    I put in my pre-order deposit for a R1S, but would like to change it to a R1T. Is it possible to just switch it over, or should I cancel the R1S order and then order the R1T??

    I believe the preorder email address was [email protected]. I bet they can help you-

    LiL'O Annie I had the same issue. They give you the option of canceling your current order and starting a new one or you can wait until the "system" goes live and you can change it then. You are not locked into the R1S with this reservation.

    Thanks Revelation!

    Two reasons for the change. First, because the R1S will come out a year later, and second because after discussing it with my husband we decided the pickup would be a little more "all-around" useful.

    I mistakenly reserved the R1S and when inquired about changing I was told, and this is a quote, "We can’t make the exchange internally currently. However, not to worry, as a preorder customer, you will be able to choose either the R1T or R1S in our vehicle configurator which will be live in late 2019. This will also secure your place in line"

    Sounds like things are progressing as planned then if they are trying to put out a “vehicle configurator” be the end of 2019. Crossing my fingers!

    Would anyone have an idea how many pre-orders have already been processed, is there any way one can find out an average #

    Only Rivian would know. There was never a mention of priority for early deposits. I would think deposits are just an estimate of those interested. When the orders open up the serious people will get taken care of and the cancellations will begin.

    Rivian was quite clear that you can preorder either one and decide which you want at the time of actual ordering, so no sweat and no need to do anything at this time.

    I am new to EV and intrigued by the R1T. I'm considering putting a deposit down very soon. I've heard that vehicles will start being shipped to customers in "late 2020. I likely won't be ready for a new vehicle until Summer 2021.....In the event my preorder would be ready sooner do you think they'd let me put off production, but stay at the front of the line? I suppose this might be a question geared directly to Rivian, but figured it wouldn't hurt to ask here too :)

    Yea, I would agree. Any response from anybody on this forum would be pure speculation unless they got the info directly from Rivian. So, did you happen to pose your question to Rivian? I suspect there are others on this forum that would be also interested in Rivian's response.
