I sent this video to all of my nearest and dearest friends. I want them on the Rivian trail too.

I generally want to avoid having stuff - what I own and use - define and constrain me, but Rivian is pushing all my buttons. Now if I could make my mind - R1T or R1S. It doesn't help that all of the cool videos show the R1T. Fair advertising ought to give them equal time.

Exactly what I was thinking!

Wonder what kind of charging set up it was (charging capacity etc.)?

That really looks promising.

Can't wait to see it!

I noticed that too. Also, where was the frunk? There’s a shot of the guys doing work under the hood - where the frunk should be.

yes... and thrown together rather hastily I believe they stated in order to take advantage of the opportunity
