  1. Charging Port

    Rivian General Discussion Forum
    Has there been a final decision on which side of the vehicle the charge port is located on the R1S? I am planning a new garage layout and I have to inform the electrician of the location of my Level 2 charger.
  2. Rivian Test Drive Info

    Rivian General Discussion Forum
    We have a little bit of information about when Rivian will start offering test drives to people. Someone reached out to Rivian and they hold him that they will reveal the details of their test drive program "closer to the start of production." So that means we'll likely hear something in early...
  3. Rivian Front License Plate

    Rivian General Discussion Forum
    Does anyone know where the front license plates are going to be located on Rivians? Where I'm from in Canada license plates are required on the front and back of a car. Are there any photos of one with license plates on? I'm interested to see what it looks like. It's a shame because the front...
  4. Flat towing a Rivian

    Rivian General Discussion Forum
    I need some clarification on this because I've heard different answers from different people/sources. Can you flat tow a Rivian or EVs in general? Or do they need to be on a trailer? I've seen articles that say that give a hard no on being able to flat tow EVs because it can do a lot of damage...
  5. Rivian Logo

    Rivian General Discussion Forum
    I was scrolling through the Rivian website and I found their explanation for what their logo means. Aside from how simple and clean the logo looks it has some cool meaning behind it. For Rivian, their logo, a compass, means: The compass changed the way the world traveled. It fostered...
  6. Rivian Regenerative Braking

    Rivian General Discussion Forum
    I've been trying to find information on the R1S and R1T will use regenerative braking but I haven't found much aside from the fact that they will have regen braking. Based on some of the other EVs that are on the market, there's a couple of ways that Rivian can approach regen braking. Rivian...

  8. Rivian should hide the R1S' rear wiper

    Rivian General Discussion Forum
    This is a very small thing, but if Rivian wants to appeal to luxury SUV buyers, I think they need to take a page from luxury brands like Cadillac and Rolls-Royce and hide the rear wiper. It gives a more refined finish and make the back end more appealing.

If they can make this an affordable and rugged pickup then it could give a Rivian a run for their...

    Rivian and Ford announced today that Alexandra Ford English will join Rivian’s board of directors. She is director of Corporate Strategy for Ford Motor Company.

  18. Rivian Campers and Roof Rack Tents

    Rivian General Discussion Forum
    I've been thinking about getting a camper/tent for my R1T and from the photos I've seen Rivian has used Tepui tents with the R1T. Has anyone used Tepui tents before? Are they worth getting or is there another brand that's better for roof tents? On the flip side of that, what kind of campers do...

    Rivian General Discussion Forum
    Did anyone else notice the colors samples at the 1:59 mark of the latest Adventurous Forever video from Rivian? I think the blue is still my favorite but I really want to see the R1T in red.
