    Rivian Takes On Direct Sales Battle in Several States

    Nice find at @DucRider! Also, I see that the credit could be $8k based on the spec'd towing capacity of the R1T. Hoping I deposited early enough to get one before the end of the year!

    Rivian Takes On Direct Sales Battle in Several States

    Only problem is you lose out on state tax credit. Here in Colorado it's $5k. Ouch. I emailed my State Rep and Senator a few days ago supporting the bill. I hope it passes.

    When Did You Pre-Order Your Rivian?

    29/11/2018 at 11:13 pm At least that's when I received email confirmation. It was probably more like 11:12 pm;)

    (Bed) size matters

    It's always tough to infer how worked up someone is through internet posts so forgive me but, dude, it'll be ok. Don't buy the Rivian. Wait for an electric truck that has the bed you want. It's like you have some axe to grind against people who don't put ATVs in their trucks. All this talk of...

    Rivian trademarks TANK TURN! Now with official video.

    I love everything about this. Maybe it's because I'm a Rivian fanboi but the advertising/PR behind this is nearly perfect. Playful music, short and sweet, a nice tease without too much info... I too cannot imagine a scenario where this would be useful. Every place where I've wanted to turn...

    Tesla Truck Unveiling 11/21

    I don't know. Is it a concept car if what is being revealed will be the production version? I guess I'm confused. The overwhelming majority of concept car reveals lead to nothing or the actual production model being very different, at least in my minimal experience in the automotive world. This...

    Tesla Truck Unveiling 11/21

    According to this article, the truck was a clay model 2 months ago and was only half built 2 weeks ago. In my mind, there are a sh*t ton more question marks about this ghastly vehicle compared to what we knew about the R1T and R1S at their reveal. I guess that's what 10 years of planning...

    Tesla Truck Unveiling 11/21

    Tesla Truck Unveiling 11/21

    Would love to have been a fly on the wall in whatever room RJ was watching that. What an absolute dumpster fire. Posted specs are nice though.

    R1T offroad footage and info from from South America!

    Fair points to be sure. I was not impressed by the driver either, especially seeing her bomb over that bump. I have little experience compared to your stated exploits but even a small amount is all that's needed to understand that's not the way to travel on difficult trails. Having said that...

    “Cascade” blue R1T in the wild

    LOVE the commentary provided by the videographer at the very end. Agree with @TXKidd...blue is b-e-a-utiful

    Preproduction Rivian R1T spotted testing at Tierra del Fuego!

    Trim/rocker panel below doors is a touch different. Is it too much to ask that these areas be a bit beefier, like a rock slider, steel or thick aluminum, to afford some sort of body protection while off road?

    Rivian Waiting Room: Have you pre-ordered with deposit?

    LA Auto Show dates were Nov 30-Dec 9. People preordered before Nov 30 so it started some time before the show. November 1st, 15th, 25th? There could be a handful or >1000 people ahead of someone who preordered during the LA show. No idea how many trucks will be built on any given day, let alone...

    Rivian Waiting Room: Have you pre-ordered with deposit?

    Damn you, @timf;) We still don't know what exact day they officially started accepting preorders, correct? I think the earliest I've seen was November 26th.

    Rivian Waiting Room: Have you pre-ordered with deposit?

    Me too, @ElectricTrucking. I'm thinking we should be pretty high on the list.

    Build quality

    I suspect no one on the forum will be able to answer your question. Those of us who have been in the presence of the trucks have been roped off from touching anything, let alone sitting in the cab to get a feel for quality. Further, as these show vehicles are early prototypes, they aren't...

    (Bed) size matters

    New to the forum so reading through all this older stuff and responding... I would almost certainly NOT choose a bigger bed. My needs/wants are different than hauling toys like you want to do. I will be using it as an off road family camping rig so like the shorter wheelbase and presumed better...

    Rivian Waiting Room: Have you pre-ordered with deposit?

    Just voted. I preordered the R1S way back in November, but will be switching to the R1T. I want the largest battery capacity and in the SUV that eliminates the 3rd row, IIRC. And calling the seats back there a 3rd row is a stretch anyway. If I can't put any sizable human in the 3rd row, why get...

    New video: R1T at Overland Expo West 2019 Q&A with Rivian

    Just discovered this forum today. Was at the Rivian event here in Denver this past weekend and am really excited about these vehicles now. Hadn't seen the video posted above but while talking with one of the Rivian guys at the event I asked if he would give the door a nice firm shut so I could...
