They're not struggling to attract buyers. They're struggling to build at projections, so they're not meeting the demand for orders they already have. Meanwhile, the company is burning through investment cash.second question, why is RJ or Rivian not discussing this?
I believe that the Large and Max battery pack use the same cells, but differ in the number to get the higher capacity of the Max. My understanding is that the extra cells are located toward the rear of the skateboard that uderpins the vehicle. By the way, the larger size seems to be the primary reason Rivian killed off the Max for the R1S; there is less room under the R1S due both to the SUV's shorter wheelbase and the intrusion of the 3rd row seat.New to the board and waiting for 400 mile max pack. My question is how?
1. Improved battery tech
2. Larger battery, if so where…..bottom of frunk or tire well?

I cannot pull it up which is interesting.I found this thread helpful.
Won’t let me post the link. It’s on Rivian forums.com. Not Rivian “owners” forum.
It’s all speculation, from both sides. I got a delivery estimate for Q1 2023 too but haven’t heard anything since that December email. I agree with it getting pushed to 2024 as mentioned above. I’m still on the fence about changing to the large pack. I don’t tow often, but wanted the max pack to negate range anxiety and facilitate extreme backcountry trekking.
The Silverado EV will be available with 400 mile range in case you didn't know.I cannot pull it up which is interesting.
If I don't get anything that looks promising then I may have to move on in 2023. I have money on cyber truck, Rivian for about 3 years now, and previously Bollinger. I have been sold on EV's for about a decade and have been waiting patiently......maybe its not meant to be. Meanwhile, my 2004 pickup runs pretty well.
Thanks for your reply.
