2019 Zero SR/F and 2018, BMW i3
Thank you @RoadWarrior ! I am betting the noise dampening will be good since they are targeting a luxury segment. Not sure if people here know anything about it, but I would also imagine that the battery in the bottom of the car should help a lot with noise.Just to add to this, it also depends on the quality of noise dampening that Rivian is able to achieve. We swapped road tires for all terrains on our Lexus GX and if I roll the window down there is some slight noise, but cruising at 70 with the windows up you hear nothing different because the Lexus noise dampening is so solid on those trucks.
By the way, I’m new here (first post) and just reserved the R1S last week (Adventure, White (may change to green), white interior, 20” AT) and looking forward to getting to know everyone here!
First kid is on the way so upgrading one of our vehicles to something larger (keeping the GX which we love but which is also a premium gas hog) and have been EV shopping but couldn’t find anything that I thought looked great and could also pull our boat. Had seen Rivian stuff online occasionally but never paid much attention until last week. Fell in love with the R1S design (not to mention the price compared to the $75k Tahoes and $100k Range Rovers that were starting to tempt us when we couldn’t find the right EV) and placed a deposit the same day!
