I really hope that Rivian's infotainment system is responsive and isn't laggy. Do we know if they designed it themselves? Or are they sourcing it from someone else?
It doesn't look like anything I've seen so far.
Chances are it will feel very familiar to infotainment system's we're already used to and that's a good thing IMO.

Not having third row seating when buying a 180w battery is "Crazy". I would plan to make long road trip to visit family with my family of 5 plus wife and me and make sure that where family is they have and outlet for me to use to charge. Not having the Third seat because you want the bigger battery is "HORRIBLE" design approach and makes me think that this vehicle was badly thought out. It was probably competing against Highlander and Honda Pilot. I have owned both and especially in the Pilot used the seven row seating for long trips with the 5th person sitting in the back so to take advantage of a 4 captain seat set up while the 5th person had the one 40% section for sitting and the 60% section down for storage of suitcase and stuff. Definitely canceling my order for the R1S after i found this odd approach to the bigger battery pack ... it must just sit on top of it in the back of the skateboard ... definitely mediocre design approach. i would say that most of the ones ordering with the seven seats had the idea of a 180W battery for long road trips with 5 or more people ... and set up the way i explained it. Wow major let down. That leaves me with the minivan for those trips but now would think about the R1T because the usefulness of R1S just lost its appeal ... wow
Good point.

Rivian could have made that decision for any number of reasons. I believe its due to fitment issues and the 3rd row being hard to accommodate.

Its also possible that the majority 3rd row vehicle buyers don't exceed 310 miles of range (available on the 135 kWh battery pack) or at least won't see it as a deal breaker. What do you think? Rivian won't likely give us an answer but we can look into the numbers ourselves.
