I also am a May 21 Pre order. I think I will be lucky toget my R1T max pack in 2022. I think spring 2023 is probably more realistic for me and as well as anyone pre-ordering now. Also I agree if you want one you should preorder now. When they finally get produced and delivered to owners the demand will go up!

Lately unfortunately, the car industry is really dealing with some serious supply chain issues. In KC inventory is almost non existent. I was at a Toyota dealer today, ( in service) but noticed they had probably 30 total vehicles on the lot for sale. I commented about it to the service manager how stark the lot looked. He said most of the cars on the lot are preordered and are already sold. They just put them out there to make not appear as bad as it would really look. My point is, do your rivian Pre order now, keep what you have, and ride out this crazy time in the auto industry, I don’t think you will get a good deal anywhere On anything while you are waiting for your rivian. Crazy times for sure right now!

I mostly just bitch and complain but I’ve got good news - everyone on this thread gets their vehicles by end of 2022.

(I’m just providing Rivian a free loan. So...)
First of all, It’s only 1000 dollars.

Secondly, it’s refundable if you’re this concerned.

Third, your assumptions about how production ramps work is far off from reality.

Have some inside info, or just your opinion?

You mean they don't just flip a switch to start the replication process?

I’m in the same boat as you. Recently joined the forum and debating when I should put down the deposit and pull the trigger. I just got to get my management to sign off on the decision (my wife comes from a strong and loyal Ford dealership family so this a bit of heresy on my part). But I had the same question as you.

I called the customer service center earlier this week and asked if I put a deposit down when might I expect my truck to be produced? The response was current orders being placed now are expected to be fulfilled and delivered in the second half of 2022.

And based on Rivian’s formal IPO filing with the SEC today, I pulled the trigger. Can’t wait for my R1T next year!
