They haven't wavered on a June launch, but that doesn't necessarily mean they won't be building before then. I'm thinking once test drives become available they'll be ready to start.

They need to practice building some and this will result in some number of pre production vehicles out there. They will not be sold but rather given to employees and perhaps some investors for a sort of beta testing. These could be used for demos too. If they are going to be releasing cars to paying customers in 7 months I'd guess these preproduction ones are either being built now or will be very soon.

Jeeps, 2500HD Duramax, will be ordering R1S
In addition to pre production units that won't go to preorder holders, I expect they will pre-build vehicles prior to customer deliveries starting. The question is when they will start & how many.

Due to early preorder, I hope to be one of the August R1S deliveries.

I’m waiting to hear a review of both vehicles from a first hand (in the truck/suv) reputable automotive source. We’ve read about Lucid and I’m hoping Rivian isn’t far behind. That would get me jacked and keep me excited without needing additional details from Rivian.
