    This is not the company website... The only way to order is to order online the Rivian Company website is There may be a way to contact them on that website.

    Our own "configurator" Thread

    Thinking about the options for these vehicles let's discuss how we are going to configure ours... Based on what I "think" I know... This is my configuration. R1S 180 kWh Color - Decidedly UnDecided (Charcoal Grey might be my first choice though if available) Electrochromic Glass Roof (at...

    R1S vs R1T Decision: Help...and Let's Play

    The only thing I can think of that I actually considered was the cool factor of the Tunnel Kitchen and other possible features that will make these vehicles unique.... If I were younger and prepared to tent or roof camp I would be all over that tunnel kitchen. However, as my daily driver I...

    R1S vs R1T Decision: Help...and Let's Play

    Here's how I break it down (full disclosure - I am firmly in the R1S camp) 1. carrying people & animals vs carrying stuff - R1S = 2, R1T = 1 2. vehicle security (fully metal enclosed vs tonneau covered bed) R1S = 1.5, R1T =1.5 (Kind of not concerned with either option here but hoping for...

    Repairs and warranty work where?

    As far as I know nothing official has been announced. The ideas "floating" around are maybe a partnership with Cox or Ford for service centers or they may role out a service where they come to you. It's a big question that will have to answered before the cars start rolling off the assembly line.

    What we might see in that configurator: Options, Launch Edition, etc...

    I think the most recent kind of official statement was sometime "summer 2020". I imagine the shutdown does not need to make this date slip, however, I wonder if Rivian will delay the launch of the configuration tool purely due to the fact that the delivery date is definitely slipping into...

    Let's talk about charging on long distance travel?

    I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for the continued discussion... As a person completely new to BEV's I am learning a bunch about what to look for and how to understand the different aspects to consider when talking about vehicle range and charge rates..... When doing long distance...

    Rivian colors samples from recent video

    yes - I like it.... I think it's probably too late but I wish the rear windows were factory tinted... I'm not a huge fan of window tint film...

    What Will you do when you Take Delivery?

    For what it's worth... Route 66 goes through Normal, IL. I am probably just going to make my way back to Austin but I will certainly drive some of Route 66 instead of the interstates working my way back home. Being that I'm late to the party I figure I have plenty of time to figure out a...

    Rivian To Decline $1 Million Grant From Normal

    Nice article... I especially like the part where they discuss workers returning to the plant on Monday! It's a small step towards re-opening... but I also want them all to stay safe... don't rush it... but am looking forward to the build out resuming safely!

    When Did You Pre-Order Your Rivian?

    I realize I'm late to the game.... but I finally put in an order today. I've spent the last 3 weeks reading as much as I could and I know they are now a bit behind schedule. Truth is I will be happy if I get the SUV around the end of 2021 or even early to mid 2022... Now I just need to hope...

    Campers and Roof Rack Tents

    I would think within "reason" it should be self leveling. My 2000 LX470 had self leveling front/back (not left/right)

    Campers and Roof Rack Tents

    I guess it really just depends on what people are going to do with the vehicle. So I am R1S all the way..... however, I have always been an SUV type. I absolutely loved my LX470 but the gas mileage was abysmal. While the R1T has some super cool features there is one feature I am, hoping for...

    Swapping out battery packs

    First - I realize that the battery pack is one of the most expensive parts of the car (if not the single most expensive part/group of parts). Things "I think" we already know: Rivian does not intend to support upgrades from smaller battery packs to larger battery pack. The battery packs are...

    Rough Calculation of Rivian Orders, Delivery Times

    Most of your logic makes sense to me, however, I'm afraid that deliveries are going to slip further than you have assumed. Granted I have only been following Rivian for a few weeks, it sure seems like they are going to slip well into Q2 or maybe even Q3 of 2021 for initial deliveries. My...
