    As an Uber/Lyft driver eyeing this vehicle, the 3rd row is important to me. It allows me to take XL fares, which are much more lucrative. My 6 passenger 2018 Explorer's rear seat is used 5% of the time. However, being able to theoretically carry more than 4 passengers allows people to call for an XL vehicle even if they only need 3 seats but more cargo room. The frunk will be helpful if I take 6 passengers and luggage.

    Anybody notice that in spite of the battery, motor and 3rd row seat options, that the curb weights of the 105kWh, 135 kWh and 180kWh models are all the same at 3470kgs?

    The motors are the same on all models, I believe. It's almost certain that the spec sheet that has been released is for a particular configuration and that weight will vary slightly based on battery pack and options. However, in an almost 3-ton vehicle the weight variances will probably amount to very little relatively speaking.

    Does anyone have a clear exterior and/or interior of the R1S rear cargo area?
    Width of the rear door/tailgate?
    Ability to fold down all the seats for a mattress?
    Looking for these type of angle shots of the R1S.

    If you go to Google Images and search "Rivian R1S interior" you'll find some shots of the rear quarters interior. I haven't seen the dimensions you're requesting, but I have seen a report that the second row seats fold flat.

    There are armrests and wood and fabric trim for the third row seats. I'm wondering if that part of the vehicle will lose that trim if one orders the 180 kWh battery that dispenses with the third row seat. It will look a little odd to have all that trim where there is no seat.
