Some new photos are out of the R1T in El Cap Granite!
Those are from a video posted to Instagram reportedly by the neighbor of a Rivian employee who showed him the truck and took him for a ride. The post has since been deleted (and said employee likely fired!).
At the very least they're going to be in trouble from their superiors.Wow, fired? 😮
I'm not going to tell anyone... so if any employee that lives around me that wants to give me a ride, I won't tell anyone.It is a BIG NO-NO to take civilians in rides on test and development vehicles. HUGE liability. The giant red button is an electrical kill switch for BEV vehicles and an emergency fire suppression system for ICE vehicles. That tells you the seriousness that anything could happen in a development vehicle. So yes, I could see an employee getting fired for taking people joy-riding in a vehicle.
Nice color but I just got out of a gray pickup truck. You know how that goes. I chose the LA Silver. For some reason I think that the silver fits the trucK more than any other color. It seems to compliment the sleek look of the truck and does anybody notice that silver is the color used mostly when Rivian advertises the R1T?
