    Placed my deposit for the R1T back in June 2019.

    Tough choice...I want/need to replace an older BMW X3 that my wife drives, and I have been looking to get a truck.
    So for starters - decided to go with the R1T first - if we like it and once I can see the R1S in person - if not too large, might be able to convince the wife into considering getting an R1S. On a positive note - at least they may be able to charge each other...LOL.

    Both vehicles look awesome, but the wife prefers not to drive a truck - but likes the size of her X3.
    Hoping Rivian will be doing more shows closer to home (I unfortunately had to miss the NY car show) so I can see these up close and in person!

    R1T deposit put down December 2018 after seeing the vehicles at the LA Auto Show. Hadn't heard about them 2 weeks before that until I googled electric pickup, timing was great as we just happened to have a trip to LA planned. I would have already had a Tesla but need more ground clearance/offroad capability where we live in WA state.

    I did a preorder in Nov 2018 and then we added another in beginning Oct 2019. So now we have R1T and R1S. We also want to add EV Work vans to our fleet hopefully that will happen for general public.

    Hi ... new here. Just a silly question maybe someone can answer. I put down my $1 K yesterday for the R1T preorder. Does Rivian send you your place in line # or is it random ?

    TY

    I don't think you will receive anything other than a confirmation that you have preordered the R1T. I think it took 24hrs from when I made my deposit to when I received notice/confirmation of my deposit (and my confirmation email did not include any information concerning my place in line and I have no idea at this time what my place in line might be nor how many preorders may have been made).

    Thanks Rad ..... That seems a bit vague on Rivian's part :(. I did receive my confirmation the same day with no additional information as you mentioned. They should send folks a place in line at the very minimum for the faithful $1K deposit. Just my opinion on the topic.

    Hi Estruck. Welcome and I also am a new to the board.

    After I ordered mine, I sent Rivian an email asking about a confirmation number, and this was the reply back:

    "Sorry for any confusion. To keep things simple, we’ve revised our preorder terms and conditions and removed confirmation numbers. To cancel a preorder, simply email [email protected] from the same address you used to make the preorder.

    They also never gave a 'position in line'. I'm assuming the reason is the more expensive configurations will be built first, and with the deposit - there was no option yet to do any configurations.

    Thanks JIMBO .... So I assume the configuration is a long list of options making these a custom ordered vehicle.

    They have not revealed number of preorders or place in line.

    I'm guessing they will stage access to the configurator by preorder date, and provide production ETA based on your configuration & place in line. Pure speculation though...because it is how I would manage access to the configurator without crashing it.

    Well maybe just maybe if RIVIAN is following this forum they might let all the preorder folks know the plan without everyone speculating possibilities.

    The plan is this and it's on the FAQ on Rivian's website.

    www.rivian.com/FAQ

    When do deliveries begin?

    Deliveries begin at the end of 2020, based on your place in line and configuration of your vehicle. Fully equipped vehicles with the highest performance level and 135 kWh/180 kWh packs will enter production first. Our 105 kWh pack will follow within 12 months of the start of production.

    So if your reservation holder 0001 and you want a 105, keep waiting... If @ESTRUCK or @Rad want a 135 or 180 with everything, you might be in luck even though you pre-ordered just this week.

    Hopefully that helps and welcome to the Rivian waiting room.

    Thanks for the information Jimmy. That clears it up and my plan is the 180 of course.

    @aAlpine, that's been the case since the beginning. Give me some time to find the article. It might even be a video with Brian Gase at the NYIAS.

    Just placed my deposit on an R1T. I waited to preorder due to financial situation... I don't want it in 2020, 2021 (or even 2022) will work better for me.

    I didn't know this forum existed until after I placed my order. Now I want all the information I can get. And RIGHT NOW please! :CWL:

    Tire options?

    The Pirelli tires featured with the traveling R1T and R1S vehicles are far more aggressive than anything I will ever need. Will it be possible to order Pirelli Zero tires installed from the factory to better meet my driving needs and perhaps increase the vehicle range?

    Thanks
