Rivian I think wants to own the whole vertical. They'll get the data, have extra access with service, and guides will help with claims.

Or no news is still a high possibly.

This would be my guess with the recent photos showing off the Yakima products, or that might come next week after they have time to make any photos and videos pretty.

Why else load up the R1T if not for a photo shoot?

I will double-down on my prediction from last week. We will probably get information on the Yakima products, complete with pretty photos, and some info on accessory pricing. Seems like the logical explanation after they had vehicles loaded up with tents and bike racks driving around town two weeks ago.

I have one possibility that no one has said yet. I predict we won't get any announcements. I think we will have a lull in information until May. I hope I'm wrong.

Exciting because last couple of weeks pretty much advertised what was coming next... not this time!

I don't think Rivian's "Release Thursday" is as predictable as Microsoft's "Patch Tuesday"

It's looking like today may be pretty quiet, like there vehicles. :cool:

Prediction (and wishful thinking on my part), they'll announce a factory tour and pickup experience for free or some nominal "processing" cost.
Free, or at a reduced vehicle cost as no destination charge will be needed.

One problem that could pop up is that many insurance carriers want all vehicles in the household included in their policy. More so for all vehicles driven by the named insured. Maybe Rivian will offer coverage for all vehicles in a partnership with an existing carrier. State Farm is right down the street. I'm not interested in insuring with them, but they have the actuaries, underwriters and infrastrucure in place.

Considering they are still hiring for a lot of these positions I doubt we will see anything come June/Aug. I think everything will be very sparse we and will simply get delivery with nothing infrastructure wise up and running except basics like an App, our Guide, some goodies/gear.

On that note, I am busy the rest of the day so notifications/updates from me, someone else BOLO.
