Jeeps, 2500HD Duramax, will be ordering R1S
Emme mentioned the cables hanging underneath the truck and also complained about them. The engineers assured her they would be gone in the final version.
Thank goodness, great news for any of us that will take these off the pavement.

Their presence would also counter the effort they put into aero optimization so it didn't seem likely the danglies would make it to production.

The video that Rivian put together in the Rebelle will premier in the Laguna Beach Film Festival
Nov12-15
I just tried to find the film about the Rally, but didn't see it. Rivian is a sponsor of the Coast Film Festival, but no mention of a Rally film...

Yeah can't find it either. Emme mentioned they were going to show it there, so I'm not sure. Could it be they decided to delay it for the configurator release...

Looks like Emme is waiting like all of us for the full video, but Rebecca has a better idea of when the video will come out:
"A long trailer played there but the whole docu short is not out yet. I believe a shorter version of the trailer will be out on social momentarily then the full length short on youtube 11/23"

This looks like a new article about the Rebelle Rally:
https://www.theglobeandmail.com/dri...les-an-8-day-desert-adventure-in-an-electric/

Nothing groundbreaking in it, but still a decent read. This was my favorite part:
" Peter Herath, one of two engineers Rivian sent as support staff to fix the R1T, instead found himself largely working on competitorsʼ vehicles, everything from Jeeps to G-Class Mercedes. "

And what they're up to next:
" The next R1T prototypes have already been altered based on the information collected from Hall and Donagheʼs successful completion, and those vehicles are now headed to wintertime testing grounds in northern Minnesota. "

Paywalled. 😞
