    R1T versus F150 Hybrid/Electric...

    appreciate the latest comments on this thread - all good points. It's interesting some of the items that drive people's decisions - like not having room in the garage. While it seems minor, that is a major convenience issue. For me, I have a F150 that fits so no problem fitting another one...

    Anyone concerned about Touch Screens failure after a few years?

    Good comments above... the issue my industry has to deal with is just because you provide a backup camera/monitor does not imply the driver uses it, which is why the next step is object detection/auto stop... sort of a never ending scenario. Designing out all 'potential misuse' is a real...

    Anyone concerned about Touch Screens failure after a few years?

    Well thanks for the explanation and snarky response. Yes i can read.., a potential 158,000 vehicle recall also. I hope we do not have any related issues as these vehicles roll out; I do think Rivian has put more thought into this but I wonder how either Telsa or Rivian have completed their...

    Anyone concerned about Touch Screens failure after a few years?

    I saw the article below on Tesla touch screens, in which it was acknowledged the screen 'will fail' in 4 to 5 years. Anyone have any insight on what Rivian will offer here to alleviate this concern...

    R1T versus F150 Hybrid/Electric...

    Lots of good input - great reason to be on the forum. I will like others here, wait to make a decision until such a point I have to place a firm order or get to see/look/feel/test drive a pre-production unit. Some folks have no issue making such a purchase sight unseen. While I recognize the...

    R1T versus F150 Hybrid/Electric...

    Hello all! Love this forum and all the great info shared. Been thinking harder about why I want a Rivian R1T versus a standard traditional truck. For comparisons, I am using a currently available F150 Hybrid and potential future F150 Electric. I wanted to list some pros/cons below and would...

    Reservations About My Reservation

    Without the ability to see/touch in person, I am still keeping my options open. Even though I am a November 2018 reservation holder and live 25 miles from the factory, until I have a solid understanding of capabilities, cost, options, etc... I will be paying attention to the upcoming Hummer EV...

    Federal Tax Credit for Electric Vehicle Chargers Renewed

    thanks everyone for the input. Think I'll try to get an electrician lined up soon as I know the spec now, and maybe wait a bit longer and hope the configurator comes out this year. If I am lucky and have the 'preferred' RiT configuration maybe I'll be driving one next July [#1196]

    Federal Tax Credit for Electric Vehicle Chargers Renewed

    Hi all, I have a question for those who have an EV or already done the research. Assuming you will get your new Rivian in 2H 2021, It might be best to take advantage of this tax credit now and install the needed charging access. Notwithstanding specific location code, it sounds like the...

    Anyone worried?

    I have recently been seriously considering this option. I am just not sure the RiT meets my needs relative to towing/size of bed. Getting the 2021 F150 could be a good option while Rivian/CT/Electric F150/Hummer EV play out....

    EV trucks over next 2-3 years - what's your plan?

    Hi all, early morning perusing the forums before Turkey Day kicks off... Whats your plan for an EV Truck? I have eliminated the cybertruck as I hate the looks and my buddies would laugh me out of the room. Coming from an F150, I put my deposit down on the R1T first hour reservations opened...
