    Real Rivian Photos & Videos

    The prototype posted seems to be a hodgepodge of parts. The interior pleather and front dash wood is ocean coast, but the center console wood/trim as well as the trim around the wood of the dashboard appears to be that of Black Mountain. While I love that there's finally some interior photos...

    Range visible in latest Rivian Story

    Maybe I'm being obtuse, but I'm new to EVs. Is power 'cleanliness' really a thing? I would have assumed that once the cells are charged to capacity, then where they received the charge from shouldn't matter. But you're saying that you could lose 2-3% of range based solely on your quality of...

    Who else is pissed that order # doesn't matter?

    Nor have I. From a logistics perspective, it makes sense. You want to be able to service what you sell. But, the service infrastructure could/should have been in place prior to deliveries starting. They even had an extra 6 (now 7) months to get prepared. Additionally, since the majority of...

    Who else is pissed that order # doesn't matter?

    Would you rather take delivery and when it breaks down you can't drive it for weeks or months because there is no service available anywhere near where you live? Order # DOES matter. It just matters less than infrastructure. The real question/issue for me is why infrastructure is trailing so...

    Rivian Service Centers / Retail Locations List / Other Facilities

    I'm R1T LE, but early 2020 reservation date. So, I doubt it will be me!

    Rivian Service Centers / Retail Locations List / Other Facilities

    Thanks for keeping us updated. This is 11 minutes from my house, so I'm quite pleased with the location they have hopefully finalized on. I know there shouldn't be much need to go there once we have vehicles in hand, but it's reassuring to have the service center so close by if a visit is...

    INTERIOR feature / details just posted at

    This what 36” of legroom looks like to 5’10” adult. I wouldn‘t describe that as comfortable.

    INTERIOR feature / details just posted at

    Really. I'm 6'3", and if I have an adult sitting behind me in the Volvo I have to move my seat up at least 4" to fit them in. And then both of us are uncomfortable. The Ram and F150 both have close to 10" more legroom than what the Rivian is stating they have. I know it's 2 different classes...

    INTERIOR feature / details just posted at

    If that's accurate, I'll probably have to take this vehicle off my list of options. That's less than any other vehicle I've owned, and is literally tiny. Less than my XC60, which is already a tight squeeze for 4 adults. Less than a CX5. Same size as a Q3, which is essentially a small...

    6-14 Through 6-21 What will we learn

    Do we really need 2 of these threads? I mean, even just one seems pointless anymore, since almost every week we learn exactly nothing.

    What will we learn 6/14 - 6/20?

    I think we'll only get details for the 21s, since those are most efficient according to Rivian. But, if we learn EPA is actually 325 miles, and someone likes the 20s better but also needs 300 miles, it could allow them to make the change. Does that make sense? Whereas if it comes in right at...

    Im hoping Rivian is making provision for new battery technology that may come out during the life of the vehicle

    Honestly, I think if being able to upgrade to a new battery technology in the Rivian later is of concern, you may want to hold off on buying. Not trying to be a dick. We just haven't seen anything that would indicate upgrading or swapping battery packs will be possible, much less an entirely...

    Rivian Guide Contacted Finally! (For Real) 📬

    It's all good. You're actually mostly correct. I think I said that it seems pointless to have more contacts happen until the guides are allowed to share more info, which isn't going to happen until July, according to some folks. So yes, I'm surprised they starting reaching out again this...

    Rivian Guide Contacted Finally! (For Real) 📬

    That was me, and I stand by it. For over a week there wasn't a single report across any platform of more guide contacts. It's clear that they've reached out again this week, and multiple people are reporting on it, just as I suggested would happen. When Guide contacts are occurring, we're...

    Door Pocket Mesh - Problem Solved?

    Hopefully this doesn't duplicate something already being discussed elsewhere. I know there's been much consternation over Rivian switching to a mesh door pocket in some of the test mules we've seen pictures of. I, too, would be upset if that details makes it into production. I noticed today...

    Rivian Guide Contacted Finally! (For Real) 📬

    If a guide contact meant either or both of those things, I'd be in agreement. So far, that does not appear to be the case. No order finalization/confirmation. And a very broad range of when you might see your delivery, with no hard dates.

    Rivian Guide Contacted Finally! (For Real) 📬

    It was confirmed by several Rivian employees, including the woman who did the 'Lunch and Learn" that Friday the 28th was the first day of Rivian Guide contacts. So it seems unlikely that your guide went rogue and started reaching out early. That said, some people did experience getting...
