Looking at Rivian's twitter, they've been posting weekly since before Memorial Day.
  • Thursday 5/27 -- Adventures Beginning Soon
  • Wednesday 6/2 -- Adventure follow-up
  • Friday 6/11 -- Interior teaser
  • Thursday 6/17 -- Interior story
  • Friday 6/25 -- Camp Kitchen demo (retweet of RJ's video)
  • Thursday 7/1 -- Camp Kitchen Story
  • Thursday 7/8 or Friday 7/9 -- ??
Following the recent pattern of teaser one week, story the next, maybe we'll get a UI or Range tease this week with an announcement next week.

Frankly the suspense is tremendous. I hope we get some more news (whatever it might be) this week.

I remember Guides telling people that “starting in July, weekly educational emails will be sent”.

This is technically the first full week of July, so let’s see what we get tomorrow or Friday!

-puts on pessimist hat-
Actually it doesn't sound like they are committing to an email every week of July. They could just be saying the first one will go out by July 31st.

Now you sound like me. Not a pessimist had, just keeping the bar low for them. 😁

Wow, nearly 3/4 of the votes so far are for absolutely nothing. Despite everything, I find that surprising.

I voted for other. Repackage stuff that's been known for years like tires into a shiny new Instagram post.

"So this week we're showcasing our mostly ROUND steering wheel. WOW. Much amaze. So out there. It has an airbag. Probably several buttons. They do stuff. We can't tell you what they do because...... anyways have a great week and be super excited we may ship a few vehicles before the end of the year"

Any guesses for tomorrow or Friday's news from Rivian. Maybe the online store, or an infotainment walk thru?

I'm loving all the pictures and videos that have been coming out. I suspect that there will be little news of substance until after Labor Day.

I expect something with the UI, but probably not a full walkthrough. I think it will be a step above a teaser, but not comprehensive.

I'm still curios why they haven't opened the merch store seems like they could be making some side cash and some hype. I mean I already have a "soon" shirt and a R1T doing the backstroke but some official gear would be sweet.

The smart vote is "None". The latest news on features/info for the vehicles was 8+ weeks ago with the Inside Story. Nothing has indicated anything has changed with their (lack of) communication plan.

As an aside, it seems like those with guides might be getting some new info s00n.

requires manpower, shipping, logistics, automation. Just assuming they are not ready for none of that even if the merch is ready.
