They both cost $2000 now? It seems that they are saying both the Ocean Coast and Forest Edge are premium interiors with the same value on the configurator. Given that they can’t deliver Ocean Coast until at least the fall and many on here are Launch Edition buyers who presumably expected a priority delivery it seems like it wouldn’t be a difficult ask to request that the Forest Edge interior be a no charge substitute. Do I sound crazy?

Yes, I think it’s unreasonable. If you want to use ‘new’ pricing for comparison, then you would also need to Pay ‘new’ pricing on all other options to be fair, which is a worse deal for you. I don’t think it’s reasonable to cherry-pick and say you want this lower old price and this newer credit.
Thanks for the opinion. I don’t see the logic though. Rivian says the 2 interiors are the same value (so presumably a similar cost to them). Where is the additional loss for Rivian to allow a customer who has waited for years for one color to switch to the other color as a backup without being penalized financially? it wasn’t us who had anything to do with the color we chose being unavailable and asking someone who has allowed Rivian to use our deposits interest free for years to then pay for what they now consider an equal cost option seems unreasonable.
