Classic Rivian marketing strategy to not announce, discuss, disclose, etc. things (i.e. when deliveries are occuring despite them being days away) so that their customers can be misled or confused by potentially inconsequential communications by others.

I hope she's right - she's certainly connected enough to know, and I'm sure understands the difference between "rolled off the line" and "delivered." But this isn't quite the clear confirmation of a completed delivery that I'd expect.

I don't know, seems like more of a forum user issue than a Rivian issue....

A7/Q3 R1S ordered
The progress we are seeing is fantastic. Excited to hear how real world customers like the vehicle and for the R1S to roll off the assembly line. Love how everyone is so negative, major accomplishment from a young company.

Clearly a communication error: she is just posting a photo of the first deliverable vehicle to roll of the line. Rivian made a big deal about that particular milestone and they will surely do the same when they actually deliver the first vehicle(s).

A lot of speculation above. Just my two cents: Rivianmom isn’t a random person off the street with little to no experience with this company.

Her original post was that the first R1T was “personally delivered,” and it was later edited to what you see above.

It seems like awfully specific syntax to say it was delivered personally if she were conflating a delivery with a production vehicle coming out of the factory. She obviously doubled down on the delivery by editing the “personally” out (assuming at the behest of Rivian).

Anyways, I think that’s more than enough to reach the objective conclusion that she’s likely not confused and a delivery has been made.
