    Cold Weather Testing | Progress Report | Rivian - Official Video

    Is that specific to Tesla, or do you think all BEVs EPA estimates are impractical?

    Cold Weather Testing | Progress Report | Rivian - Official Video

    Keep in mind that picture is taken from the center or even passenger side of the vehicle -- not from the driver's perspective. "Glare" to the passenger would not be glare to the driver... and only the driver needs to see the instrument cluster.

    Cold Weather Testing | Progress Report | Rivian - Official Video

    I hope that proves to be wrong, as Rivian has consistently said 300+ and 400+ miles for the Large/Max packs.

    Cold Weather Testing | Progress Report | Rivian - Official Video

    The instrument cluster has a Tesla-like visualization that is showing what objects the self-driving system detects -- like cars ahead and in adjacent lanes. I really hope that is a production feature and not just a development/testing screen.

    Rivian Adventure Network (RAN) Charging Station Specs Revealed: 300kW with 200-920V Output

    I'm not sure. The specs on those L2 chargers have many commercial-relevant features. It's possible Rivian will release one unit and either disable or let those options be configurable... But I wouldn't be surprised if they release a separate unit for residential use.

    Add on packs for extra battery capacity

    Yes, I thought long and hard about that, but decided to do the 400 mile pack for my reservation. As much as I'd love to get my R1T sooner, I wanted to save my place in line for the larger pack, and it doesn't hurt to see six months worth of reviews before I get truly committed to a $90k...

    Add on packs for extra battery capacity

    I'm going with the bigger pack. Several reasons to do so, imo: 1. I don't want to stop "every ~100 miles" 2. Extreme weather (both winter and summer) will reduce range 3. Battery age will reduce range 4. The extra range may be the difference between having to stop and being able to just go...

    5 Seat versus 7 seat

    There may be additional panels in the 5 seat config that give you a level load floor. Remove the 3rd row and the floor probably drops the height of the seat cushion.

    Preferred R1S Seat Configuration?

    Same. If Tesla had released a more conventional design, I almost certainly would have put down a reservation. Instead, it's Rivian and GMC fighting it out, in my mind.

    Preferred R1S Seat Configuration?

    Tesla has always operated with hubris. They have innovated and have certainly driven the industry forward; but they take a "our way or the highway" approach. Falcon Wing doors sounded and looked cool, at first, but they're not practical. There is no reason those should have been retained in...

    Rivian experience center opening in Laguna Beach [updated with design plans]

    And that's what should happen. Glad everyone came to an agreement rather than litigate nonsense.

    Who will get theirs first?

    what is tmc?

    Rivian Official Video: The Long Weekend Wyoming

    Did you really just write a post chastising people for wanting more info, but then finish same post saying you have a concern and basically need more info to confirm?

    RJ posts Rivian winter testing video

    Nope, and it did kind of bother me a bit. "oh hey kids, check out this drifting (drives straight)". They could have at least cut away to drone footage of a pro kicking the rear end out. I thought the Wyoming "Low Way" video had much better shots of drifting in it.

    Possible Skid Guard sighting in Rivian Video

    Maybe. You could be right. Consider, however, that Rivian has "removed" a lot of features, and they have probably made several permutations of R1Ts with configurations that will not exactly match what goes to production.

    Video discusses Rivian's Prime Charging: RAN (Rivian Adventure Network) with some ABRP options

    Do we know they’re different parts? Or has Rivian simply optimized the controllers and software?

    New Rivian Sales and Repair/Service Location Coming to Downtown San Francisco

    It’s a joke, but Tesla did sue Rivian, iirc, because they hired some former Tesla engineers. They’ve also sued Apple for the same.

    Possible Skid Guard sighting in Rivian Video

    Lots of manufacturer's have incomplete visuals in their configurators. Barring evidence to the contrary, I'd assume that's the skid plate that's part of the Adventure package.
