Lacking openness is never acceptable in business. Launch Green is the top color ordered. RIVIAN knows that yet they have refused to show anyone what the color looks like. Would it really be that hard to paint a Vehicle and photograph it?Absolutely. Totally agree. I was just venturing to guess as to why they are so "cagey" and lacking openness when so close to pushing those suckers out the door. Some of the disconcerting items might be a benefit at the end of the day, and some just might be items we'll miss or hoped they continued to include.
Having a live presentation of the Vehicles and answering questions is not very hard. They have thousands of Vehicles Configured and people are looking for answers.
Test drives are being done every day during these troubled times. How hard would it be to have a few teams set up in major cities and let people test drive? If they are going to wait until the Virus is gone we will never have a test drive. RIVIAN is lucky that no one has an R1T equivalent and only Tesla has an SUV. If Tesla had an update to their ModeL X I would buy one rather than waiting 18-24 months for a 400 mile R1S to come out. I guess I’m frustrated with the lack of info.
