All good points!There's a certain novelty in having access to that info but it wouldn't really tell you much. For starters, neither you nor Rivian know how everyone on the list will configure their vehicle. Even if you assume that everyone is going to get the same maxed out vehicles that will kick off production (which they won't, many aren't even committed to R1T or R1S at this point), you would still need to know something about Rivian's production rate to even ballpark a delivery date. With refundable deposits, new competitors, covid-19, etc there will undoubtedly be people who cancel their reservation. And some R1S will convert to R1T for earlier delivery and some R1T will convert to R1S for other reasons. At this point, reservation dates are all but meaningless until those reservations are converted to orders and that won't start to happen until later this year. What you really want to know is where you will stand on that order list along with how quickly Rivian expects to be able to ramp up production.
