Nice view through open passenger door showing how the F.E. green interior seems near identical color/shade match with L.E. paint. I really like that "monotone" look but worried that if the shading was off a bit more it could look really bad.

Good question — like to know answer. Could be lighter or darker shade of same color and still look great.

This may have been posted before so apologies if redundant... but at the Sonoma event this week, one of the Rivian reps told the origin story of Launch Green.

According to her, that paint is what they originally used in the factory to paint the frame and other internal parts. Once the team saw the color on those components, they decided to productize it and make it available as a body color option.

(My guess is that, if this is true, they probably modified it somewhat -- the final version has a bit of metal flake in it, which seems like an odd choice for internal components... Anyway, thought I'd pass along.)

Thanks for sharing and makes sense. One of the earliest videos with a body had a crash test that I would guess was the origin of LG. And I have to say that was an uglier version. I am going with LG and I actually like it!

It was reportedly the color of the e-coat treatment which protects the aluminum.

Well, if they all come off the assembly line like THAT, we are in good shape. Beautiful.
Worth putting on that ceramic protection to preserve the sparkle and shine ASAP. 🙂
