Thought this part was interesting:

New York International Auto Show EV Exhibition
The 2021 New York International Auto Show will play an important role in supporting one of New York State's top green energy priorities by focusing on electric vehicles. At this year's show, nearly an entire floor of the Javits Center will be dedicated to electric vehicles. The exhibition will feature a total of five indoor test tracks, giving show attendees the opportunity to experience first-hand the feeling of an all-electric vehicle. Nine manufacturers will be participating in this multi-brand demonstration, which is expected to introduce EVs to thousands of attendees. This special exhibition will host more than two dozen companies including the nine automakers, New York Power Authority, Charge NY, NYSERDA, and a number of home, mobile and curbside charging partners committed to consumer education and EV adoption. The Show will also present ten personal electric mobility companies to the public by featuring a wide range of two-wheeled electric vehicles for attendees to experience on controlled test tracks.

Given that 9 manufacturers will attend, I'd say the odds of Rivian being one them are pretty good, considering there aren't that many that actually sell EVs in the U.S. Here's my list of most likely candidates:

  1. Audi
  2. BMW
  3. Chevrolet/GMC/Cadillac
  4. Ford
  5. Hyundai/Kia
  6. Jaguar
  7. Lucid
  8. Nissan
  9. Porsche
  10. Rivian
  11. Tesla
  12. Volkswagen
  13. Volvo

Does anyone know for sure if Rivian will positively be there. Am also wondering if they will be at the Chicago Auto Show July 15 through July 19. Would be a fun train trip from L.A. to Chicago.

Rivian will let us know SOON. We should find out by September 2021 whether they plan to attend the Chicago and NY auto shows this year. November at the latest.

The NY Auto Show is holding an EV test track where people can ride in vehicles from Chevrolet, Ford, Kia, Nissan, Polestar, Porsche, and Volvo.

Too bad Rivian wasn't able to add their name to this list.
