Mods changed my title, so I'll just put my old title here:

Drift Mode!
(the most important part of the video to me)


Glad to see they are working on a Sunday :)

I wonder what that SOS light means...

Its On-Star for Rivian which is awesome!. Means Cell connections are definitely going to be a thing coupled with the OTA updates. Whats even more awesome is the frame less review mirror.

Ok. Who is going to do a rundown on the interior/infotainmen?
It looks fantastic that’s for sure. Nice to see it in a bit of real world view. Hopefully we hear a lot more about it very soon.

Does RJ look a little cramped? I believe he's tallish (6' I think I saw mentioned, but can't find the source now) but his knees look higher than I'd expect for such a large and spacious vehicle.

RJ has been on a roll on Twitter lately.

R1S pic on 1/27
Finished R1S on 1/29
Testing with his family on 1/31
Amazon something on 2/3
Rebelle Rally vid on 2/4
Offroad testing on 2/10
More offroad testing on 2/13
Abbey Road on 2/17
Delivery video on 2/19
Drift mode on 2/21

Some of these were retweets of the main Rivian account, but still, nice to see some signs of life every few days for the last three weeks.

His knees definitely look tight, but I'm withholding judgement without knowing what is behind his seat. Potentially an engineer with a laptop, since they're tweaking traction control software?

I noticed how how close he was sitting to the steering wheel. They definitely went out of their way to include the screen in the video.

I know this isnt from any of the current production test units but Shaq fit in this one, that should mean that there should be plenty of room

Sure, there are plenty of reasons why he would have been sitting like that. That's what I was saying.

Some people just drive like that. My little sister for example lol. I shared a car with her as a teen, and I always had to scoot the seat back because she had it 100% up. She's not short either.

I don’t see any Homelink buttons in that overhead console - do we know if Homelink will be included in the Rivians, or will they take the Tesla route and make you purchase that after delivery?
