Does the fact that the 400+ miles battery pack is not available on the configurator mean it is not an option? It is already on the R1T. While I understand that the LE of the R1T are coming first, it would seem like a simple change to add onto R1S configurator if that was the plan.

Rivian has specifically stated that you won’t be able to configure a max pack R1S until next year.

It should become available either right before or shortly after the 2022 release of the R1S. But, what I have been told from Rivian, it will change where you are in line if you already have a order submitted.

The web site states this, so if you did not specify an LE, I do not see why it would change your place in line:

The R1S can be configured with the 300+ mile Large pack, available for delivery beginning in August 2021 if configured as a Launch Edition. All other configurations of the Large pack will be available for delivery beginning in January 2022.

We’ll announce the timing for a longer range R1S and a 250+ mile pack for both the R1T and the R1S after we launch.


As usual though, it is clear as mud.

I meant as to why is it available for the R1T configurator but not R1S configurator. They are only a month off in terms of production schedule.

It seems they are having issues getting it to fit in the 7 seat configuration.

There is speculation that it will have a larger pack but may not be a 400+ range.

They are expecting to have more details early next year for the R1S larger pack and not available until later in the year.

What the latest on charging station for these vehicles.
You'll be able to use any J1772 charger out there...as far as tesla chargers go, a teslatap or other option will make it so that you can use tesla chargers, as well (not the superchargers, though). Rivian will be creating their own superchargers.
