The old site had that mis-info as well, shame they didn't get it corrected (even after I mentioned it to CS recently). It is listed correctly in the FAQs though.

No, I think you misunderstood. The correct length is 202 inches.
I got this email yesterday when I asked about the lenght on the R1S and why it was still 200.8in in the new website when I've been told by cs reps the actual lenght is 202in.

"Good afternoon and thanks for reaching out to us here at Rivian. Happy Wednesday!

I apologize for the confusion and any miscommunication between our teams and our specs page on our website. The length for the R1S is, in fact 200.8 inches"

Wait, what?!

They really need to get this straight and make sure everyone is on the same page and that every part of the website is in agreement. This is super, super, super basic information.

I see they're being as consistent as ever. :(

You should contact them today and ask why it is still listed as 202" on their Support page. They can't both be right. Or can they? The Support page does say "depending on your configuration" so perhaps 202" is with the tow-hooks and 200.8" is without?

I wish we could get more information about the dimensions at different angles. The _where_ it is 200" long is just as important as the fact that it is. These are not carboard boxes. They have tapers and angles that are important for getting around it when parked in a tight spot like a garage.
