    1st deliveries in November says my Rivian Guide. Communication from RJ expected today

    Sure was a hell of a lot of words and over-explaining to communicate what sounded like effectively you trying to convince yourself you didn’t make a compromise by getting something other than a Rivian. Good luck with the weird BMW, man. We’ll all continue being patient over here…

    Tesla to open Supercharger network to other EVs

    All I can say as a current Tesla owner is: take everything Elon says on Twitter these days with an absolutely massive grain of salt.

    Camp Kitchen Frustrations? Anyone else?

    You sir, are completely clueless. This comment made me laugh though.

    Camp Kitchen Frustrations? Anyone else?

    You don't just throw more people at a singular project and expect it to get done faster infinitely the more people you throw at it. It is completely incorrect to suggest that the team that designed the Camp Kitchen would have been the differentiator between them delivering on time or not.

    1st deliveries in November says my Rivian Guide. Communication from RJ expected today

    In all seriousness, the line in the email that matters the most to me is this "I have spent a lot of time in the R1T and R1S in just about every conceivable environment, and I am excited for you to experience the combination of refinement, capability and performance – it will be worth the...

    1st deliveries in November says my Rivian Guide. Communication from RJ expected today

    So hilarious how people consider Rivian to be terrible in this regard, despite all the videos on YouTube over the years and Rivian stories and emails. Have you seen what they do at Tesla with their future products? The Cybertruck was announced in 2019 and there has been literally zero...

    1st deliveries in November says my Rivian Guide. Communication from RJ expected today

    For everyone who was expecting deliveries this year, I can definitely see how a potential delay would be a bummer. But for someone like me who reserved only this March and isn’t planning or expecting delivery until late 2022, I still think these vehicles are worth the wait because of how great...

    1st deliveries in November says my Rivian Guide. Communication from RJ expected today

    To be fair, if you're really choosing between an R1S and a Highlander, that's like comparing apples and oranges. The Rivian is a premium luxury vehicle with tons of capability and features, and IMO is several leagues above a Highlander in every way. I would personally never step down to...

    Video: Rivian in paint shop - posted by RJ Scaringe 🎉

    Interesting detail I noticed: the gear tunnel doors seem to be (temporarily) mounted to the bed rails so that the paint robots have easy access to them. That’s a cool solution to that. Once the truck gets to general assembly, I’m sure workers just remove them and attach them to the actual gear...

    News this week?

    I remember Guides telling people that “starting in July, weekly educational emails will be sent”. This is technically the first full week of July, so let’s see what we get tomorrow or Friday!

    Still getting ready…

    The fact that this thread is implying that production cannot possibly begin while robot installation is still occurring is laughable. You guys have no idea how manufacturing works. They’ll be continuing to expand the factory for YEARS following initial deliveries!

    Great input. The areas I care about most are the front and hood, but also the tailgate I think would be pretty important too since so much can be kicked up on it and/or rest on it. I was worried about the lower perimeter around the car since that's definitely something that shows wear on my...

    Any idea how much a PPF costs? I'd really like to full-body PPF my R1T, assuming it's not outrageously expensive. I've never done PPF on one of my vehicles so I don't know costs. I was initially considering only the front and hood, but realized that with a truck like this that will see a lot...

    Rivian Service Centers / Retail Locations List / Other Facilities

    I have a feeling that Phoenix address is just a temp address that they registered with the state with years ago when they first started operations in AZ and that actual addresses for service centers haven’t been revealed. I live close to that address and it just doesn’t make any sense why...

    New interview with hiring info

    Most likely just a simple typo and they meant to say “later”. Put the pitchfork down, don’t need it today 🙂

    So annoying how everyone just fills every thread now with random garbage discussion that nobody cares about. Rivian needs to give us more info so we can all shut the hell up and stop speculating and dithering so much 😄
