?

    I think it’s about 20 min outside of downtown Austin, but is a solid place.

    Attending Fully Charged Live in Austin?

    I’ll be there, but might be on a tight schedule Saturday evening. I’ll have to see what I’m able to do after the event on Saturday. As far as recommendations go, Live Oak is my favorite brewery and is also quite close to COTA :rock:

    Rivian makes cursory attempt to update pre-order holders

    Also got it. Not sure if it was accidentally sent out or what. Got excited to see a ‘new’ email, only to find nothing new.

    Tires. All Season or All-Terrain?

    Agreed, and have had a similar experience. I’ve had Toyo M/T’s, Nitto Trail Grapplers, and Toyo ATII’s. I plan to throw the ATII’s on the Rivian when it arrives (depending on available tire/wheel packages). Great tire.

    First official look at White Rivian R1S

    Hook ‘em :rock: I will say I’ve never really been a fan of burnt orange on vehicles, but would be interesting to see Rivian implement it!

    First official look at White Rivian R1S

    I’m kind of hoping for a metallic red. I was originally wishing for a metallic blue, but don’t see that happening after they revealed the current flat blue. I could see a ‘desert’ shade potentially happening too, similar to what you mentioned above.
