Haven't seen this article posted here yet:

I found this interesting: RJ said that among the pre-order configurations "'Trucks tend to be a little bit wilder on the colors,' he says. SUV customers are a bit more conservative.'" Makes sense I guess.

Interesting quote from the section discussing the Rivian Adventure Network...

“ Rivian is concentrating on the highest traffic corridors first.”

Will be interesting to see where exact there are located and what prime locations they miss out on. Because so far there's a lack of Rivian dealership locations along the east coast.

yeah, I'm in Colorado so my interests are different than yours, except that we probably both want as many as possible all across the continent.

This has been bothering me. I know CA is heavy for EV sales, but the East Coast has both high population and dense population. It's so odd, to me, that there's no locations planned between probably NY/DC and Atlanta, initially.

The stuff about the R2 and R3 vehicles stood out for me.

Rivian R1 Family To Be Followed By R2, R3

The R1 family of vehicles comprises the halo products, but lower-priced models are being planned. Scaringe says there's a whole slew of products to follow and the naming convention will continue, which means next up would be an R2 series of at least two smaller electric vehicles to coincide with the smaller platform they will ride on, then another platform for R3.
Rivian has not shown any of the future products, but the company is oriented to adventure-type trucks and SUVs. Executing means additional production capacity, different form factors, and different price points and markets, Scaringe says. It is reasonable to assume similar body styles but in different sizes.

I’m guessing the R2 series will be more Subaru / Audi Q3/5 like. Seems to fit better with their brand.

R2 in the size of a Q5 would be amazing, then I hope they do an R3 that is like the Audi Allroad/Subaru style vechicles.

If this happens I can definitely see 2 Rivians in our garage.
