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.

Anyone in Jax receive theirs yet or expecting to soon? I really want to take a look at one in person!
No one has taken delivery that isn't a Rivian employee and definitely no one in the state of Florida as Rivian (started in Florida) has not completed a single one of the three locations in Florida yet (Tampa, Orlando, and Miami).

Be patient. Only Miami has an address. Tampa and Orlando are words on a careers page...

I was certain that Rivian would do a launch in Brevard county as homage to its roots. Guess I got that wrong.

If they did that would have been great seeing as I’m an hour away from there

I'd be happy if they'd do anything in the entire southeast. As it is, I'm thinking about flying to LAX just to go look at an R1T at the hub in Venice since I still haven't seen one of these things in real life.

I'll be doing just that the first weekend in December. Although, technically, the reason for my trip is to watch the Jaguars loose to the Rams.

It's Miami ... Hialeah to be exact, RIGHT by the Palmetto to make it worse. You're surprised there's a delay? I'm confused at why you don't understand there is a "delay" in Hialeah by the Palmetto. By nature alone that's an auto-inclusive. ?

Btw. 48. E.S | Palm Beach | R1T non-LE | Limestone | Forrest Edge | 20's

*grabs a snickers bar as this will take a while for it being a non-LE pre-order*

It's actually unincorporated miami-dade, not Hialeah. But what I'm surprised with is that the initial plans were submitted in May, they are working with a permit expediter so the review didn't take long, but the majority of the plans did not get approved and we're re-submitted just recently, don't know why it took so long to make changes to the plans, I'm guessing has to do with using a firm from Ohio instead of using a local firm that may have better ideas of the requirements for Miami-Dade

I’m very surprised they don’t plan to have a service center in palm beach initially. I figure that would be a big rivian area
