    San Francisco Rivian Event [Updated with impressions, info, photos]

    I was going to post photos, but all of yours (all) are better than mine :) No CarPlay is very odd...I use Waze all the time, and listen to music via Spotify....obviously take calls & texts. Not married to CarPlay, and would certainly jump if something better, but to date not much else is...

    San Francisco Rivian Event [Updated with impressions, info, photos]

    Just got back myself, they set it up fairly well, but yeah a little more 'rustic' than the shows I've seen before. The truck was the Blue and the SUV was white. Both looked absolutely awesome. No real new info. Lots of people and lots of excitement. One major upside of the location was free...

    San Francisco Rivian Event [Updated with impressions, info, photos]

    Funny location. Its being held at a really small surf shop in Mill Valley (which as some know is not San Francisco, but on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge)...definitely the affluent outdoor/professional market. Curious what this is going to look like. I can't imagine this will look...

    Rivian Crossover

    Cool! The renderings of the Rally are not my style at all...Hopefully they have further offering that are little more sleek and a little less teenager/RC car style...:). Audi/Model S/Porsche/Ferrari would be my preferred design directions lol

    Rivian Crossover

    I don't really want to get into semantics about the definition of a crossover lol.... But, I would be super into a station wagon or smaller 4 door SUV...200"+ vehicles are too big (in my opinion) for urban environments. GM just EXTENDED the Tahoe/Yukon to 210" - strikes me the last vestiges of...

    What would you like to see on your new Rivian or from the Rivian company??

    And back to our regularly scheduled program...:p This may already be a feature, but some sort of sync w/ an alarm clock on iOS/Android, or time to leavee to get the car warmed up or cooled down. Getting in to a pre-warmed, cooled car every time would be awesome. Has that been discussed? I...

    I am not sure how long you have been on the internet, but those are the last words of someone taking a thread about "What would you like to see on your new Rivian or from the Rivian company??" quickly down the drain...It's all good :)

    What would you like to see on your new Rivian or from the Rivian company??

    I might have added this prior, but probably deserves a single post callout IMO - the bike mounting on SUVs could certainly use a revolutionary approach. On top of SUV's is a hassle especially for less strong/tall folks (of either gender)...Hitch mounts are a PITA opening the tailgate and they...

    What would you like to see on your new Rivian or from the Rivian company??

    I say this having a pre-order and a giant EV fan... To date, I would not be buying any EV if towing beyond 120 miles was a requirement with any elevation climb. Boat ramp 15 miles away, trailer 2 hours out of town flat maybe, but if I was planning on trailering long distances a lot I would be...

    Captains Chairs in middle row?

    Funny when I see the absence of the transmission tunnel - it screams a place for women to put their purse. Maybe I have not been in enough cars but most women carry purses, and 9/10 times when they are driving they hand it to me! I don't have a place for it either! Lol. Rivian has an ideal...

    What would you like to see on your new Rivian or from the Rivian company??

    The tailgate ramp the Tesla Cybertruck has is slick. Easily get/wheel/slide things into the bed. Copy that Rivian! Ha, even a mini-winch option to pull stuff up so we don't have to :p

    Tesla Truck Unveiling 11/21

    What you are saying makes a lot of sense. But "sense" and buying a Rivian at this point are not totally related. So if that is your primary metric for a decision to purchase, I can see your point. I want a capable 4wd EV, like the company, and am willing to put up with a lot of shenanigans...

    The Rivian Demographic??

    The young/sporty marketing is a good idea. We all want to be (or at least look :) young and sporty. I'm early 40's and forget that until I throw my back out lol. There is also a lot of tech wealth being generated in some areas, and those people have the dough to buy one of these...but agree...

    What would you like to see on your new Rivian or from the Rivian company??

    You may be in that group that will use the volumous storage and all 7 seats. When I see a sample of people driving, out of the many many 100's thousands daily around here, which is most often to work, I see exactly 1 person in the car 90% of the time. lol. The concept of bigger = better/more...

    What would you like to see on your new Rivian or from the Rivian company??

    1. HUD 2. For the R1S, would be cool to have some sort of integrated bike rack that does not make the car longer. The tire mount racks save space when parking, maybe Rivian could add some sort of boss to the back for such a bike rack without the tire. The hitch mount racks are no ideal for me...
