I really wonder how many miles they have racked up on all the test mules seems like they are all over.

ICE only :(
That's one of the better looks at Ocean Coast that I've seen. Full daylight, no color issues from the tint in the car's glass, etc. I think it's a much better color than a pure white. I'm still not convinced that light maple color was the best choice for the wood panels though. I think the interior could use a little more warmth.

I've generally avoided super dark seats ever since I had a charcoal grey car that would get so hot in the summer sun that it would take 10 minutes of AC before I could safely sit in it to drive, even with fold up shades in the windows. Maybe any color seat would have been as bad, but the memory is hard to get over!

Just in case you haven't seen my post about the 3M Crystalline window tint, drive over to "The Tint Guy" in Woodstock, GA, and take a look/feel of the display on the wall showing the difference in temperature of regular glass vs regular tinted glass vs Crystalline tinted glass. You can feel the heat from the Infrared lamp on the non-Crystalline treated, and it will probably burn your hand if you leave it there long enough. With the Crystalline treatment, the heat is barely perceptible. I have driven from Columbus to Woodstock to get this on all my electric vehicles so far, and will plan to do again for my white/ocean coast LE R1T. It is the closest 3M dealership, and they have done an excellent job for me in the past. When driving an EV, less energy needed to cool the cabin equates to longer range. Until the DCFC network is more complete, road trips still require some extra planning, and whatever you can do to increase range, do it.

Still hanging on to my wife's charcoal/black RAV4 until the DCFC infrastructure is more complete, but have exactly the same experience in it...the black steering wheel will burn your hands.

A few observations:

1. The OC looks a lot more grey than white which is great IMO.
2. What’s with the hole on the steering column? Is it missing another stalk?
3. You can see the pull tab for the under-seat storage which I had not noticed on other pics yet.

that hole could have be a standard hole for moving the steering wheel. my F150 had a D-pad in that exact location. im assuming by now they have it integrated into the center console. Obviously just a guess from experience.

Can't tell for sure but the floor in the OC interior pics above appears to be covered in a more traditional automotive carpet material which is different from this which is what I recall seeing in person. Hopefully just a pre-production thing and not representative of a material change in the finished product.

The early prototypes had three stalks. The hole is because Rivian has removed one of them. I assume they're burning through their first casting of column covers, and I would guess the design will be updated for production to remove the hole.

Early prototypes had a stalk in that location. There were actually 2 on each side as well as paddles and it appears the lower stalks and paddles will either be associated with options or eliminated in production.

That is where the stalk was for ADAS. Not sure where moved it to.

1. Ocean Coast was never white. It is definitely more grey.
2. Per other posts, both lower stalks are gone. The left was for Driver+ and the other was for Ride height adjustments.
3. There used to be nice handles for the under-seat drawers similar to the "OH CRAP" handles. Hopefully they bring those back for the production model.
