2017 Tesla Model S 75, Rivian R1T Reservation Holder
As I stated in another thread, my wife and I recently returned to Florida from the New York Auto Show. After talking to some of the Rivian folks, especially Brian and Kristin, both Rivian employees(not Auto show actors), seeing both the R1S and R1T in person, I had to get on board. These products are amazing and both of us are extremely excited about the delivery of our R1T. With all that said, is there no one else besides me that has a pre-order in the state of Florida? Or just no one in the state of Florida that is as excited as I am? The fact that this company was started in Florida even....no? Ok.

The Updated list as of 05 October 2020:
  • Jimcgov3 | Jax | R1T
  • Hmp10 | Naples | R1S
  • BlindPass | Tampa | R1S

We're down in Port Orange. Own a Tesla and fortunate to have a Supercharger two miles from the house. I put a deposit on an R1S. We make the trip up to Jacksonville quite often since our son lives in Neptune Beach.

I'm in Naples. I have a Tesla Model S P90D and have put down deposits on both a Rivian R1S and a Lucid Air. I really, really like the Tesla as a driver's car but find its backseat too cramped for adults so have decided to try a different brand for my next EV.

I made the decision to go with a Lucid Air before I knew anything about Rivan. I live on a large lake that has rough driving trails around it that become inaccessible to my other cars during rainy season, and as I found out more about Rivian vehicles, I began to consider the R1S. Finally I decided to put down a deposit on it as well as the Lucid. They're probably going to hit the market at about the same time, so I'll not make my final decision until closer to order configuration time.

I could not make the trip to NYC for the auto show, and neither Lucid nor Rivian seems to have plans for the Miami auto show. Being able to see each vehicle in the flesh would help considerably.

R1T pre-order, Ford Expedition, Dodge Hellcat
Orlando area here and I just put a deposit on the R1T. Looking to replace my 2017 Tesla Model X P90. I have some issues with the Tesla and was looking to get both a pickup and a sports car. The R1T will fill both requirements! ( 0-60 in 3 seconds) I just hope some more DC chargers go up around Orange County..

There are some...a metric crap ton of Level 2s. I'm up in Jax. Surprisingly We have 9 DCFCs in the greater Jax area.

Greetings. Just made a deposit on the R1T and I live in Tallahassee. I currently drive a RX 450 F-Sport Hybrid and am very excited about this new truck coming on the market!

Welcome to the forum. When we all take delivery we need to do a meet and greet at a central location.

I personally do not mountain bike, but I am sure that we can all agree on something besides the vehicles to gather over...I know most would never turn down good food, drink, and conversation...

Indeed! Now, if someone would buy the cook station, we can make this a party :)

So far we have Naples, Jax, Tally, Port Orange, Orlando...I am actually surprised there are none in the Miami or Tampa area, and single reservation holders in each of these areas at that...Although could just mean that those in our areas and others just aren't forum visitors...which is a shame.
