Wonder if Rivian's lending R1T's for "secret" Auto/EV publishers or Auto/EV-bloggers to do reviews?

He bought one to do a tear down video I know that for sure, but a preview vehicle, who knows
He's a consultant to the company and was previously consulting for the investors pre-investment. Not sure how that impacts his ability to opine.

You heard or know that Sandy consulted with Rivian & Rivian's investors?

I'd like to Sandy Munro get a preview as well.
I sure hope, if Rivian is offering review vehicles, they do not go with Sandy Munroe.

Sandy is a consultant who specializes in improving manufacturing efficiency and reducing costs, but when it comes to reviewing a vehicle especially an EV, he is like giving a flashy new ipad to your grand parent who never owned technology.

I personally think, If Rivian is giving out review vehicles, they should start with Kyle from Inside EV US, because he is the only one in North America who does a proper and objective review of EVs.

LOL, and I totally agree. Even watching him go through the very simple Rivian configurator was funny & a bit painful!

At 42:00 they talk about Rivian and the media and basically nothing yet where most companies have already done a few press events etc

I just want to watch Scotty stand in front of an R1T with the hood up and wave his hands around while talking.

I recall a couple of years ago he did a video on the R1T and loved it. But who know, he may throw a donkey bray or two at it.

I'd like it if select, high quality, aftermarket accessory makers get advanced access to the R1T so they can have products available at, or shortly after, launch.
yeah including WeatherTech so we can quickly replace those silly chilewich mats! 🤣
