I’d bitch and whine but still buy one. Inflation is real at the moment, perhaps, temporary but it’s here.

They’ve quietly removed thousands in value while keeping the price mostly unchanged.

If they were to raise the price on top of all of the devaluation, I’d be out in a heartbeat.

As it is now, I think the price/value is fair.

This is why Rivian can increase their price, should they decide to do so. I don't recall anyone, other than employees, that have received a Rivian. I'm not aware of anyone, other than possibly employees, that have purchased a Rivian and locked in the price. I don't know of anyone that has a Guide, that has locked in a price. It would be good to know if any have.

We know that Rivian is in production, according to reliable sources, but we don't know at what rate. A report states they have a tent set up, where possibly some Rivians may be stored, but I'm not aware if anyone has actually seen them stored. Rivian is silent in their communications, possibly due to the S-1 filing. We don't know if any deliveries are being made at this time, or planned in the very near future, but it's reasonable to expect that we would know if any are being made.

It would be good to hear about deliveries taking place to the General Public, prior to the IPO. That would ease my concern on price increases. My fear is they are stockpiling their vehicles and will mass ship once the IPO goes through. If they do this, the only reason I can see for holding until after the IPO, is to increase the price, or the S-1 filing forbids them from delivering during this period.

As you see in the quote above, many will be willing to absorb the increase. Rivian won't have any problem selling what they are possibly stockpiling now. Has it been a month, or thereabout, since we heard about the first employee deliveries? Are we hearing about Guide contacts? Lots of questions.....

I mean it’s all relative. I’m now semi-seriously looking at a Taycan given the delays…I’m sad they haven’t been “selling” to employees for a year now as they are the best beta testers and I’m always worried about downtime caused by maintenance problems.
