Even though 5G is not generally available, Rivian should include 5G capability in vehicles to be delivered this summer. I certainly plan to have the R1T for years and during that time 5G should become more and more available. 5G is slated to be 100 times faster than 4G. See 5G vs 4G: what’s the difference? | Thales Group . Seems-out-of-line for a top-of-the-line vehicle to come with obsolescent technology.

I am sure that as long as Rivian builds out their products to be easily upgradeable (which I am sure they will be) that will be a quick replacement if 5G doesnt make it to the vehicles by the time the first deliveries make it to us.

I would guess the next product or next couple of years they will be putting 5G in their cars. There are very few automakers with it built in so far, only one upcoming I can think of is the BMW iX.
