As far as I can tell, the launch edition will be getting the panoramic roof as the default and only option. Since I will sometimes be traveling in sunny climes, I am wondering if there will be an included sliding roof shade as there is on most sunroofs. If not, does anyone have a good solution for avoiding a greenhouse effect?

Tesla has lots of glass overhead. They give you a cloth sunshade on a plastic frame that you sort of push into place. Rivian will probably do something similar and if they don't some third party will.

Rivian made it very clear through others that there will be no shade. A quality dark tint on the interior may be the only option. Nobody can get clarification if the tint changes with any photo optic film in the glass.

There certainly doesn't seem to be a shade in the pictures they're showing, but no way of knowing if that matches the final configuration we'll see ship to customers next year.

I'm going to wait to see how the dimming effect works. If it doesn't work well enough, I'll probably just tint it.

I was just on the phone with Rivian, and asked whether the tint will change from light to dark. The answer was no, it is one shade, and will not change, and there will be no sliding shade option.

This is exactly my complaint about the CS reps. Almost seems like they respond depending on their mood. It wouldn't surprise me that it was Martin the one that answered that phone call XD

In the last four days, we went from photochromic to electrochromic to tinted glass.
