Countdown to the start of Rivian Deliveries - link is an active countdown timer
I am an optimist so I counted down to June 1st. Pessimists should add 30 days. Skeptics should add more than 30 days.
I'm just going to assume your timeline is the same as Rivian's, and I now expect Rivian to stick to it.When you start backing up from the start of deliveries, things will move quickly:
70 Days or less Until Order Confirmation: It would seem that order confirmations would need to start at least 30 days before first delivery in order to plan production, allow for financing and possible trade-ins.
40 Days or less Until Test Drives / Hands On Access: Most of the reservation holders will want to at least have the ability to sit and drive (or least be driven) in the vehicle before finalizing an order. To get reservations holders to a location to do this with time to decide on their final order, you need about 30 days to get the first groups through the process.
I also reserved my Signature Model X years before delivery. With that car, I was able to confirm my order 90 days before delivery and then was able to touch one and ride in (Not drive) one 85 days before delivery.
I will one way ticket and Uber to Normal!I can't imagine any reason to stockpile them. Drive it off the line to the delivery area and let the new owner's drive them away. No need for delivery trucks, and those of us picking up at the factory get first crack at them!
Once they run out of factory delivery buyers they can start arranging to ship them, but still no reason to stockpile.
