    Financing options?

    I appreciate your concern, and also @DucRider. I’ve already requested a refund on my deposit, and am moving on. I’m not sure what I’m going to do, but will definitely be getting an EV. I’ve learned a lot from this forum regarding EV’s, and will continue to monitor it. Thank you!

    Financing options?

    Well, I found out, through emails from Customer Support, that both leases and a subscription program are not options at this time. I was also told we can’t use a third party leasing company. The options are cash, finance through Rivian Financial Services (RFS), a bank or credit union...

    Wish List - Rivian Adventure Network (RAN) locations

    @stephenheuer - Wondering how you like your e-tron? I was thinking of one, but no third row. Still might get a used one while waiting on the R1S.

    Trade ins?

    You're correct. From the Support Center: Will you offer leasing? No, we will not offer leasing as a purchase option at this time. You can however apply for financing through us, or bring your own. We’ll help you finalize your purchase method as we approach production and start accepting...

    Trade ins?

    From the Support Center, under How does delivery work?, yes they will be taking trade-ins. "As production begins and we approach first deliveries we will be in touch to help you prepare for delivery based on your configuration, location and when you placed your preorder. At that time, you can...

    Software and Rivian App wishlist

    In the Support Center, under ”How Does Delivery Work?”, it sounds like they will have this feature. “On delivery day you can track your vehicle’s journey through the Rivian app and upon arrival set it up as a digital key so you can immediately get on the road.”

    roof shade/cover?

    I was just on the phone with Rivian, and asked whether the tint will change from light to dark. The answer was no, it is one shade, and will not change, and there will be no sliding shade option.

    Bloomberg Technology interview with RJ

    Thanks for posting this @electruck. One interesting piece I heard RJ say, was regarding the chargIng infrastructure. Using an example of a trip from the Bay Area to Tahoe, he said it will be seamless, without having to deal with a credit card payment. It wasn’t clear to me if that means using...

    This quote, from the website, seems to verify what you’re hoping @skyote. “Sound feels three-dimensional through the use of cabin correction technologies and acute frequency control.”

    Rivian Configurator is Up For Reservation Holders! Share Your Build / Configuration Inside

    They called back and determined it was a problem on they’re end with my account. They also had me use Chrome instead of Safari, and it worked. I was able to configure my R1S.

    Rivian Configurator is Up For Reservation Holders! Share Your Build / Configuration Inside

    Anyone else having trouble getting into the configurator? I've reset my password numerous times, but still continue to get an error message. I've contacted support, but haven't heard back from them. It's been frustrating! I wonder if my email invitation has the clue. It doesn't have my name...

    Configurator Strategy?

    I thought someone in the forum asked customer support when the emails would go out, and was told 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. CST. Maybe I just dreamt that!

    Audio system specifics? Amplifier, subwoofer, etc?

    Anyone know what they mean by this description of the audio system? Makes me wonder if it will have active noise cancellation? “Sound feels three-dimensional through the use of cabin correction technologies and acute frequency control.”

    Rivian ford partnership to resume

    I’m with Rivian! I think it does make business sense for Ford to add another EV into their lineup, and hopefully will allow more people to get into an electric vehicle.
