    R1S Delivery Begins in August (Per Rivian Customer Service Today)

    So what information should folks be basing their “financial and lifestyle decisions” on? Or should they simply not make any?

    R1S Delivery Begins in August (Per Rivian Customer Service Today)

    I think a lot has been learned from Tesla paving the way, so ramp up should be a bit faster for new companies following them. But I’d be shocked if Rivian produces more than 10,000 R1’s by this time next year. I’d say 6,000 is a more likely number.

    Rivian raises another $2.65 billion of investments. Company valued at $27.6 billion!

    Money begets money. In this type of business, it’s all about betting on whether they can keep raising more money until they starting generating revenue. Having name brand investors who keep doubling down is key. Tesla was literally days away from running out of money back in 2012. It could...

    Is This A Mall Cruiser…?

    I agree with you on the marketing. It’s similar to Range Rover - market a highly capable offroad vehicle to upper income buyers who want that image. Most Range Rover owners never take their rigs offroad. That being said, you should just ignore the marketing and look at the specs, appearance...

    The speed of "right". Does anyone really care when deliveries start?

    Hate to be a Debbie Downer, but I find that hard to believe. CS seems to keep doubling down on dates until they are given a new one. So what I’d read into that response is not that they are on track for those dates, but rather they haven’t been given a new date so they are going to tell you...

    Ok something different…Totem!

    Looks like an Alpha Romeo. The charging port that looks like a petrol fill cap is a nice touch since they are obviously trying to make it simulate an ICE vehicle.

    Alpha Superwolf

    Tried to reserve one, but the site hung after hitting submit. 🤦‍♂️ doesn’t cost anything, so why not.

    Alpha Superwolf

    I’m sure it’s not very efficient given the huge tires and Less than aerodynamic shape.

    R1T said Spring but now January ?

    Based on some other posts, it seemed like it changed for a very short amount of time before it was changed back.

    Alpha Superwolf

    I’d buy that assuming it had decent range.

    RJ says communication needs to be better... But what's the plan?

    It’s funny to me that the CEO comes out with a statement admitting they are not communicating well, and yet people on here are still defending their communication. 🤦‍♂️

    Rivian in Australia - Factory made or locally converted - Thoughts?

    Not to mention you’re below the equator, so the truck is also upside-down…. 🤔

    Minnesota Pre Orders

    I’m hoping similar for both WY and MT. I spend a lot of time in both states, and right now the non-Tesla L3 charging is almost non-existent. It’s the MaxPack paradox - need MaxPack now because charging isn’t there, but won’t need it when they start shipping it if charging is better. 🤷‍♂️ I...

    It was so cold in TX last winter that someone saw a politician with his hands in his own pockets. 😆
