After Rivian increased prices a lot, I though it would be interesting to see how many are either canceling their order or are staying with Rivian. So make sure to add your vote to the poll!

If cancelling your R1T or R1S order, comment below on what vehicle you will be getting instead.

Voted no -- if I could get the larger battery pack with dual motor, I'd be ok with it. But price jumped to $87k is a bitter pill to swallow and going for a smaller range and less power (can't do larger battery pack with dual motor...) is hard and then having it pushed back to 2024 (still a price jump if go to smaller battery on dual motor) .... Doubt they keep me. I had a late 2022 delivery window...

GM needs to call the Rivian president and say thank you. I'm sure they just received a bunch of new orders for the Silverado, which is a far more "current" looking truck, with far more capability, the potential for an 11 foot bed versus Rivian's 4 1/2 foot box. Seemed pricey at first, but, now compared to Rivian's new price point, the Silverado is a far more attractive option based on more current tech than Rivian's Tesla knock-off UI. Such a disappointment. Sold my Rivian stock too. Just can't get on board with a company that pulls this kind of crap. Pricing was adjusted just 8 months ago. So this isn't a price hike of 2018 pricing, rather is a price hike of 2021 pricing, and by a whopping 20+%. PHU Rivian!

Glad I got a Silverado reservation already :ROFLMAO:

Mine did too. 87750 to be exact. UGH. I have had an order in since Oct of 19. Great way to treat someone that has been here that long

To whom it doesn’t concern,

Your new pricing is insane. You have priced a good majority of preorders right out of ownership. You have betrayed a loyal base that has blindly supported you. Most of us haven’t even seen or driven one of your vehicles and still we believed. We supported you not only through deposits, but through social media, word of mouth, and stock purchases. You have killed all good faith in your company. How can you possibly justify this.? This is a true slap in the face. We have waited patiently through delays and postponements and still stood by hopeful. How could you betray us like this?

If original preordered price is not honored, Very sadly I will be canceling because I was at my limit. I am a healthcare worker, I’m not a suit with money to burn. With a baby on the way this was going to be our family vehicle to “Adventure” with. First time electric vehicle/ and suv owners. We shared the concept of your owner with helping the environment and at the same time enjoying and exploring the nature we are all working and trying to preserve.

This is just fucking sad. I really believed Rivian was the next great American car company for the people.

This price hike is insanity! Mine went up from $74k to $91k. I can afford it, but feel betrayed by this. I understand cost increases in materials and would have been willing to pay a premium for increased costs but you can’t tell me it is costing them 22% more to build. Extremely disappointed in the company and will no longer purchase a vehicle from them.

And who know it will stop at $91k when you finally receive your vehicle.

This price increase seems unjustified. It's more than inflation. It seems more like they saw what some Ford dealers were doing with their markups and got greedy. Those of us that plopped down $1,000 with our reservations are taking a chance on this company. Rivian doesn't have a track record with the public and they are coming out the gate disrespecting the customers that are giving them a chance to prove themselves. They should at least honor the prices of reservation holders. We are the people who's deposits validated their claim the vehicles would sell before any were produced!

Do you want to know what it will be like to be a Rivian Customer? Pay attention to how we are being treated right now!

If someone has a LE confirmed delivery date, I am happy to discuss reasonable $ for their slot if you are thinking of cancelling. Or even a trade back for my June-Sep non-LE slot. I just love the LE color and cant get it any other way.
