I think they could have a repair facility, just not deliver vehicles from there, but maybe that isn't right. Baltimore would be good too to get the central portion of the state if it has to be outside the border.

Also now the original DC area location (Rockville) is closed, and PA is serviced by Brooklyn, Richmond or Cleveland. I had the spare tire delivered, and that came from mobile service in Cleveland. It's a real mess.
I agree it is a real mess if Cleveland or Richmond are covering Delaware. Parts of southern New Jersey or SE PA. Five plus hours for delivery or servicing is just grossly inefficient. They knew the volumes they were expecting and should have planned better.

I agree, though I would prefer Harrisburg/Mechanicsburg. My truck is in Brooklyn now, and I am having separation anxiety.
Yes Harrisburg would actually be closer for me too. But I hope once I get mine I don't need an SC!

At this point in Rivians life it may not be worth it to open a repair facility that cannot deliver trucks also, regardless of the laws. If they could, and did, I would guess something around Amazon delivery centers might be a good candidate, once van deliveries start to that area. Although it’s possible the plans are for van maintenance to be done on site specifically for their vans. Obviously I’m not looking forward to getting service done in Brooklyn once I finally get a truck, 136 miles each way, which likely means I’ll have to stop and charge if I drive there and home. But I’m sure Rivians next site will be determined by the number of sales in a geographical area, or if one service center seems overloaded compared to others. Harrisburg is centrally located for the state, but I would guess they would either go closer to a populations center, or less likely, a district that would swing a politicians vote to change the law.

Any word on the Pensacola FL location on the IPO Map? Pensacola is about 1.5hrs away from my location and would be the closest. Otherwise I will have to do the Orlando trek 5-6 hrs away. Pensacola is also the closest Tesla Service Center which I have had to go to a couple of times for my Model 3 (minor stuff). My R1S delivery window still seems to be Late 2023 as I have had no word since the last delivery updates 8 months ago. Hopefully a Pensacola location will be up and running by then.
Actually from Santa Rosa Beach to Orlando is right at 400 miles. Atlanta is 100 miles closer at 300 miles from here.

Tesla can sell in PA with no dealerships (in fact they just took over an old Land Rover site in West Chester), so why can’t Rivian?

i just looked up Penn law and automakers like Tesla and Rivian are allowed 5 sales stores in the state. Any more stores would have to be merely “Showcase” locations where sales cannot directly take place. So it looks like Rivian would be able to open 5 stores in Pennsylvania.

My understanding was Tesla was grandfathered into five but no other EV manufacturers can open shop in PA unfortunately.

so i was at the Miami, FL service center today, super nice guys there btw. the inside had 4 or 5 vehicles they were working on including one getting the battery pack replaced. They had 9 R1T's waiting for delivery, they did confirm 4 R1S's have been delivered from there already. Spoke with one of the advisors who told me as of a week or so ago, just over 150 total R1 delivered in south FL and just 450 in the entire state of FL. he said its crazy that much and outside of the SC he doesnt really run into any, i thought the same, I have only run into 2 of them.

Nice! Any idea how the SW 1st AV location is coming along?
Looks like City of Portland finally issued the Commercial Building Permit for the 1st Ave location, on September 29th, one year + a day after the processed was started back in September of last year.

Hopefully we will start seeing some real progress over there now..

Any other news on additional service centers? There had been talk of 40 of them and we are stuck around 20 plus one hub a year after opening the first locations.

The Chicago SC appears to be very active and there are a boatload, probably 20 R1T's there awaiting delivery as well as 3 or 4 R1S. Both parking lots there are full. SC appears to be fully staffed as well

The tech that serviced my recall said that Tampa, FL is definitely getting a service center for those wondering on another thread I read a few weeks ago

accurate, this also applies to service.

For instance; Tesla cannot conduct vehicle inspections on only Teslas in the State of PA. If they want to offer state inspections services for Tesla, its my understand they have to offer them for all other vehicles as well. As such, they don't do them at all.
