I know what you mean. If they have any chance of starting deliveries in June, they would need to have the details ironed out by now.How is Rivian reaffirming delivery in such a short timeframe when they still have **so many information gaps** on the vehicle??? Surely if they are delivering in under 4 months then they should be able to answer any question posed.
I remember seeing a video where one of their engineers talked about how difficult it was to seal the doors to prevent water ingress. I actually assume that might be one reason why they're testing in reverse.
Fun math time...
Let's assume their goal is 10,000 trucks this year (I know optimistic, but I sure do like those half-full glasses)
7 Months (starting June 1)
Roughly 47 trucks a day
Roughly 16 hours a day
Yeah. It's going to happen. Anyone else need some rose-colored glasses? I buy them at Costco.
I have a friend who just accepted a job with Rivian and starts next week. She said it was made extremely clear that she would be worked very hard over the next 6 months because they would be making the launch date come hell or high water.I know what you mean. If they have any chance of starting deliveries in June, they would need to have the details ironed out by now.
It's not like they will somehow magically go from not even knowing the final dimensions and features to cranking out trucks overnight. If they can't even publish the dimensions and specs for each trim level at this point, something is fishy. I suspect they truly don't have those answers yet, which means no trucks in June.
