I was about to point out that there were 56 questions and zero questions asked about the charging speed, charge curve, or voltage. What a maniac.
You sound like me wondering how people don't check the charging speed when they are taking photos of them charging. I did ask hint to CS today that it'd be great to know the charging info, and she agreed, and also that she is excited to find out the impacts of each wheel choice on range without prompting.

Personally knowing if the launch edition is capable of charging at 800V is the last thing I need to know before I decide on it or wait for a Rivian in 2022. In sure by then all Rivians will be capable of it.

Last word we had was capable but not enabled.

I'm having trouble visualizing the "front lip of the rear seat cushions". What is that? (also sorry for the image, Chrome does not want to copy text from the PDF for some reason).

Edit: also interesting to note that "captain seats are under review". Hopefully for Launch Editions? Not a deal breaker for me but definitely a preference.

Perhaps something like what Volvo offers:

And 2nd row captains chairs is all but guaranteed to be a post-LE offering (if it is offered at all).

Thanks, for some reason I thought the front lip would still flip, and I was like "isn't that the same as under-seat??" lol. This makes more sense.

You're right that captains seats are likely a post-LE option, it might be too late to retool the production line at this stage. Plus they could upcharge for it like Tesla does.

So, after reading through the Q&A, I would be really surprised if the customer didn't ask about batteries. He was way too thorough not to imho. I wonder if that was explicitly off limits or something.

Doesn’t look like either Rivian will have high wattage power output? They only talk about 120V outlets.

Just be aware that a lot auto manufacturers have specific exclusions in their warrantees that void the. If the vehicle is used for plowing.

This is the scenario where we wish they would release them as 2019 models....

Electric cars must adhere to 'quiet car' regulations by 2020 - Roadshow (cnet.com)
This isn’t a requirement based on model year. It’s required on 50% of vehicle models manufactured before September 1, 2020, and 100% of them manufactured after that date.

This was a concession so manufacturers (Alliance/Global and Honda) didn’t have to send models back to design to make sure they had the hardware in them to emit sound. Every other manufacturer already has appropriate hardware installed and complies with the rules already.

I hope "none" is an option.
This was highly talked about in the RAV 4 EV forums I am in. I have one and the very first thing I did was track down where speaker was... followed the cable to it and found that it was simply connected to a harness. I unhooked it - no more sound. Many, many debates on if this would get people in trouble if they hit a pedestrian and it wasn't enabled. I'm like well my Volt is the same year and it doesn't have it at all...

If you run over my wife and her Seeing Eye Dog because they can't hear you coming because you tampered with a safety device, you can bet your butt I will take every dollar you have and then some in court.

All you do is take a twig and leave it wrapped in the wire and insurance will think it must have gotten pulled out by the twig after running over 😁
