    [Video added] Forest Green R1T @ Georgia Capitol Building to support HB460 (direct to consumer sales)

    Let's take it a step further... I think that in order to avoid the "damped" vs "dampened" discussion coming up again we should hence forth refer to the tailgate mechanism as a "moistening" device. I must say, that's a very nice moistened tailgate your R1T has. Now nobody is happy.

    3 Months Away!

    I picked maintenance because I think the next thing we will hear will be finalized specs and other important details that they need to get out of the way before they start finalizing orders. My guess is a press release type email with information on EPA range, new vehicle warranty, and service...

    Cold Weather Testing | Progress Report | Rivian - Official Video

    I think we have learned a lot about the efficiency of these vehicles. Stick with me. In the article on stories.rivian.com they say Edit: I realize now that this info was already available on the FAQ of Rivian's site... But the rest of this is still useful I think. Now from the leak yesterday...

    Cold Weather Testing | Progress Report | Rivian - Official Video

    Based on this shot I am very worried about glare on the instrument panel screen... Hopefully it won't be a problem. However, I wonder if the reason it is so close to the driver is because it's a touch screen that you can interact with. I doubt it but it'd be interesting to see how that would...

    Rivian Reaffirms First Deliveries in June 2021 Via New video!

    I like the high speed puddle run clip. Sarcasm incoming... From what I understand Tesla has a patent on "Bumper ejection during high resistance scenarios" like driving through a small puddle at speed. I think it's meant to make the car more efficient and increase range in those types of...

    Rivian confirms POWERED tailgate has now been KILLED

    This is a bummer but I get that they have to cut costs and complexity where they can. One thing about them being a start-up with no established service network is that the more complex a vehicle they make, the more things there are to break. This is something that can be added later and I don't...

    How much would you invest in a Rivian IPO?

    Honestly I might would just cancel my pre-order and invest the $1,000 for a year or two then pull it out and put it toward a Rivian at that point.

    Video: Real life look at R1S vs Ram 1500, GMC Terrain, Chevy Suburban [@ downtown Bloomington]

    Second observation after breaking away from the trance inducing wrap... I notice that the headlights double as the turn signal (which look awesome). However, I believe in the states that there is a requirement that a portion of it be visible from the side. I thought that the light on the wheel...

    Video: Real life look at R1S vs Ram 1500, GMC Terrain, Chevy Suburban [@ downtown Bloomington]

    I get the same sensation looking at this wrap as I do when I stare at camp fire or the ocean. It's memorizing.

    Rivian Amazon Van starts deliveries making lots of noise

    On the Model 3 the PWS is very easy to unplug. I plan to do this on any future EV I buy. Having a sound this loud is completely insane especially when the vehicle is stopped. Looks like EVs won't be helping reduce noise pollution in neighborhoods and city streets as much as we thought...

    Alone in Alabama?

    Fellow Alabamian checking in. My wife and I are currently on the list for a "Rivian Blue" R1T. We aren't sure if we'll go through with our order though. A lot is riding on (pun intended) the test drive, warranty, and service.

    There are a few Level 2 chargers in downtown Birmingham that are free and within walking distance of some good restaurants. It might not be much but it should give you the juice you need to get the Gulf at a comfortable speed!

    Start Planning Your Rivian Trips with A Better Trip Planner (ABTP) --FUN!!

    I am confident that it does. Below is a post by an ABRP employee giving details on the different levels of confidence that they place on vehicles based on the amount of real world data they have collected by their users...

    Start Planning Your Rivian Trips with A Better Trip Planner (ABTP) --FUN!!

    The app is also excellent. Keep in mind that the ABRP uses community data to make range predictions more accurate. This means that the current predicted range will likely change after the vehicles have been on the road for a while. You can also add data other than driving speed (i.e. temp...

    Rivian plans smaller models targeted for China and Europe

    Not to get political... but I don't understand how companies can on one hand fight so hard for social equality and justice here in the states and on the other turn to China and say "Yeah, we'd love to do business with you." I mean look at what China did to Hong Kong just last year and companies...
