Curious to see where folks are at. Also confess to wanting to see/demonstrate level of interest for 6 seat configuration, which I would really, really love to see Rivian make as an option, similar to Model X and XC90 Recharge. For us, just works so much better with kids and car seats, which make tilt/fold 2nd row a deal breaker. I realize Rivian needs to simplify configurations as it ramps production but please allow us the option to diy remove 2nd row middle seat?:fingerscrossed:

Regardless, fun to be on this journey and thanks for making a great product.

Im in for the 7 seater, will uninstall the last row and not carry it around until needed though I know its a pain in the ass.

I'm on the tail end of raising kids and car pools.... I have absolutely no use for a third row until grand kids come along which I hope is still 10 years aways... However, if Rivian keeps the 5 seater and 7 seater the exact same price (as is the case right now) I will opt for the 7 seater. I will either lay the third row down or remove it for my own use and plan for slightly better resale value in the future and have it just in case those grandkids come sooner than later....

*All this assumes that Rivian won't be offering a Max battery that requires the third row delete. Max battery is job one for me.

5-seater is my preferred configuration, by a very large margin. I am currently configured for a 7 seat LE and extremely disappointed that the 5-seater is not available with LE. Once specifics of the 7-seater are revealed, I will determine if I can live with it as a compromise for earlier delivery or if I have to pass on LE and wait until 2022 for the 5-seater. I am really not happy about this potential compromise.

Sounds like Rivian could potentially make several camps happy if both 3rd row and middle seat 2nd row are customer-removable.

the new MDX has an easily removable 2nd row center section.

That's slick, and something similar would be incredible for R1S! Someone that's hardcore on captain chairs should send that link to Rivian.

There is another poll with the same question:

This in reply to me sending the MDX link above with a plea for customer configurable seating in R1S:

Thanks again for the feedback! The current available seating options are the 5-seat configuration or the 7-seat configuration. We’ve definitely made note of your feedback, though, and you never know what the future may hold. We appreciate you being on this journey with us and can’t wait to get you behind the wheel!

Your fellow adventurer,

I send a weekly reminder about 6 seat configuration to Rivian customer service to try to keep it top of mind. Below is the response I got today, which, as an inherently optimistic person, I choose to see as progress. At least they aren’t telling me that the only available configurations are 5 and 7. More likely I’ve been labeled a nuisance and this is the only canned response they will ever send me.

Come on Rivian! Save me from buying a Musk Minivan!

I have a six seat X and used to have a six seat Navigator as well as a seven seat X. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the six seat configuration. Great for our large dogs and access to 3rd row. Rivian, if you are listening, PLEASE make this an option! 21% in this poll and 26.5% in another poll asking the same question. Demand is there.

You forgot a four seat option. I would love to give more luxury to the second row without storing the extra third row bench.
