Would be nice to see a show of hands of who's ordered so far. I'm in for a R1T with my $1k deposit!
Just voted, I am interested to see how many pre-orders have been sent in. I am interested in the R1S, not to keen on getting 1st year production model, maybe if I pre-order later in year I can get one that would be pretty much bug free. Also waiting to see how model y looks
Have my deposit down too for the R1T pickup.
Unless pre-orders are unexpectedly good or 1st year production is highly constrained, I think all pre-orders will probably end up being 1st year production model. But hopefully by Rivian being a smaller nimble startup, fixes to issues can be rolled out as an on-going basis and not delayed until next model years.
Placed an order for each, but only allowed one vote. Just thought I would skew the numbers a little bit.
Two deposits I'm impressed! Are you possibly going to purchase one of each or just waiting to decide which one to go with?
I changed the poll to allow multiple votes now.
After buying my wife a Model X last year and driving it for a few months, I was convinced that I wanted to buy the Tesla Truck - whenever it became available. I know there are no actual sightings of the truck yet, but after seeing some of the potential renditions, I started having my doubts if it was going to be a practical replacement for my current ICE.
Then Rivian came along. Both vehicles are esthetically pleasing to me, offer a lot of what I wanted/needed in a replacement vehicle, and there seems to be a plan in place for actual production. Tesla hasn’t produced anything as far as the truck other than “it’s coming soon”. I’m very happy with our Tesla and could very easily be pursuaded to purchase the Truck, but I’m leaning towards the Rivian vehicles right now as a replacement for both my Expedition and F150.
Isn't the Tesla truck supposed to be gargantuan? Tesla's rendering shows it capable of carrying another truck in its bed. And it looks like a semi tractor to me, quite unattractive.
Looks like most of us here are waiting for the R1T. Wonder if this will be representative of the actual sales ratio between the pickup and the SUV....
If the Tesla Truck looks like the rendering they’ve shown, then it won’t work for me. I’m not going to pay $100k+ for a vehicle to leave it outside in the elements 24 hours a day. Based on company specs, both the Rivian vehicles will comfortably fit in my garage.
What in the world is that? Who is going to buy a transport sized pickup that can't even be parked in a garage or clear highway overpasses?! Even if it were sized/scaled properly, that is one unattractive truck.
Pre-Ordered a R1S - May have to wait a little longer - time for me to start saving my pennies I have driven multiple SUVs - the last was a Volvo XC90 - Which I loved dearly - but I had the EV bug, so tested out my theory with a Ford Fusion Energi Titanium PHEV, I love the car in 100% EV, it is just ok in gasoline and more than ok in hybrid modes... But I am convinced that I am ready for 100% EV - I was really thinking of going with what appears to be the standard hatchback - but I was so hoping for an SUV - and along comes Rivian - been lurking for about 4 months, finally dove in - I am happy to have my place in line and may be tempted to switch to the R1T if I just can't wait any longer - it looks awesome too!
Daphne, I saw your post in the other thread about switching orders. Here's a question - what happens if you preorder a R1T and when it gets to your number in line you want to switch to R1S but it's not available yet? Do you automatically get put at the front of the R1S line based on the date you preordered/placed deposit?
Unfortunately all I have is that quote in my confirmation email - here is the complete response minus a few links and other personal details:
Your Rivian preorder is confirmed.
If at any time you decide you'd like to switch models, no need to cancel your order and lose your place in line — when it’s time to configure your vehicle, you’ll be able to switch between the R1T and R1S.
Production will begin in 2020. Fully equipped vehicles with the highest performance level and largest battery pack will enter production first. Our 180 kWh and 135 kWh packs will be available at launch with the 105 kWh to follow in 2021.
I would think that if you change to the other type of vehicle you would be slotted into the selected vehicles wait list - but I really can't guess how they would handle it, especially if you move from the truck to the SUV which I think is coming out a little later than the truck.
Just placed my pre order for my R1T Happy to join your ranks! Reading the comments here by other pre-orderers helped me make my decision... as did the recent Amazon investment.
How do I put a deposit for a rivian pickup?
Here you go my man: https://products.rivian.com (click on PREORDER NOW in bottom right corner).
Welcome to the site and let us know when you've preordered
I'm in the pre-order deposit line for the R1T. Would be nice to know my order number.
I'm leaning towards the mid-level battery pack option, seems like it has the weight savings to provide the best performance.
Have my deposit in on the R1T the concept and capabilities of an off road truck with that kind of range and torque have me super excited. Wanted a smaller to midsize truck and the storage options, vehicle design, and features included make this truck ideal for an outdoor enthusiast in the Pacific Northwest. And the timing of launch is perfect for when I was looking to buy a truck. I think the company is doing the right thing in innovating the design to fit the lifestyles of people who aren’t the typical electric vehicle crowd.
Yea this whole direct sales thing is definitely a new experience for me... from placing a deposit online to not having a sales advisor to bug for order updates and my place in the sale queue. Probably a good thing considering how obsessive I get when having a deposit down on a new car
I preordered an R1T in December and thought I might prefer an SUV like my Ford Explorer, GMC Envoy and GMC Terrain. Then the photos of the R1S came out and I decided the R1T had nearly everything I was looking for in an SUV plus the ability to carry building materials and oversize outdoor toys.
I can't wait to get the chance to build my truck.
