A fair amount of outdated info on the R1S in that article. Some of the obvious to those of uss on this forum:

  • Max Pack (or Mega-Pack in their terminology) with 400+ miles not going to be offered
  • HP and torque numbers
  • Vehicle width (but Rivian just corrected their own site today)

Yeah, sadly people don't do their homework before writting an article.

Did I miss something? Max Pack won't be offered right away with LE - but will be an option in the future (2022?). Is that correct?

A longer range pack, but specifically doesn't call it the Max Pack.

Not on the R1S.
They are working on a larger pack with more range, but it won't be the "Max Pack" (formerly 180 kWh) nor will it achieve 400+ miles of range.

www.rivian.com/r1s, where it talks about range under the capability tab...

...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"

How can anyone compare a Model X to either of these 2 "real" SUVs. Who would take a Model X rock crawling? It would fall apart.

100% most of the Hummer dimensions they quoted are from the Truck and not the SUV.

They are counting the exterior spare tire in the overall length of the hummer but call the Rivian much smaller next to the hummer... I bet the spare is the difference in length and the rivian might actually be longer.

True... found this in Hummer EV Pickup Vs Hummer SUV article - https://www.motortrend.com/news/202...2022-hummer-pickup-off-road-specs-comparison/


" The biggest differences between the two new electric Hummers are their lengths; the Hummer EV SUV measures in at 196.8 inches in overall length, a full 20.0(!) inches shorter than the 216.8-inch-long 2022 Hummer EV Pickup. Wheelbase differs, too. The Hummer EV Pickup stretches 135.6 inches between its axles whereas the SUV has a 126.7-inch wheelbase. "

These are the numbers I find for the R1S and Hummer EV Mirrors are the ones I can't find comparable numbers. R1S is mirrors folded, Hummer just says with mirrors I assume extended
