That’s helpful- makes sense. Good thinking guys!
In that case, I am 125mi from Portland, ME, and Albany, NY, 150mi from Boston, even NYC is just 200mi away— so that’s great!As for VT, I don’t think that will hurt you too badly. My guess on service is that it’s based on distance. So you should have enough demand in neighboring states that are within 500 miles or so.
I’m actually wondering (hoping!) if a factory delivery might be more of an option for us outliers, assuming Rivian has the supply (ha!). They could “deliver” the vehicle without the hassle of arranging transport for a low volume, widely dispersed area. Easier for them, and having increased delivery options could help fill small gaps in their production formula. 🤞🏽 I’d be more than happy to take a last road trip in my current truck and adventure back to VT! 😀🛻🏕 I’ll just let my guide know I’m ready...I’m still hopeful for a factory delivery option, but also understand that even factory delivery will likely be based on your location since they don’t want to put a bunch of vehicles into locations where they don’t have adequate service capacity yet.
