I got all excited a couple weeks ago when I finally got a guide assigned and the email to lock my configuration. My guide sent the PBA a couple of days later.

My guide (who has been very responsive and proactive) called last week, just as others have noted, to offer a different configuration (it seems like no R1S's were built in the first batch with 21" wheels). I really want the 21's so decided to wait.

When I texted her this morning about time running out in my delivery window (Aug-Sep) she said they "are expecting to be pushing out another large batch of R1S vehicles in early October". Hopefully I will be part of the next batch, but looks like I will for sure miss the Aug-Sep delivery window.

This is mostly good news. I have to admit I get a little frustrated that pre-order date really doesn't matter much. As a June 2019 R1S LE reservation holder I am seeing a number of people later in the ordering process getting vehicles. Still crickets for me. Hoping the October-December holds. Keep us updated on your progress and congrats!

That is good news. Also confused as an 11/2018 R1S LE/LG/20AT/BM preorder holder in the bay area. No updates about timing of delivery or any movement, offers of alternative configs etc. I've seen several here in the bay area and chatted briefly with an owner (non-employee) who pre-ordered 11/20 (2 years later) with the identical config. Hopefully soon.

I hope this is true. 3/2019 reservation holder. Oct-Dec eta. Still haven’t heard anything. I see another local in my area get the same configuration coming next week. However they ordered 10/2020. A year and a half after me and get delivery before? Makes no sense. I’m happy for them winning the Rivian lottery.

I’m an August 2020 LE R1S. My Guide suggested it may be a while since I am one of a handful of Compass Yellow. He kind of said it without actually saying it.

I ordered 11/2018 as well and just assumed my getting skipped to other, later preorder folks was my config of LE/Elcap/22SB/FE. But your config is exactly what they said would be a priority build. I don't get it but feel the frustration.

How come you get Aug-Sep delivery estimates? Did they think Kirkland is closer to Bellevue than Issaquah? ;)

I mean I have no problem waiting until December but trying to understand how Rivian is prioritizing 🤷🏾‍♂️

I'm a 6/19 reservation holder as well. Initially Apr/May and now OCt/Dec estimated delivery. Trying to patiently wait but its hard seeing some 2020 folks getting their R1S' before us. I'm in STL only 2 hours from Normal.

It seems priority is based whatever configuration they decide to build. Then, those with reservations similar to those being built AND near a SC will get called to get ready for delivery. For those that have similar configuration and near the same SC, whoever ends up getting one appears to be random.

That’s gotta be infuriating. Since there are no FE R1Ses yet, I’m not experiencing it just yet.

TBH, what is getting me is seeing pics of delivery trucks full of R1Ts (but no R1Ses) on the road. I’ve been waiting for 3.5 years and sure wish Rivian would prioritize early R1S orders over 2021 R1T orders now that they’re making both. I get that there are decent reasons for that, I just don’t like it!

We are a November 2018 pre-holder as well. Told October to December delivery. Very frustrating since I reserved 10 minutes into the launch announcement way back when...

My guide is just giving out "canned" responses in emails and on the phone right now. Do not know why we are still waiting behind people that have not had a reservation as long. Some are saying that orders with the extra under body protective option are getting them now.

May 2019 preorder here as well. White, ocean coast interior, 22” black wheels configuration. Ordered the same day as my R1T which I received in June due to a shop selection after being invited there.

I would like to see them offer a shop for the R1S as well. So far was just told first half of 2023. Assumed it was due to ocean coast interior.

12/18 order here, also in the Bay Area. I have 21" wheels on my order- but I think I've seen some R1S getting delivered with the 21s. Either way I had a messaging exchange with my guide. According to him- everyone should get an updated delivery window by the end of the year.

I voiced my frustration and the response was interesting as he noted my zip code is exactly 30 miles from the South San Francisco Service center. They might be starting with deliveries closest and then moving out.

I hope they open the San Francisco service center ASAP because then I'd be like 10 miles away! If that is in fact the major criteria... probably not.

On a side note I also added the underbody shield which according to my guide changed my delivery timing. I still have a October-December window but now I'm not sure if that is accurate anymore.

I'd love to see a batch include mine. Oct-Dec window. Pretty common spec - GW/BM/20s, relatively close to Orlando service center. I saw one in my exact build at the Orlando SC in photos a few weeks ago, still anxiously awaiting the initial guide contact. Hopefully all of you 2018 and 2019 orders get them s00n as well.
