I was reading this article from the LA Times about how the market for bulletproof vehicles has been significantly expanding with an estimated 200,000 to 300,000 armored vehicles on streets worldwide. It got me wondering if Rivian might make the R1S bulletproof like other car companies such as Audi, BMW, and Land Rover.

It's crazy to think about but it could be an interesting option for Rivian. I think the R1S could be a great vehicle to drive around politicians and other VIPs.

I agree, I think it would have to be done by an outside company. I have a feeling someone is going to do it just because they can. But with all the added weight it's going to ruin the range/performance.

I doubt Rivian will produce it themselves and instead outsource it to an armoring company.
You're probably right. After reading this article I'm really curious to see if someone could pull it off, regardless if it's Rivian or another company.
