Please explain “CRICKETS”
"(US slang, humorous or derisive) Absolute silence; no communication. Derived from the cinematic metaphor of chirping crickets at night, signaling (otherwise) complete quiet. May be used alone or in metaphorically descriptive phrases.

Since then, I've received no response. Not a word. Just... crickets.
We asked for an explanation, but all we heard was the sound of crickets."

I’m one of those having a lease expire in July and last word I’ve heard was my delivery was delayed until July. Better start working on my next choice.
My suggestion is to look at the residual value in your lease agreement. The car is probably worth more than the purchase price in the lease since used car prices are through the roof. You could probably exercise the purchase option from the lease, drive it until you get the Rivian and sell for what you paid for it (or more).

Has anyone had their R1S LE delivered ? If so, tell us about the delivery and the ride please
Nothing. Only weak platitudes and emails about the environment. Emails about their charging network, and how Rivian has restocked their online gear shop, but nothing about the freaking product that they sell.
Why is there silence about further delays? Well, we won’t answer that, but have you seen the interview RJ gave about the gear tunnel?

Yes, their silence is something that seems to be one of their foremost attributes (?!?!)

And the band with Buddy Holly. Don’t forget that
