Mitsubishi Endeavor, pre-ordered R1S but may change to R1T
When you say you are in for a R1T with your deposit, does that mean you know that's what you are going to configure when you can? I put a deposit down but it didn't ask me for which vehicle?
Rivian's website has changed a few times since I submitted my pre-order, but each time I've visited it since, including just now, I don't see how one can submit a pre-order without picking which vehicle. Perhaps you chose one and didn't realize it or maybe there is/was some path on the website that allows one to submit without picking one, but it really doesn't matter. Not sure what was (will be?) in your confirmation email but it should indicate you can easily change which vehicle you want when it comes time to place your order. Here's an excerpt from what mine said:

If at any time you decide you'd like to switch models, no need to cancel your order and lose your place in line — when it’s time to configure your vehicle, you’ll be able to switch between the R1T and R1S.
So picking a vehicle with your pre-order is more a survey for Rivian.

Thanks for the reply. That makes sense. Maybe I did pick one and I don't remember.

Yep, just a typo. My bad.
They more recently announced 300KW charging, but it is not clear if that will be in the initial deliveries or available later on. The EA charging network has had some reliability issues early on, but they do seem to be getting better. The credit card readers and the Apple Wallet almost never work, but the App usually does. Hopefully the Rivian will provide the automatic vehicle ID for billing, my Bolt does not have that feature.

Congratulations on your wait time !

Just because I put a deposit down yesterday doesn’t mean I havnt been waiting just as long. This truck has been on our radar since November 2018.
I just wasn’t so quick to put my money down and lock it in . I wanted to see the bronco first. I had had fingers crossed for a hybrid there, but No such luck ! So yeah with the announcement yesterday pushing this back even farther makes it the longest wait EVER !

HAHAHA. Yeah I get it brother. I just was just joking with ya. This wait has been tough. And yes that Bronco looks awesome. I had a new one back in 1996...whew..I'm old AF. LOL I'm very impressed with the new Bronco line and like you am disappointed with no electric drive plan in place. Hang tight..only another 12 months for us now. LOL
