No one has Order #1, because the ordering system started at #1000. I think the lowest I've seen on here is around #1200.

Of course and thanks! 200 is pretty good...

Just think... we should hopefully know by this time next week who is (are) the earliest forum member(s) contacted by their Rivian Guide. God help them! I'd suggest turning Off messaging.

I’m 3770 (2770 once you subtract the 1000). You guys in the hundreds must have put your deposits down like the day they announced the vehicles!

Gotta love the optimism on this site! Rivian says “ beginning in May”. We hear “May 1st”. 😂

FWIW, my order number is 1234 (I assume order #234).
Yep, @AdamL is the lowest I've seen. I have 1472 also from 11/26/18, and it was up to 2495 by 11/30/18.

I have to assume there were a number of tests, and possibly some employee orders prior to opening to the public 11/26/18.

What is interesting is that the data gathered here reflected order numbers approaching the 9k range by April 1, 2019. However, the folks that built the pre-order site state there were 3670 orders as of that date so it seems there may have also been a lot more abandoned carts and cancellations than we guessed at the time.

LOL, I just found that code & theory page today too. @electruck , do you have confirmation that abandoned carts still increment the number? If so, we could extrapolate to get a better idea.

FYI, current rate appears to be about 44% if the 3670 is correct. And I'm sure they would want to tout order rate before cancelations...

Rivian made there debut at the LA Auto Show in late November 2018. They were taking $1000 deposits at the show. I would think ones who signed up then were the first few hundred.

I was at that show. I remember the Rivian booth setup right across an aisle from Ford. The reason I remember is that I went there for the Ford display that revealed the new Ranger pickup. I was so jazzed to see it. What a dip-sh!t I was... I will say the Rivian truck caught my eye and the battery platform skateboard standing up straight was very impressive.

Just wished I had ponied up the $ right there on the spot! 🤬


P.S. NO, never bought a Ranger. I bought a Toy 4Runner instead

No, haven't really dug into it that deeply (and don't really care to at this point). But... it seems Shopify may support customer follow up by emailing links to abandoned carts so order number most likely gets generated up front. Also not particularly reasonable to assume a constant conversion rate over time as public confidence in Rivian and BEVs, charging infrastructure, etc as a whole has improved considerably since late 2018.

Not to name names, but I'm guessing the initials of the recipient of order #1 are either "R.J.S." or "Jeff Bezos".
