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

    Tesla just announced they're suspending all production at the Fremont plant starting March 24. This could last multiple quarters, wonder how long their cash will last before needing loans...

    Rivian Takes On Direct Sales Battle in Several States

    You can do what people in the states that don't allow direct-sales do when buying Teslas. Purchase online, take delivery out of state, drive it home and register it in your state.

    Pardon the temporary look while we renovate

    The header images cycle for me. Nice new look and functionality @Administrator! The site loads faster too now.

    Good Forbes Article on Rivian - production number estimates and vehicle servicing mentioned

    We know a hatchback crossover rally-style vehicle is one of them: https://www.rivianforums.com/threads/possible-first-peek-at-rivians-future-rally-model.40/ I'm definitely looking forward to that one. The Model Y and Mach-E are both too soft and traditional for me. A more rally-raid type...

    What Does Ford's Financial Situation Mean for Rivian?

    I can't believe that article has made the rounds on so many sites. Read the disclosure at the bottom, the author is a swing trader! He trades off swings in a company's stock price so this is a doomsday hit piece IMO and for all we know he's got a short position on Ford and hoping this article...

    Bollinger priced at $125,000

    If you read the comments from the company, it's priced so high because they refuse to borrow $ to produce their vehicles, like so many startups do, which gets them into financial trouble early. Noble business plan but judging by the reactions on the internet, the sticker shock may make the...

    Ford Mach E (full electric SUV) design leaked. 300 mile range, 400+ HP, AWD/RWD

    https://www.macheforum.com/threads/mach-e-cad-images-leaked.17/ Doesn't seem like a full sized SUV so not a R1S direct competitor? But looks like a smaller SUV with Mustang inspired styling. Pretty decent stats -- should get 300 miles range, 400+ horsepower, and be both AWD and RWD.

    Take away from NY Auto Show (pics)

    Don't think so. Haven't seen them in any R1S pics.

    Rivian to attend Overland Expo in Flagstaff, AZ

    Great event for Rivian to be attending Overland Expo as it's the largest overloading event every year. They're sure to catch a ton of attention there with the R1T. Would be a nice place to introduce some accessories too since everyone there is so geared towards modifying/accessorizing.

    Ford invests $500M in Rivian! Partnership to deliver all-new Ford EV

    Great news for Rivian's financial situation! GM must be pissed :headbang: Ford must not have asked for exclusivity since that's one of the reasons Scaringe cited for the GM negotiations failing. Wonder what EV Ford will build on the skateboard architecture??

    Demonstration of R1T's "superior handling on anything you may call a road"

    Thought it was CGI in the first few seconds but that's real footage. Having a separate motor at each wheel, each independently controlled, with no mechanical linkage between them and therefore no need for differentials, makes for all sorts of traction advantages. :like:

    Rivian stores, showroom and direct sales?

    Wow yet another backtrack today! After last week's announcement about closing all stores, Musk is now saying they'll keep half of the stores open but raise prices on Teslas by an average of 3%. Really seems to be making decisions on the fly over there...

    Rivian please adopt Tesla charging standard

    Sounds like Electrify America charging station proliferation is going to make big jumps this year:

    Rear Seat Room in R1S

    I think seating will be comfortable like the Model X. RJ is a pretty tall guy and his knees seem normal height in the photo. Also look at all that headroom the rear passengers have in the photos I posted earlier. Wouldn't make much sense to drop the seats super low with that much cabin height...

    Rivian annual production target

    According to the article admin just posted: - Annual target of 20,000 to 25,000 vehicles over the first two years of production, and eventually producing 250,000 vehicles per year.

    Rear Seat Room in R1S

    I've been wondering the same about rear seat legroom. Unfortunately I don't think anyone outside of Rivian employees has gotten any seat time (front or rear) yet, except for a few select people that Rivian has worked with for promotional shoots/videos. These are the only shots I've seen of...

    Rivian confirmed for NY Auto Show, with pre-show invite only event

    Fire off your questions guys! I'm going to try to be there. Sounds like we'll be able to meet and speak with CEO/founder RJ Scaringe along with Rivian designers and engineers. Who else is going?? We can have the first Rivianforums members meet :idea:
