Added my configuration for R1S AdventureNow that the configurator has been released, it is time to organize a new list where everyone can share what they ordered. As vehicles reach production, we will be able to see as a community which configurations reach pre-order holders first, and which configurations are built later. Please take 2 minutes to join the effort and enter your configuration.

Congrats @lamartian! How is the Polestar to drive and live with? I haven't been able to drive one yet.Added - Rivian blue w/white! Finally getting a car with color after years of black/white/gray. We got a Polestar 2 about 5 weeks ago and are now in love with EVs.
Welcome @Gavin! Which ways do you prefer the R1T over the Lightning? and vice-versa?Added: color planned is either Limestone or Forest Green. Can’t commit yet till I see Limestone on a real truck vs just the configuration photoshop images.
other potential changes: also put down a deposit on the Lightning. Now it just comes down to who get me a truck first
In most ways I prefer the Rivian, but I worry a bit as New Mexico will not have a service center (not Rivian’s fault as NM has old laws the protect dealerships).
Lightning: local service, established brand, frunk is killer (Rivian should borrow that design as it is easier to load and unload).
Would you still check out the Lightning when its out?Lightning: local service, established brand, frunk is killer (Rivian should borrow that design as it is easier to load and unload).
Rivian: size (don’t need a full sized truck), much cooler in almost all ways. Very unique and I do love a David vs Goliath story. More “fun” and off road adventuring, vs more construction site utility.
Truthfully either would be a great electric truck.
With covid cancelling a few vacations we decided to buy some land in the Jemez Mountains on the rim of a super volcano. Suddenly my Chevy Bolt, which is an amazing city/suburbs car, didn’t quite fit my out of town needs.
We love the Polestar! It's been a fitting replacement for our beloved MT GTI - super quick when you want it to be with a much smoother, but still sporty ride (we didn't get performance package). It's perfect as our DD for a 5 mile commute in a college town. (So far we've just used a slow wall charger at home and only plug it in on the weekends; I think we get about 18% charge in 12 hours.) We also love the Android Automotive system since we're already dedicated Google/Pixel/Nest users. The only downside is that I find some of the black cloth on the doors marks a bit easily. Otherwise, though, it's fantastic.
