    Chicago Tribune Article With Great Factory Updates and Photos!

    It seems a bit disconcerting at this point in time that they still look like they are hand-building units one at a time? Unless maybe that is their plan and to slowly implement the actual production line over the rest of the year? Their alignment process looks extremely basic. I'm hoping they...

    What We Know - Collecting Information Directly From Rivian

    I had thought how great it would be also to have an electric cooler in the concern was how do you disperse the heat? This is the response I got from Bryan (CS). In terms of the front trunk, there is a 12v outlet that can found in this area of the vehicle, however, there is not a...

    I asked Rivian a month or so ago, if similar to the new Ford F-150 Hybrid if I could power some items in my camper? Actually, the F-150 could power everything including my A/C. The response I got back was there are only 2 -110 outlets in the bed and no it is only meant to power small...

    V2H Bi-Directional Charging

    I saw a few of us had an interest in using our Rivian's as battery backup for our homes, especially for areas prone to storms and power outages. I found this product today and I've reached out to the company to see if it's actually on the market yet. This unit can deliver up to 10 kW peak...

    What EV Charger will you Buy?

    Do any of know. So my situation living on the coast of NC, hurricanes. I have a smaller back up generator and lock out main panel, so I can run on NG and power most everything. V2H would be awesome, simpler and possibly more power than I currently have. What is required from Rivian to make...

    Rivian's impact on Normal [CNN article]

    If Rivian succeeds, and I believe they will, they will only be the 2nd New American Auto company (Tesla being the 1st) in 100 years! Being from the midwest, I love what they have done in Normal, IL!

    Potential place in production/delivery line!

    I have pre-order on R1T Max... I asked the same thing since it’ll be into 2022 at least before I get a truck. Would I be contacted by a Rivian guide? the CS said yes sometime in May. I was thinking not until 2022.

    Vent, B!tch & Moaning for the mis-"Guided"

    Well said. I doubt RJ has ever been camping, thus he imagines camping in a R1S carring no gear with you. It's all marketing hype.

    Can we talk about range again?

    I have an R1T Max on Pre-order. My guesstimate for travel is ~240 miles of max range, so in-line with your estimate.

    Powering my RV A/C

    Per Rivian’s web site and confirmed with CSR, the bed of the R1T only has 2-110 outlets. Any thoughts on why no 20 or 30 amp (TT-30R) outlet? It seems like a big missed opportunity. I’d love the ability to plug in my small camper while traveling or overnight parking.

    HAVE YOU HEARD FROM RIVIAN YET?? "Rivian has begun notifying R1T reservation holders"

    Just the email today. I did chat with Caitlin @ Rivian today. I said I have a pre-order on a R1T but for a Max pack. I said, I still have a ton of questions, will I be waiting until 2022 to get more answers? She said I would still hear from a Guide in May even though I'm not a LE customer.
