Then wha

then what color are the trucks in that video?
Primed only. Yes, they are putting on 'finishing hardware' so why would it only be primed. That's because these were production line test and training vehicles. I bet they were built, torn-down and rebuilt numerous times. Something you'd do with a primed-only chassis.

These also look very similar to the trucks they used for crash testing. Nothing in a crash test requires a final production paint job.

When I chatted with the Rivian team that visited Austin with a near-production ready R1T, for the Texas hearing of electric vehicle sales, launch green came up.

I asked if they’ve seen the color in person and they stated that they had not finalized the color (as of early April). But they had seen the 3 versions of Launch Green they were considering.

I can’t say for 100% certainty that these trucks aren’t “Launch Green”, but I can say that as of April 2021, they hadn’t finalized the color…and these videos were posted well before that 🤷🏻‍♂️
