Anybody else want a Parade mode?
My Rivian will be in the holiday parade this weekend and I sure wish I could have some features enabled while travelling sub say 15 mph
Full Camp Lighting
Drive with Gear tunnel open
Cool Exterior Lighting options
Unrestricted Tank Turn (When Available)...
For those who think MT is completely in Rivians pocket.
I personally agree with almost all his complaints. I did not enjoy my buying process.
My purpose here is to inform on my personal experience to help others avoid what happened to me.
The service team from Rivian was outstanding in just about every way going above and beyond in a difficult situation.
The first problem:
Upon delivery of my R1T I noticed that when I dropped my kid...
As my delivery is approaching I have heard advice that having accounts for charging networks setup ahead of time is a good idea.
Rivian connects to the Chargepoint Network, which I THINK gives access to Electrify America chargers. Hopefully at the same discounts?
I have no idea who else...
This is interesting. I need to handle 4 bikes with the Rivian so I am keen to find the most efficient way to do so.
First I have seen about a mounting system for the bed/tailgate.
Many things are covered with the hitch and Yakima racks but what are factory options you would like to see.

I am an optimist at heart, what does the hive mind think about how to share our new rides when we get them?
The first few will obviously get their own detailed posts from those generous individuals who take the time to review them for us.
But as deliveries ramp up should we just post in the...
This is a take on who will be first in meaningful production. I found his position on Rivian a little harsh and dismissive.
To be fair BEV startups should be viewed with strong skepticism.
For the record I am...
This seems to be written by someone who is at least aspiring to be a journalist with their own perspective to go with the talking points. Im not inferring Pulitzer here but I enjoyed it.

While I am WAY too proud of my parallel parking abilities, and this function is not on my wish list per-se, self-parking is becoming much more standard these days.
I cant find any documentation on the R1T having this ability. Anyone seen anything?
My instinct is this is going to be more of an...
