New color, blue truck with the black interior. Different wheels too, and I like them better!

Notice the charging port appears to still be on the passenger side.
I did. I can only assume that this truck had been sitting there assembled and ready for paint, so once that "Electric Blue" paint was selected as a color they had a vehicle ready to go.

Like the black interior. Here’s a photo posted to Reddit. I hope someone got a closeup of the wood dash in this one - I need to see it!

Mitsubishi Endeavor, pre-ordered R1S but may change to R1T
Hmm, maybe it's the photos but I'll have say these exterior colors seem mundane and flat to me. They could use a little metallic flake in the paint to liven it up some. Again, maybe it's just the effect of the photos.

One thing that I have yet to see coming out of the Seattle event.....What was the party favor?? Coffee mug? Watter bottle? More pins? Carabiner?

Some of it's the photos but it does look a bit flat compared to the more metallic blues that I'm used to seeing on other cars. Still it was our favorite of the colors at the Seattle event and we weren't the only ones. RJ joked that he'd already sold that one multiple times that afternoon.

We asked about other colors, were told that they weren't ready to talk about that yet, and that we'd see more when the configurator was available the first half(ish) of 2020.

Dangit! That black mug is sharp! My wife ended up with 2 white mugs from the ATL event. Do you have any other photos of the dash? That is a bummer that is started raining on you guys. I always hear that Seattle is rainy and gross all the time...I have been there 5 times and never once have I had it rain on me.
