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.
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.
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.
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...
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...
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...
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.
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.
