Right on!It sounds like this newly-forming family is destined for some great adventures soon! In the first ten minutes, I got in and ordered the R1T in Launch Green with the Forest Edge interior, 20-inch wheels, and the camp stove. Looking forward to learning more about the charging network locations/partnerships and their capabilities. Hoping the Rockies region from Denver north into Canada gets its share of stations.
Current charging station options look limited through the major players. Many charging maps (especially ElectrifyAmerica) are sparse through Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and the Dakotas. Also, there appears to be little in the way of non-Tesla stations to allow anxiety-free cross country travel above I-70. I know these areas may not be hotbeds for a high number of residents to purchase EVs, but they will be popular adventure destinations for Rivian owners to visit and explore. Even along that Interstate, Wyoming is not well served, forcing a likely diversion through Colorado to have options to recharge.
At some point, highway charging stations will be fairly ubiquitous, which is part of my reasoning for going with the lighter and less expensive 135 KW battery, rather than the 180 KW version. I know the 180 will give another 100 miles of range, but I believe the future will bring a richer network of charging options, and the reduced weight of the 135 KW battery should be an advantage off-road. In Seattle last October, I seem to recall hearing RJ address the denser nature of future charging networks that should alleviate concerns about range. I know that won't happen overnight, but we are on the front wave of EV Adventuring and it's going to be fun!
Now 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.

I’d second or third a tan option!!How do I find order tracker number?
I ordered 3 of these, first order 11/20/2018 @ 7:45 am
I configured on 7/16/20.
When Configuring I had some problems as some things weren't clear and accidentally ordered Adventure thinking it was Adventure/Launch Edition. I had to call to clean it up. thank god I did or I would have been waiting another year.
My Wife ordered the R1S and I ordered the R1T.
I ordered Launch Edition, Granite with Green interior and 22's.
We are both disappointed with Colors both inside and out. Some of these look like colors from 1970's Mustangs or Dodge Challengers.
We agree Strongly that a Tan interior is needed!!! Would love a Desert tan metallic Exterior too!
Does anyone at Rivian look at this site?
It will be hard to show these off to all the people I know wanting to see these when they aren't colors you really like. Not to mention I hoped to have this for a long time and would never be totally Happy! I guess you could repaint but much bigger issue redoing interior.
I hope RJ and Brian read these and help us out!!!
Thanks for having this forum!
