That was written by a guide team member (or other marketing/non-engineer)... was never true, and will never be true. :D
at various points I have been R&D, process designer, DFMA troubleshooting go to guy… I keep sales/customer service people locked out of my space 🤗

This is a funny thread now lol
I see a lot of Lyft rides in your future.

In all seriousness, Rivian really should give you a discount or one hell of a "we're sorry, we fucked up in a really shitty way" gift that's not a mug and a sweatshirt.

I just recollected when they introduced guides:
https://stories.rivian.com/rivian-guides

That story did not age well :D
" Our Guide Team is located in Normal, Illinois, right in our factory. Their individual stories help paint the picture for our customers, sharing their genuine excitement for Rivian and anticipation for the start of deliveries. And since they sit just steps from our assembly line, it’s easy for them to walk right over to an engineer — maybe even RJ — to get you the information you need. "
it would be refreshing if a company DIDN'T post this kind of horse shit. Everyone can see through the folksy small company nonsense. No guide is walking up to an engineer ever.

Happiness is expectations minus reality, …
Did you skip the buddhist math class? That is disappointment. Happiness is Reality minus Expectations ;) Sorry couldn’t help it. Waiting for a Rivian, we need to get this right,
