Nope. I’ve had sunroofs on every vehicle I’ve owned for at least the last 20 years and seldom ever open them. Having to remove and store glass roof panels seems like a major PITA, and it’s not even clear what they will be doing relative to storage for them. I do like a glass roof, but I’d prefer it just stay where it is.

This feature is big for me. I live in sunny California and use my moonroof all the time. It is also the feature that levels the playing field against the Hummer. Makes it harder for me to decide and I love that.

I’m not sure if I would use it or not. I had a Jeep Wrangler JK and the top was off most of the time. In my other vehicles, the sunroofs are never used. I now go out of my way to order vehicles without sunroofs.

I don’t need a removable roof, but I do love the glass roof. I’m looking forward to how big it is compared to my current moonroof. I will miss being able to open it though. Like @CommodoreAmiga, I use mine all the time— for ventilation and connection to the outside when it warms up.

Not for me - I usually have stuff on the roof for a minimum of 6 months a year (ski box) - and dealing with roof panels ain't always fun either. Liking the simplicity of the glass for my needs anyway.
The stuff on my roof 6 months is usually white and cold — I hate it! But come summer, all bets are off! 😎

Would love the slidable pano option above but I guess it all depends on how much these options cost and if the removable one will stow in the frunk like the Hummer does???

This is actually one of the features on the Hummer that caused me to reserve one and then switch my Rivian from an R1T to an R1S. GM nailed this with the Hummer, it is glass, the four pieces stack neatly in the frunk, and the rear window powers down. We have a convertible sports car and put the top down quite often.

I was told by CS that the removable roof would be two piece and would not fit in the frunk. They also initially indicated on the web site it would be solid, not glass.

My 4Runner has power down rear window and I really like that. Makes a huge difference when you want to ride with the windows down because air flows through vs getting trapped swirling around the cabin and being really noisy. I wish the R1T had that feature, but not willing to sacrifice the gear tunnel for it.

Anyone having second thoughts about their Launch Edition and wanting to wait for the “topless” model in 2022?

The Rivian R1T Will Get A Removable Roof Option In 2022.
I'm on the fence, I'm looking at ordering a (Chevy) C8 HTC so I don't know if I need this option but I do love the idea of it and I am trying to push my delivery out a little so perhaps it's a win / win.

Let me just say this, if whomever has an early reservation in the system for a 2021 R1T, I gladly take your spot so you can wait for the 2022 with a removable roof. I don't see the need for a removable roof. Wind in my hair only makes me lose it quicker.

😅 - I am on the fence as well but I will own a convertible again at some point so I'll probably not delay my R1T for that. I went max range so I'm already looking at 22 for my delivery.
