Perhaps the outer part is removable? The inner part looks to be about the size of my other fobs.

One tidbit I forgot to mention from my chat with the Rivian folks in Austin this week is around entry/exit...

Few Options:
1. Carabiner key fob we saw today
2. Phone as a key
3. Card (in wallet) key. They actually pulled out the card-key that he kept in his wallet and showed me. Lexus has had something similar for awhile.

Washington state only taxes on the difference as far as I recall. However, my current ride is a lease so I will end up paying taxes on the buyout cost anyway. Unless dealers have a way of finagling out of that somehow.

Maine and Mass. do the same. I'll be trading in my X to offset the R1S purchase price.

I know way back at the Seattle event they showed off several different carabiner-style keys. I wasn’t there, so I don’t know why they showed off different designs or if Rivian said there would be multiple options to choose from. Rivian’s plans also could have changed from the event, which seems so long ago at this point. I like the look of carabiner they showed today the best.

Here’s something I saw elsewhere that I don’t think we’ve discussed yet - the key fob. Interesting - carabiner shape.

Isn't that the entire idea, you won't need this in your pocket since you will be able to clip it on to something like your belt loop or backpack?
I suppose that is the idea, but just not my style. I don't alsways have a pack, and I don't want things dangling off of me. It just seems cumbersome.

I think they could stick with the cool caribiner but make it like 50% the size.

Some other iterations are shown in this old thread...

Yikes! That key fob is massive. Not sure what to think about that. Caribiner follows the theme but... I mean, I want to like it. I don't like carrying huge things in my pocket!
A little like a carabiner. Goes with mountain adventure — or on your belt wherever.

I am guessing that it is simply a activity key for when you leave your phone in the car (main point of entry) similar to what land rover has except not a watch.
