Only photos from the various events that I'm aware of. These should help:

Lunar Rock and Black Mountain

Forest Edge
Well these are the closest I've seen to a complete view of the interior of the frunk. Still missing a complete view of the drivers side... What I still don't see are any power ports and an emergency release button/cable. I realize these are older prototypes/versions of the vehicles but I am really hoping power makes it into the frunk. I have not found any firm mention of it other than Rivian talking about a possible custom frunk fridge at some of the early events.....

In a separate thread, someone suggested another interior color palette is needed. (Maybe it was me. I forget who, but I was part of the discussion.) Something sandy, tan, and sandstone/taupe in my opinion. Why?

The current swatch colors, especially the accent colors, are mostly dark. If you don't want a mostly dark interior, you're left with one choice - Lunar Rock. And aside from the upholstery and wood trim in Lunar Rock, the accent colors are mostly dark.

Lunar Rock is nice, don't get me wrong, but it might be too light as a reflective surface and it might be harder to keep clean. Something tan, sandy with shades of grey and/or taupe might not reflect as much light or be as hard to keep clean while, at the same time, not be too dark. Call it Prairie Fields or something similar.

In short, 4 interior palettes might better fit with 8 exterior colors. Exterior browns, like the prototype build pickups, dark and light blues, forest green, white and silver might match well with a tan/sandy/taupe interior palette and be an alternative to Lunar Rock as a light color interior. So, in terms of color matching, 4 interior palettes would better match with 8 exterior colors.

People that live in warmer climate do not want a dark interior. They really need a tan option

While I understand what you are saying, I definitely prefer darker interiors and I live in south FL. Dirt doesn’t show like it does on tan / lighter interiors.

Again, it's a matter of choices.

We have darker interior palettes, but only one lighter palette and even that has dark accents. Tans, browns, sandstone and taupe would offer something in between Black Mountain and Lunar Rock. Forest Edge doesn't really go very well with some expected exterior color choices. Green and blue - kind of a clash; green and brown - not really, depending on the tones; black and green, and so on.

The point is another interior palette on the lighter side in predominately sandy, brown and tan colors and tones would broaden the matching options between 8 exterior and 4 interior colors.

Maybe something similar to this photo. The older I get, it seems I see better in a lighter environment.

Long time listener......first time post.......

I agree on the previous about another interior color template, perhaps two more honestly.

@electruck - thanks for the directions to the additional photos, I saw the Black Mountain interior.

I like it . . . mostly. A bit too much of the orange accent for my taste. Mostly the stitching stands out as an odd choice to make orange, although the orange buckles in the pockets behind the front seat seems off, too. Strange that orange doesn't show up in the Black Mountain palette swatch.

Not really a fan of the other color schemes either. Hmmm.

I agree with earlier comments that another interior color palette would be good, given that the existing interior color options don't seem to pair well with more than one or two of the exterior color options. Probably a little late to be wishing for a fourth interior color, given the proximity (we hope!) to the generation of production vehicles.

Just took a more careful look at the swatches. A small bit of orange does show up in each one. Guess that is the signature Rivian accent color. I like orange in the logo and brakes, the other orange accents not so much.

Rivian calls this "orange" you speak of, "Fusion Gold" if memory serves me correct.

Sadly, I can't buy a Rivian sight unseen with these color choices. I really hope, hope, hope it is my monitor. On my screen that green is ugly. Looks like lichen instead of like leaves. And it will only match green, black or white exteriors.

It's possible I can go with the Lunar Rock, but I don't want to.

Please give us pretty interior colors instead of 'fashion designer' color schemes!

Yeah, the green is fine for a show car but kind of a wasted color in production - especially with their very limited color palette. I agree a tan or taupe would have been a better choice for them. It will be interesting to see how many people actually choose the green interior.

I’ll likely be going with Mountain Black, just out of habit. Every car I’ve ever owned (except for my Atacama V70R) has had a black interior, and everything else just looks weird to me at this point

What color interior is in the LA Auto Show Car? It’s hard to tell the real color because of the bright lights.
