I agree. The hump that the third row makes looks kinda mickey mouse. Hopefully they will have addressed this by next year.It may well be three degrees but the seat itself stands above the back floor when folded (at whatever degrees) -- watch the video at 5:25 minute mark. As I said, I'm less concerned about this for my purchase... but my eyes tell me that what some see as flat they will not see as flat after seeing this section of video. Of course, perhaps Rivian has changed it for production....
Yes, they should absolutely have ignored everything they learned from testing a validation builds and gone with what they had on paper. Why would you want to incorporate what you learned in real world usage and production runs? I just can't understand what they were thinking.!Yes, maybe Rivian has changed R1S seat folding for production AND NOT TOLD US ABOUT IT!
I'm not impressed with how many trim and design features are presented. Color renderings are not detailed enough to know what colors look like; color renderings are inside pics only; no ability to mix and match wheel rims, wood trims and interior colors; no full size spares for the R1S; no flat floor for the R1S; no 400+ battery.
Rivian did a bang-up job on the engineering side of the operation, but not such a bang-up job otherwise - with interior design, option choices, and the ability to customize vehicles to what customers want.
Yes, it's a start-up but it's been working on these vehicles for ten years. Engineering specs alone do not sell cars. Supposedly the trucks have been "production ready" for two years, but it's been a year since I saw the R1T and R1S at the Mill Valley/SF event, and key design features, like R1S flat floors, larger battery packs, spare tires, and roof rack options have still not been addressed? Even if the configurator was rushed to implementation ahead of schedule, there's a lot left to be desired in how things are being done. Disappointed.
I was under the impression they wouldn't offer the 400 mile option for pre-orders until January 2022. I did reserve the 400+ mile R1T and will anxiously wait the delivery. On the plus side it might be good to wait a little for the kinks to be worked out. I'm sure Rivian will get most things right but nobody or company is perfect.In all sincerity, please reply to this thread when you find a 400+mi BEV truck that is available before Jan 2022.
I'd consider others available sooner.
But my money's on the Cybertruck being delayed, and I wouldn't want the Hummer even if it were in the same price class.
In other words, my money's still on the R1T
I configured my 400+ R1T Monday when the configurator went live. I think many of us did.I was under the impression they wouldn't offer the 400 mile option for pre-orders until January 2022. I did reserve the 400+ mile R1T and will anxiously wait the delivery. On the plus side it might be good to wait a little for the kinks to be worked out.
