    Rivian Shuts Down All Facilities to Slow Spread of COVID-19 / Coronavirus

    Sounds like even Rivian doesn't believe that any more.

    R1 Series Seat Update?

    Given the age of the pics and since Rivian's designer referred to those as ideation sketches, those would have preceded the prototype seats in the vehicles on tour. The next iteration we see will be further refined but probably won't change as significantly as between the sketches and prototype...

    R1 Series Seat Update?

    Remains to be seen. I don't believe any specifics have been shared. I would not expect any details until the vehicle configuration tool comes online later this year or we start getting sneak peaks of pre-production vehicles, whichever comes first. Here's the prior mention of changes to seats...

    Are we sure they can't fit 35 inch tires?

    How exactly would the extra 0.9" in tire diameter be of benefit? Tire selection?

    Rivian show the list!

    There's a certain novelty in having access to that info but it wouldn't really tell you much. For starters, neither you nor Rivian know how everyone on the list will configure their vehicle. Even if you assume that everyone is going to get the same maxed out vehicles that will kick off...

    Colorado Senate passes bill allowing EV sales directly from manufacturer to consumer

    The bill was indeed signed by the governor on 3/23.

    what is the voltage system for the Rivian compared to Tesla?

    As one might expect, there is a penalty for being an early adopter. Not really a big deal for daily around town commutes but a huge deal for those making frequent long highway trips. However, It's still not completely clear to me how amenable currently battery chemistry is to frequent fast...

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

    Oh yeah, quite familiar with the video and RJ's point of view. Spoke with him at length about the subject in Mill Valley. I call complete and total BS on any notion of "here's a new feature, that knob you used to use is no longer needed." Sure, with a software defined interface you can...

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

    There's been much lamenting over the demise of physical controls in automobiles of late. While I fully appreciate the benefits from an auto mfr's perspective, it really isn't optimal from a UX perspective. The auto industry, which usually lags well behind tech trends in portable electronics, is...

    Texas here... but looking forward to our first road trip to Nebraska to visit family after we get our R1S.

    Rivian Shuts Down All Facilities to Slow Spread of COVID-19 / Coronavirus

    More like they want to avoid premature panic. They can't guarantee that statement at this point. In theory covid-19 should pass before impacting their schedule but the global human and financial toll of this virus are still unknown. At least at this point they aren't having to shut down existing...

    Bed length

    But that's not really the market they are targeting. They're targeting the adventure / lifestyle market with the R1T/S.

    Rivian R1T Colors - Previews

    I think the kid that posted that was pulling his "facts" from this forum, not realizing that some of those colors were forum members getting creative.

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

    The problem there is Trump also wants to eliminate the incentives....

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

    Unfortunately most (not all) large corporations don't operate like that. Money and resources get prioritized to the projects that generate the most revenue... or are required for compliance. If they are never held accountable to making progress, it will never happen. Trump knew this well as his...

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

    Electrics aside, everyone could have aligned with a single emissions standard by choosing the stricter CA standard instead of aligning with Trump's weakened national standard. I think the manufacturers revealed their true colors when they chose sides....

    Disney+ Options

    It's not completely without value in the absence of fully autonomous driving. For some, it would give them something to do while charging on a road trip. For me personally, not something I would be even remotely interested in.

    More Rivian Local Meet & Greet Events this Spring / Summer

    Seat time and test drives aren't likely until they have pre-production vehicles coming off the assembly line.

    Crash Test Ratings

    Yes, while I would love to see video of the test scenarios prior to delivery I don't expect that will be possible (at least not without deferring my order which I don't intend to do). I will have to trust for now but would still like to see the crash test results in the future in case I might...
