Just starting a thread to keep track of rumors or official details on Rivian pricing. It looks like there's a lot of misinformation out there and very little is known exactly.

Right now the official website says the starting price is $69,000 before the Federal Tax rebate. That credit should be $7,500 for either the Rivian R1T truck or R1S SUV. Rebates can be as little as $2,500 but considering its a full EV it should get the full rebate.

That $69,000 price is the starting price for the 2300 mile range version, however, and with a version that will have over 400 miles I expect it will cost considerably more.

To give some perspective, the Tesla Model X starts at considerably more $82,000 for the 75D model. While the 100D is $97,000 and the P100D is a LOT more at $138,000.

Does anyone have info on what the other trims are or what they might cost?
All we know so far is that there will be a 135 kWh battery pack and the 180 kWh battery pack.

I'd be looking at something more than the basic, but not sure if I want to go full-tilt.

Either way, it looks like an R1S will be a bargain compared to a Tesla... and look a LOT better than the Model X!

I like the pricing but think its important to note that even with the differences in pricing between these Rivians and Tesla's, they will be offering completely different experiences. On one end you have sporty electric vehicles and the other as off-roading adventure vehicles that will take you anywhere.

Don't even get me started on the gull wing doors, a sad gimmick to include on a vehicle least deserving of it in the history of the automobile. Fisker did a better job with design but sucked at execution. Porsche, Mercedes and BMW are getting ready to step all over Tesla.

first post here and this thread addresses one of my concerns that the pricing to power ratio on tesla's were that great to begin with. this also creates some great opportunity for Rivian to offer say a low 200kWh battery and and still be well under the Model X's cost.

So I saw a meme on instagram comparing Tesla's design to cockroaches...

E For Electric covered the subscription service model that Rivian is considering.
Unfortunately Alex did not reveal any details because simply there are none at this point. RJ mentioned the subscription model over a year ago in August during a Bloomberg interview and we basically know no more now than when he mentioned it last year.
go to 3:40 time mark.

Hoping Rivian will shift from talking at the 10,000 foot level and start providing some details ... and not just with the subscription model but in many other aspects, like servicing, warranties, pricing, what features will be standard vs. optional, exterior colors, purchase process, etc. *and* document it on their website. (Not that I'm getting at all a little impatient ;))

I really hope Rivian starts to give us some information soon. This is how I'm starting to feel :ROFLMAO:.

I always thought Rivian would be best off launching a subscription program after they have 2 or more vehicles to offer. Doing it right away with the R1T and R1S might not be a good idea.
