I am not as concerned about the range numbers. I think they will be in the range of what they have been estimating.
They have been putting thousands of miles on these test mules over the last 18 months. If the numbers were going to be way off and not attainable, they would have adjusted the estimated range on the web site.
I believe they stated that they are waiting for the official one. They already have their own numbers.I think it may have been CS. Let me see if I can find it.
I wonder if it's even legal to sell vehicles that haven't completed EPA testing? Deliveries start in the next 30 days and were pushed back - it seems to me that they would be cutting it awfully close to have not completed the testing and counting on a government agency to move quick. I suppose their website does say "pending review" which could mean their own review
Personally I'm OK with Rivian waiting for the official results to give us a solid number [they already mentioned 300+].
They only have 1 chance to show they are doing things right, so saying any number either higher or lower than the official EPA range, could result in people complaining even more... I guess they can't make everyone happy.
It wouldn't surprise me that we'll be getting the official numbers in a week or 2. For example the Mach e got the official range at the end of Nov, and the first vehicles started selling on Dec.
