    I discussed this with I believe the marketing person at the Seattle meetup. I told her that they would sell a ton of merch if there was a way to do so. She said that they are aware of the demand however currently since they have never really sold anything that it would change their tax status and it wasn't worth it yet. I don't know how all that works but I assume it boils down to a financial decision. It seems that there would be an easy way to get around that but again I have no clue as to anything with that world.

    I was thinking the same thing, like create a parent company (e.g. Rivian Enterprises) where under it would include the current Rivian Automotive along with, say, a new LLC or separate taxing entity that doesn't impact the tax status of Rivian Automotive. Well beyond my pay grade. Glad to read though Rivian plans on launching something. (I can already hear my wallet and credit card screaming. :surprised:)
