    Headroom & Self Parking

    You don't as Rivian has said they are not revealing this information at this time. I did read or hear something not too long ago from a Rivian rep that they might reveal this once they go production (Dec 2020). If you already pre-ordered, this information should be in your confirmation email...

    Headroom & Self Parking

    I have no specifics on head room but I clearly get the impression there is plenty of it, at least in the R1T but I have no reason to believe it would be any different in the R1S since it shares 85-90% of the components of the R1T. Plus, I've read they are basically the same vehicle from the B...

    Why I like the R1S

    Check out thread "3 early 2020 events Rivian will be hosting or attending." as should answer some of your questions. I have yet to hear of an event where Rivian has allowed the crowd to do anything more than view their EAVs. No touchy touchy of prototypes allowed, let alone kick the tires or...

    3 early 2020 events Rivian will be hosting or attending

    Rivian newsletter sent via email on Dec 27, 2019 announcing early 2020 events they will be at or hosting. (see below) If you didn't get one, make sure you subscribe to get their newsletter. Go to www.rivian.com. Each of the three events are open to the public though I think for CES you may...

    Why I like the R1S

    From Wikipedia: Sport utility vehicle (SUV) is a category of motor vehicles that combine elements of road-going passenger cars with features from off-road vehicles, such as raised ground clearance and four-wheel drive. There is no commonly agreed definition of an SUV, and usage varies between...

    Is the CCS charging network good enough?

    I updated my post (#51) with a link to Tom's InsideEVs article. A couple of quick excerpts: "Plug and Charge will be introduced in 2020: 2020 will bring the first vehicles that utilize ISO 15118 capability on the Electrify America network. Plug and Charge will dramatically improve the...

    Is the CCS charging network good enough?

    This YT video seems rather timely for this thread. Alex from his E for Electric yt channel posted an interesting video where his guest Tom Moloughney, an InsideEVs contributor, gave a report of an exclusive interview he had with EA's CEO, COO and I believe the director of technology to...

    "... Rivian will integrate Alexa into its electric pickup and SUV"

    As reported by TechCrunch Rivian announces ahead of CES that it will integrate with Alexa. Source and to read rest of the article: https://techcrunch.com/2020/01/06/amazon-backed-rivian-will-integrate-alexa-into-its-electric-pickup-and-suv/ I didn't realize Rivian had placed a camera that...

    Is the CCS charging network good enough?

    I see you're taking a page out of Rivian's "under promise and over deliver." ;) Even RJ is more optimistic with a 20,000 to 40,000 target of EVs produced in their first full year (2021). But why can't it be. The industry needs to stop building more proprietary or specific connector type...

    Who has reserved and why?

    Yea, and that "somebody" is Volkswagen. Like @Cosmacelf I'm not surprised either. Volkswagen created Electrify America with $2 billion in funding as part of its emissions scam (aka diesel-gate) settlement with the U.S. and California. Now whether it was part of the settlement or an oversight...

    Pre-order number

    Unless you work for Rivian, nope. Join the club of the unknown and bask in its wonderment.

    Autopilot and LIDAR

    To clarifiy, Rivian will "eventually" provide Level 3 autonomy, but at launch it will be Level 2. I have yet to read or hear of Rivian claiming full autonomous "by the release date." As reported by Teslarati from when Rivian was at the NY auto show and I believe this is still the current...

    Why I like the R1S

    Word of caution, that spec sheet is well over a year old and some things have changed. E.g. both models are slightly longer by a couple inches. When I was talking to the R1S team lead at the Normal, IL event last October he said he had to scrimp and scrap for every little bit space to make...

    Who has reserved and why?

    Even though Rivian has said they will not have dealerships they have NOT announced the details of service centers, despite what others have speculated. Charles Sanderson, Rivian's chief engineer, has said if there is not a service center near you, they will provide white glove like service. If...

    Wattzilla charger

    Correction. Meant the Wall Wattz products, not Waltzilla. I corrected my post above. There's just one flavor of the Waltzilla and it's 80 amp for $1795 and clearly hardwired. Interesting, that extra 5 amps (compared to the Wall Wattz 75 amp) will cost an extra $750! ... and it's an interior...

    Wattzilla charger

    Still trying to decide if I should go for a larger EVSE to future proof my investment, right size it for the Rivian 11kw on board charger, or go with a smaller EVSE since I really don't need that much charging power as my daily mileage has been significantly been reduced. Another factor in the...

    Rivian hitting the road again - announces some Fall 2019 destinations

    Doh! My email provider/server was down so I had no idea about the email invite. Thanks @Cougs ! OP has been updated with Seattle event date and times. Now that I received my RSVP confirmation, I've got some research and planning to do since I've never been to Seattle.

    Rivian hitting the road again - announces some Fall 2019 destinations

    OP has been updated with the following: Rivian has announced via email (invite) their Atlanta private event will be September 13, 2019, 6-9pm ET. In case you were wondering, this will be like previous events where "touching and sitting inside the vehicles is prohibited." Rivian email goes on...

    Rivian hitting the road again - announces some Fall 2019 destinations

    If they plan them like the Denver event, a pre-order holder was allowed to bring a guest.

    Atlis - scam?

    Total agree. At this point it appears they don't have much capital and very little resources to properly build and test their pickup, let alone mass produce them. I wish them the best as I do hope they succeed, but at this stage I would feel, say, uncomfortable investing in them. Also agree...
