I’m trying to get good pictures but being respectful of their rules.
No. Forum rules require that you take and post interior photos, as well as photos inside the frunk and skidplates.

Sorry. But if you don't follow these forum rules, we'll have to remove you.

Let me know what pics you want and I will go get some. I spent the last hour trying to get some. But they were pretty particular about what I could take pictures of. They didn’t want me taking and really close up shots. But I’ll do my best to get what you want.
Gotta get pictures while charging prior to posting video. It removes the upload file size limit.

RJ just knocked it out of the park on BlackRock's Future Forum! He and Mary Barra gave great presentations on the electrification of automobiles and Rivian's and GM's roles going forward. I'm not sure if it was my tablet or not, but Mary looked a little Launch Green with envy. 💚😉

Look for it on BlackRock's website later today. I think you'll enjoy it!

Way to go RJ!

Is it just me, or does that tailgate look like it comes way off the back past the bumper? Almost as if it could drop down another 90 degrees.

Yes, I see the cables holding it up, but it kinda gives hope that the 180º tailgate could be a future aftermarket add-on.
I like that they have included a hinged plate to give a smooth surface from the bed to tailgate. Anyone who has hauled soil/gravel/aggregate will know how annoying it is having that gap.

Anyone want to tell me why Rivian would let this vehicle out into the wild with these misalignments, etc? I understand its pre-production, but wow... I swear, I'm not a hater, but OCD is kicking in...
I gave them a pass, in previous months, because it was all pre-production and I accept they may be evaluating other things rather than body panel fit/finish. However, as we get closer and closer to deliveries, I get more nervous about these glaring issues. We haven't seen any model with a well-fitting charge door, for example.

Is a missing or mis-aligned charge door going to be a characteristic quirk of Rivian? I hope not!

Had no idea that was happening. Will definitely need to watch the video.

😂- I tried to take pictures of the frunk but they asked me to delete them...... I got a little too close. I finally got to see where the power in the frunk is located. 12 volt cig located along the front top edge offset to the drivers side a bit. (I was told not to photograph it as it is subject to change). Was curious if the hood would interfere with a wire plugged in there (pointing straight up at the hood). Otherwise the frunk was full of there junk (backpacks and stuff) so it was hard to see too much anyway.

Admin helped me get video uploaded to youtube while I’m out and about. Enjoy! I may get a little more when I go back by in about 30 minutes.



Added photos to have them in one place along with video.

I debated posting this picture. Here’s a possible feature I haven’t seen mentioned anywhere before..... however, I have to warn you that I was told no decision has been made about whether or not it will actually make production. But I thought it was really cool especially for overlanding/off roading purposes. Notice the 2 lights on the mirrors circled here.... they are spot lights for lighting up the ditches or forward sides of the car. Don’t get your hopes up but that’s pretty cool and makes me wonder what other Easter eggs we might find that actually do make production.

Ask them where the access for the 12V battery is.... 🤔

Can you ask how the door handles work? Also, if the charging light indicator on the front is still planned? Thanks!

I know there was lots of speculation as to when or why door handles would be extended, but has anyone confirmed under what conditions they extend?

Filling in that gap is is a really nice touch. Best news about the tailgate/bed I've seen so far!
