    Attending Fully Charged Live in Austin?

    Thanks for sharing your updates! Regarding color(s), in line with what I heard last October at the Normal event. (Fan of these color options!) Thanks for enlightening them to improve their communications. I've previously attempted the same. I hope others continue to politely inform them of...

    Rivian Air Suspension

    From the "prototype" vehicle spec sheet that has been circulating at least since Rivian did their reveal in Nov 2018 indicates both EAVs for all 3 battery pack options has a GVWR of 7650 lbs. I suspect Rivian figured this value would change (and I also suspect it has) as they make tweaks to the...

    In addition you can watch a video posted on Twitter that demonstrates this along with a discussion on the feature in this thread - Watch Alexa Open the Rivian R1T Frunk

    Captains Chairs in middle row?

    So the R1S has storage under the entire second row of seats? Don't recall hearing that before other than on the R1T. Nice.

    Windshield Wiper Fluid Dispensers

    Not really, but someone else did and I found the question amusing. So I remembered to asked a Rivian rep while attending the Normal event last October. He said and pointed to a compartment within the frunk on the driver side that there is a removable panel where you get access to fill the...

    So in Illinois, will R1T be Class B while R1S gets passenger plates?

    The Illinois Secretary of State for vehicles states the following for B-Truck license plates: "Availability B-truck license have staggered annual renewals are displayed on trucks and vans weighing 8,000 pounds or less, sport utility vehicles and antique trucks. Eligible for Benefit Access...

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

    Well, to muddy the waters some ... When I attended the Normal event last October I had spoken with the R1S team lead (with company for years) and I asked about the R1S spare tire. He confirmed not only it will be a full sized spare tire (he also said "how can you not have one with an off-road...

    Rivian invests $750 million in Normal plant

    "Rivian invests $29.4 million in Normal plant" And they only spent $16m for the plant. Talk about capital improvements!

    So No Deliveries in 2020?

    And perhaps sooner. I asked a Rivian rep (R1S team lead) at the Normal event last October when 3rd party crash testing would start. He said as early as 2Q 2020. So that still seems in line with targeting a December 2020 production launch.

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

    Sounds like Rivian hasn't really changed anything regarding the roof. For a while now the FAQ section of the Rivian website has stated there will be 4 roof options. "We will offer multiple roof styles including electrochromic glass (which turns from opaque to transparent on demand), a fixed...

    So No Deliveries in 2020?

    I haven't seen anything official from Rivian other than this tweet back in November 2019: However, a few days ago (Jan 23rd) MotorTrend posted an article stating: "Rivian bought the Normal plant from Mitsubishi in 2017 for $16 million and is preparing it to make an interesting assortment of...

    Lower than previously announced pricing coming according to Reuters (69k for mid range)!

    Same author for both articles - Jane Lanhee Lee. (Copied from my entry in a separate thread) That certainly would be welcomed news but I get the sense this reporter may have gotten her notes slightly mixed up. Here is the first two paragraphs from the above article: MILL VALLEY, California...

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

    Yes, great shot! There has been some confusion (at least for me ) if the R1S has (or will have) the "3 USB-C and 3 110V outlets" like in the back of the R1T bed on the driver-side. Did you or anybody else happen to notice them on the R1S and their placement? Similarly for the air compressor...

    Rivian says to expect prices lower than previously announced

    That certainly would be welcomed news but I get the sense this reporter may have gotten her notes slightly mixed up. Here is the first two paragraphs from the above article: MILL VALLEY, California (Reuters) - Electric vehicle startup Rivian on Saturday displayed its pickup truck and SUV at...

    So No Deliveries in 2020?

    When I spoke with the R1S team lead at the Normal event this past October he said they are working on the online configurator and should be available in April 2020. Now whether that holds up or not and if it will be available to the general public or just pre-order holders, I guess will just...

    So No Deliveries in 2020?

    RJ has previously said he estimates producing 20k to 40k vehicles in the first full year (2021). In many articles posted today Rivian has stated production will start in December 2020. So even with the most optimistic, dare I say unrealistic, projection of vehicles produced in 2020 ( 40,000 /...

    Mercedes cutting EQC production due to battery shortage

    I truly hope that's the case, however, I still put "contractually" into the category of "best laid plans" and you know what they say about that.

    New Motortrend article details Rivian's production plans for Ford, Amazon and own vehicles

    Absolutely. RJ has been quoted that they estimate 20k to 40k in first full year (2021). I read somewhere even a 2020 estimate but I don't recall where. IIRC it may have been 5k but that was based on a full 4Q (3 months) of production. Clearly that's no longer the case for 2020. Sources...

    Attending Fully Charged Live in Austin?

    I was hoping to attend the Fully Charged event but as I suspected it's during an annual family ski trip. It would be nice to meet up with forum members so I hope Rivian plans on hosting and/or attending a few more events prior to production, especially if they offer test drives...
