What are the chances that a potential upgrade for either the R1S or R1T is a custom exterior color?
Probably very low. That would significantly complicate things for a startup company trying to ramp up production as quickly as they can.

Yeah, I can imagine custom colors would be tough to implement.

Still trying to calibrate what's reasonable for this kind of price point, considering the most expensive car I've purchased in my life to date is . . . well, I can't give an accurate fraction because I don't know how much the R1S of my dreams will cost, but probably something like 3x less expensive than a Rivian.

From the factory? Virtually nil.
Wrapping is your best bet and at a fraction of the cost of a custom paint job.

Nice renderings! The steel blue looks great... but tbh, the R1S looks great to me in almost all the colors though.

According to a customer service conversation reported in another thread, there will be 10, not 8, exterior colors. We've already seen dark brown bodies on the early production line.

So, if memory serves, here are the colors in alphabetical order: black, RJ blue, brown, gray, green, mustard (Dijon, of course), silver, and white. That's 8, so there may be 2 more on offer.

I don't believe we've actually seen a black (have we?), so that may or may not be in the exterior color lineup. And, as discussed elsewhere, there are three interior color choices though a good number of folks raised their voices in hopes of a fourth.

I'd expect a red too.

I really like this rendered blue as well. Probably too conservative for most people though.

R1S rendered in different colors. Any favorites? I like the carbon/steel blue one most personally.

That blue is INSANE...Unfortunately since they didn't end up offering anything like it, we're ordering white and will be seeking out a wrap that looks as close to that render as possible.

BTW, someone who works at Rivian just mentioned that the original yellow render was the closest representation to real life.

I really hope one of the upcoming additions I can make to my LE R1T is that carbon-steel blue.

We were looking for a nice blue like this or a darker, metallic midnight blue. Hearing from several configuring the R1S that they are disappointed. SUV buyers looking for a nice blue that doesn't look "smurf" are out of luck. Looks like they picked their colors based on looking into the market data for pickup trucks.

Rivian did white, black, light grey, dark grey... ok. But those looking for an elegant color coming from Land Rover, etc. find an OK green and nothing else. And while this doesn't match their market from a marketing perspective, we know most R1S will never go off road and be used by families for school runs, etc. Have a feeling we are going to see a ton of light silver and black R1S over the years because many owners couldn't find a decent color that fit their tastes.

Both vehicles in red look pretty terrible IMHO. Limestone and LA Silver are too similar (of the two, I prefer Limestone though). I selected El Cap Granite for my config. I may switch to Forest Green. It looks good in person.
