Hey All! I placed my ore order for the R1T a couple weeks ago but missed being accepted into the launch window. Why? Because I hadn’t heard of Rivian til a couple weeks ago after placing a order for the Model Y and went to IMMEDIATELY place order on R1T. My question to you: is anyone in the Launch order that would be willing to switch? Why? Cause I fricken LOVE that launch color and it won’t be offered elsewise. Cheers!

Welcome @Tim87!
Has Rivian given you any delivery timeline info so far? Are you planning to own both the Model Y and Rivian R1T?
Good luck finding someone that wants to give up their launch order!

Welcome to the forum Tim! If you're looking to switch you've come to the right place. There's a lot of people on here that snagged a launch edition.

I’m doubtful that Rivian will allow that. They will likely force the original applicant to take legal possession of the vehicle or cancel the order altogether. And depending on the state, taking and then changing ownership could create a tax event and also cause issues with the federal tax credit.

Welcome @Tim87 If worse comes to worst you can always wrap your R1T in that launch edition green.

Hey there! I’m set for Jan 2022 delivery. Thank you, I hope I find someone open to switching!

When I spoke to Customer Service twice I was told they’d allow it. Hope they hold true to that when I find someone.

Timing is everything. I am very happy waiting on Jan-Feb 2022 not only because my current lease ends then but this will allow for people to get their vehicles in June-July 2021 and they can provide feedback prior to getting mine.

Very excited for my R1S though.
