yup, given the info out there, I guess I just tied in 300+ as selectable at ordering to 400.First page & panel of the R1S info:
Across the hottest and coldest places — from 130F to -25F — our battery system has been developed to give you the confidence to explore. We are launching with our seven seat, 300+ mile range R1S. After launch, we’ll announce the timing of our 250+ mile and longer range R1S, also with seven seats.³
And apparently Rivians strategy of encouraging magazines to provide misinformation has backfired (at least with one person). I actually don't understand the theory that this practice would benefit them at all.
If one is fooled perhaps you have to assume that there will be more, particularly since there are no retail locations to connect with.
In any event, I just cancelled my order.
FWIW: remember, you folks should be acting as evangelists and be welcoming of folks since they just won’t have your info at hand.
5+ years ago I received a very early vin Tesla Model X. I spent a considerable amount of time answering questions (even the “dumb” ones) to provide potential buyers with the info they would need to gauge appropriateness for their needs.
This site and its members should do the same.
In any event, a $1,000 back in my pocket and one less sale for Rivian.
