Yeah that is right, I preferred the ADAS on the EV6 because it was available anywhere it could see the lines and then the lane changes, interface and reliability.

I did not trade the EV6 in, I didn’t even have the title yet. I tried selling it myself between forum posts and autotrader and didn’t have a lot of luck but then I called around to the local Kia dealerships and one was willing to meet my price which was nice because they took care of the lien and other things which made it easy. Carvana gave a decent offer as well.

With the low inventory for EV6 models out there you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a buyer (assuming you can swing both at the same time). I in some ways regret selling it.
Makes sense, am hoping Rivian has a fair trade for it to simply lower the tax burden. I don't expect to take delivery until middle of next year so not too worried about it either way. I really am overly impressed with the EV6; I did not expect to "like" a Kia and planned on using it simply as a stepping stone vehicle while awaiting the R1T. But now when I get the R1T I'm sure I'll compare and be annoyed that the Kia did certain things better 🤣

Just called State Farm yesterday about my future R1T. $648 for six months, which actually is less than I thought it would be. (was hoping it would be cheaper but was being realistic!)
Are you including home insurance too--in a package?

I am not. I know this would probably make the R1T premium a bit less.

Received a quote from SF yesterday for upcoming (not very sOOn) R1S. $634/6 months - multi-auto and multi-line (i.e. home and umbrella) discounts.

For reasons I won't go into, I have two companies insuring my many autos. My homeowners insurance is with the other company.

So I just called my other insurance company, Allstate, and they told my premium would go UP $1100 for 6 months so $2200/ year to insure the R1T!!!! And this is with homeowners and multi vehicle discount with them! So I am going with State Farm for sure!

This one, that one and the other one.
Enjoy it while you can. Appears insurance companies don't know what they're dealing with yet. My first Tesla was cheap, then the premiums went up 4 times the original premium within 3 years. Finally switched to Tesla insurance which is much more reasonable. I assume the Rivian premiums will increase over time as well.

My 2015 Tesla 70D is $815/6mo with USAA. Their quote for replacing it with a Rivian lowered the six month premium to the low $600s. But then I added options (like 20% over replacement cost reimbursement for a totaled vehicle) that brings me to $731/6mo. Still less than a seven year old Tesla.
