Looking at those a second time, I see a few differences:
- no split window on the 2nd row
- the tow hooks on the front bumper
- reflectors in the wheel arches
- the driver-side charging port visible

A few of these we already know about and are confirmed, which makes me thing this rendering is more production-like than some others we've seen.

Exciting. Except for the quote of team members saying "we must deliver, not meeting the deadline is not an option..." I may be paraphrasing or taking these quotes out of context, yet I don't want the product to be force rushed. The implication is that there is a motivation to take short-cuts. Can Rivian address this concern? Thanks from a lay person.

Yes, exciting! The burnt orange is nice and reminds me of my John Cooper Works Mini color (darker burnt orange)....now I know what someone previous stated a 'root beer'. Also, had to chuckle when the one employee said to RJ that the headlights are 'ugly' and that RJ said 'they'll grow on ya.' They've grown on me. Can't wait to see more episodes and Rivian succeed.

Nice to see the video promotion efforts. Can't wait to see more/challenging off-road footage :).

Not to worry, they were talking about producing an amazing EV, not about timelines.

He meant the Rivian vehicles have to deliver as promised. A wonderful sentiment.

This definitely seems to be the most ‘production ready’ version that we’ve gotten a glimpse of so far! They’ve also mentioned tweaking the door handles slightly for production vs the prototypes. It appears the handles have been flipped with the dimple appearing on the opposite side. Not sure if that’d make them a little less awkward to open?

R. J.'s statement "Your first dollar of earnings comes after you've spent 3 billion" will be his epitaph.
