Welcome @Justin Martino! Did you place your R1S order recently or have you had it for a while?

I placed my order over the weekend and am leaning towards keeping my reservation. I need a large SUV to hold two large dogs or two road bikes in the back. I want a vegan interior and a sleek exterior. I don't want a Tesla (again). I would love for Rivian to come out and try to make things right with the community. Being such a new order, I likely still have a couple years of waiting so we will see what happens next and if anything better comes out in the mean time. It's certainly hasn't been a boring 3 days of ordership!

Time and time again, I raised concerns regarding vehicle pricing and manufacturing deadlines, but no one listened, even though I have extensive experience launching and pricing vehicles. It wasn’t until my (often less experienced) male colleagues raised the exact same ideas that the Chief Growth Officer (internally called Chief Commercial Officer) would respond. Never in my years in the auto industry had I experienced such blatant marginalization.

Schwab said she warned executives that Rivian’s vehicles were underpriced but she was rebuffed. Behl later agreed Rivian would need to raise vehicle prices after a male executive raised the issue with him, the lawsuit states.

Schwab said she also voiced skepticism around Rivian’s manufacturing and delivery targets during sales and operations meetings in September. Rivian last week disclosed in an amended securities filing it plans to deliver 1,000 R1Ts by the end of the year.
