No worries, I found it in there.I confirmed that it had been written in this article before I wrote my previous post, but it might appear in other places.
This is where you have to accept the fact that you will have those moments regardless of which decision you make. If you buy the R1T, there will be times you wish you had the R1S. If you buy the R1S, there will be times when you wish you had the R1T. There is absolutely no way one vehicle can serve every possible need you will have during your time of ownership. If your "regretful moments" only happen once in a blue moon, that means you really can't go wrong with whichever decision you make. And if they're both essentially functionally equivalent for your needs, go with whichever "speaks" to you style wise. And if you still need a tie breaker, the R1T might be a few $$ cheaper and available sooner.It's that every once in a while, once in a blue moon, when push comes to shove moment, when I'll say, "gosh, I wish I had a R1T" or will I be saying, "I should've gotten a RIS"?
It sounds to me like you need one of each.Lmirafuente, I'm Nov. 30, 2018, and 10:30 a.m., if it comes to that. We're both long suffering acolytes.
I'm also up in the air between the R1S and R1T, and I started this thread to try and help me and others decide. I don't change my mind in a single day, and I can usually push myself one way or the other when I say, "okay, I have to decide; this is it." However, from several days to several days, I can change my mind.
As said above, 90-95% of the time, maybe even 98% of the time, both are great vehicles and can do whatever I need and want them to do. It's that every once in a while, once in a blue moon, when push comes to shove moment, when I'll say, "gosh, I wish I had a R1T" or will I be saying, "I should've gotten a RIS"?
Ditto. And to your point, I received the following in an email yesterday from Ford - "the all-electric Mustang Mach-E you reserved is almost yours. In the next few days, you’ll be able to take the important step of completing your order and verifying your details to confirm your place in line. "I agree with all that has been said.
I think the race to market will drive Rivian's priorities.
Rivian reservation holders may have waiting-fatigue, especially me with a reservation slot from Dec 2018.... people may look at other options by the time Rivian starts production. So if they can capture revenue with R1T's and R1S's simultaneously or within weeks or a couple of months of each other...they could protect that potential revenue stream from defecting (wink) to a Mach-e, Lordstown, or other BEV's like Lucid Motors, Audi, VW, Ford, GM, etc.......
It was a confirmation email for someone who placed their deposit in the middle of May, so after the lockdown. They posted it on a FB group I’m part of.SHzeph, were those official Rivian emails before or after the COVID-19 lockdown? Obviously, if before, then Rivian will likely push back the configurator's release.
