It's finally here!

After an agonizing two-year wait, my family and I are thrilled to have taken delivery of our Nimbus R1S SUV. We can't wait to take this adventure machine out on the open road and explore the great outdoors.

Thanks to the Rivian Owners Forum for all their support and advice during the wait - your insights and tips helped us stay patient and made the wait more bearable.

And a shoutout to Erik and the San Jose Service Center for an exceptional delivery experience. Erik was my First Mile Guide, too 🙌🏼. Shoutout to my Guide, Armin 🎙

We're looking forward to meeting other Rivian Adventurous Trailblazers and making unforgettable memories on the road. Welcome to the family, Nimbus 💨🚙💙!

No, I had EVs starting with Nissan Leaf 10+ years ago
This is our 2nd in 2023 in addition to Model Y.
Avg about ~325 miles on a full charge and usually charge at home.

Sweet looking R1S @Nihang007 congratulations and welcome to the forum! What stands out the most about it compared to the other EVs you've owned?

3 key takeaways:
1. Go off-road (aka electric SUV for off-road adventures)
2. Go fast ~3 seconds
3. Go the distance ~300+ miles
.... bonus :)
The bold and futuristic design!!

Congratulations! Is that limestone? If so, would you mind taking some more pictures in daylight. I’m trying to determine what ours will look like. Enjoy the beautiful vehicle!

Nice name. Mine will be called "Tarkus" after 1972 Album by Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Cover art reminds me of the R1S abilities... :cool:

I'm configured in Limestone also and appreciate the photos that show what it looks like. Seems like more "Lime" (green) than "stone" (grey), which is quite different from the Rivian configuration photos. I don't dislike it and it's still my choice, it's just not what I expected.

It's more 'Gray' than 'Green'.
It changes color in the bright sunshine or looks more green :)
