They’ve gotta be press units if they’re headed to CO, especially as they have plates on them. Whether they differ at all from customer vehicles in any functional way is another question (I suspect they’ve been QC’ed even more).

Won't they keep the manufacturer plates until the actual title transfer anyway? Which is likely to happen when the customer is taking delivery.
Vehicles destined for a customer ship without plates. Temporary plates are added in the state they are delivered to (traditionally by a dealer).

Do you know what event?
It's an off road driving event for the press. It's not a public event or anything. Think first drives for the press. Very controlled typically. I know ow Tom with OOS/insideEVS will be there and am guessing the TFL guys will among others.

Also, I don't think there are great odds we will get a charging curve. This sounds a short time with the truck similar to the first drive events. I know Tom is gonna try and get it, but let's not set expect too high.

Biden was in Golden yesterday visiting National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Maybe it's related?

As far as we know, nobody in Colorado has been contacted by a guide yet. These are press vehicles for the media, not for customers.
Can confirm at least on the R1S side. Denver metro of Colorado and no guide contact for me yet. Though, if a guide wants to change that please reach out. 😎

Biden doesn't seem to realize anyone but Ford or GM make EVs in America, so I doubt it.
Not to get political but the Unions and the money feeding between politicians and ford and GM is why I'm glad companies like Tesla and Rivian are coming in. Don't even get me started on these stupid dealership laws. Hence why yes you wont see Biden supporting a fantastic American start up like he is Ford and GM.

One more in the certain these are press vehicles camp...this does raise a question on the nuances of delivery day and how that will look. Are there Carvana style Rivian flatbeds ready to go? Will Amazon drop it off at my front door and email me a pic?
