Watching the Jalopnik video, and I started to wonder. Does anyone know *why* Rivian and Tesla have gone to the electric vents? From the video it looks like they would be accessible enough to have the manual adjustments we're all used to. That'd save money. What's the point?
I blame the designers...

Multiple of the reviews including one with a Rivian engineer referred to the drain plug in the drunk

Another Review, but this one is in Spanish. Looks like he was also in CO.
This one has the power tonneau in action

A little more about charging:
200mi in 30min
0-80% in 50min

There was also a shot of the last 5min, 15mi, 30min screen. I think Ben Sullins talked about it.
He also mentioned ~5ms delay for the motors to react to the input from the driver. I didn't hear this before.

Curious did they say what mode?

One of the reviewers talked about pedal response in street modes were very tight but when in some of the off-road modes it was less reactive by design to allow for the bouncing around off road.

I believe it was in the Rivian Stories review of the First Mike event when they talked about Mt Rivian. But now that I think about it I think the same topic came up in the MT videos.
