    Teslarati article states preorder contact has begun

    I was thinking the same thing. I also noted in this same article that the author states "For owners who want to repair their vehicles, Rivian has a mobile service. " We know that is not how the mobile service works, so I'm curious if this author is not 100% sure of what she is writing about...

    Teslarati article states preorder contact has begun

    An interesting comment seemingly straight from Rivian. https://www.teslarati.com/rivian-touchless-deliveries-return-policy-terms/ ByMaria Merano Posted on April 22, 2021 With customer deliveries of the R1T and the R1S poised to begin soon, Rivian seems hard at work to ensure that its first...

    Official: Rivian Experience – Purchasing, Return Policy & Charging

    You could always sell in a private sale where you're almost guaranteed to have a better return, but everyone's situation is different.

    Taking your R1T through an auto car wash

    I'm in the same boat! Even in the dead of winter, I'd much rather hand wash my vehicle than risk damage from an automatic wash. Granted, not everyone wants to or has the ability to do this, but it's my preferred method. On a side note- ever since I got a ceramic coating on my X, washing is...

    Taking your R1T through an auto car wash

    No way to tell until you actually tried this, but I would have to believe that all pertinent areas that would sustain damage from water would be completely sealed. With that being said, there are always going to be areas that are more prone to collecting water- these would have proper drainage...

    New Email with more info on Charging, Warranties, and Service.

    I agree. A lot of the questions and/or statements asked or made here don’t pertain to my wants or needs, but they obviously do to others. That’s great and more power to those that need certain things answered prior to purchase. At the end of the day- no one is forcing anyone to buy these...

    New Email with more info on Charging, Warranties, and Service.

    Let’s be honest- 99% of the questions on these forums could be answered by going to Rivian.com or *gasp* reaching out to the Rivian support by chat, email or for those that aren‘t afraid of actual interaction... a phone call.

    New Official Rivian Adventure Network and Charging Station Info

    My experience with new or non-EV owners is the “unrealistic” thought that the vehicles have to be charged to 100% every night and the time involved in completing this. I’ve had to explain to multiple people that “charging“ is based on needs. It’s not a phone or tablet which typically requires...

    New Official Rivian Adventure Network and Charging Station Info

    As it states in the release: You’ll be able to purchase the Rivian Wall Charger and set up installation when ordering your vehicle. If you finance your vehicle through us, you can also roll in the cost of the Wall Charger. No price has been released.

    Fast Charging Network Coming to Tennessee

    Thanks for the info, I'll have to remember this station during my next trip. Looking forward to hearing more about this endeavor.

    Fast Charging Network Coming to Tennessee

    I'm well aware of the EA chargers along I-40, but as I stated in E. TN, charging is spotty. I end up having to make an intermediate stop in Knoxville before heading further east. I've only found one Supercharger that had anything close to being able to handle towing a trailer- and honestly it...

    Fast Charging Network Coming to Tennessee

    This is awesome news! I routinely make the trip from Memphis to Butler, TN (about 30mins from Boone, NC) and as I'm sure you're well aware- charging in E. TN is spotty. The Supercharger network makes is pretty easy in our Model X, but I'd like to take my Rivian while potentially towing a...

    Official Rivian Merchandise Store Coming Soon

    It has more to do with changing their tax status than simply “choosing a vendor”.

    Revealing job postings - Rivian Insurance Agency and Global Collision Repair Program

    I want to say initially it was around $1200/yr, but it's gone down every 6 months when I renew.

    Revealing job postings - Rivian Insurance Agency and Global Collision Repair Program

    My premiums went up when I bought our 2018 Model X new, but it was expected. The next "youngest" vehicle in our household was 7 years old, so that's why I say it was expected. Tesla wasn't offering it's own insurance at the time so I stayed with our current provider, USAA. The premium has...

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

    You’ll quickly realize that 20% really isn’t that bad and you can push it a little further if need be. As far as charging overnight via a Level 2, my experience using Tesla destination chargers is they are usually on a 80 or 100amp circuit, so I’m getting 40-50miles per hour of charge. With a...

    Bloomberg Technology interview with RJ

    I took it as a seamless journey using the Rivian Adventure Network. RJ stated that the benefit of using their own network would be much easier for the company and the consumer, so maybe I'm reading too much into his statement, but I took it as maybe a more expansive network than what they have...

    Battery Upgrade?

    And there are other rapidly increasing networks available for the Tesla and other EV's, eg. Rivian. Not to mention the Adventure Network that has yet to be constructed.

    What We Know - Collecting Information Directly From Rivian

    Well, I wasn’t aware of the potential of the R1S LE being sold out when I spoke with Customer Engagement earlier, so I didn’t specify. The employee simply stated not to save any changes. I questioned the fact that the only option was to completely reconfigure the vehicle, and she understood...
