The more I look at the R1S the more it reminds me of a futuristic Range Rover, like in these new pics. Subtle, strong, classy, boxy upright styling.

I have a deposit down for R1T but the R1S has totally grown on me and I'm predicting it'll be difficult to choose once I have to make that decision.

Agreed that R1S does look similar in design to the full size Range Rover. I like the R1T but the R1S is more my style. If I were to go the truck route I would probably want it to be a little larger like the Ford Raptor. Size not necessary, but I always said if I bought a truck it would need to be a big one just for the fun of it!

I hope that green with black contrast roof makes it into final design options. This combo with the dark wood interior would be a fantastic combo.

Nice pics. This one angle made me realize for the first time that the R1T has more of a fender flare or wider fenders than the R1S.

Just watched the feature today. Was nice to see the new inside pics and to see how gargantuan that glass roof is!

Some other small things that were aesthetically appealing: the DRL extend to the front of the rear view mirror casings as well on some of the shots, and it appears the brake lights are not just the single line in the back but have a second bolder light on the sides, almost like a bright slit underneath which I presume aids in visibly showing difference between braking and the normal tail light.

Rivian is going to take over the Pacific Northwest with these.
An outdoor adventure vehicle that looks better than a Range Rover w/ more capability and 600+km range? Theres no way Range Rover could compete with that unless they offered Range Rovers & Velars with the same 100% electric range.
