Has anyone come across interior dimensions for the R1S that mention how much cargo space will be available? I know both the second and 3rd row seats fold flat, so that should provide quite a large boot. Alike the R1T it will also get a frunk with 11.6 cubic feet of storage but from the photos, it does not look like it will have the benefit of the additional gear tunnel.

It was made to seat 7 and has two full size middle row seats. In the automotive world, that almost as best as you get. Haven't found actual numbers but for the average 7 seater SUV buying consumer, there's will be little to no compromise. Of those a small percent use the 3rd row.

Since the middle and third row can be folded, I don't think losing the gear tunnel is much of a sacrifice. When choosing between the R1S and R1T its a matter of whether you need cargo or passenger space.

You also have better roof real estate for roof top options which provide a big incentive for going R1S

Anyone with dimensions from the folded-down seats to the roof of cargo?
Haven't seen R1T dimensions broken down like that but these other dimension specs will help

"Dimension-wise, the R1T is most directly comparable to the new Ford Ranger or the newest Toyota Tacoma, though there are differences. Rivian’s electric pickup has a slightly longer wheelbase (135.8 inches) than the Ranger (127 inches) or the Tacoma (127.4 inches). At 226 inches overall, it is longer than the Ranger (210.8 inches) and the Tacoma (212.3 inches). Rivian’s truck is a smidge taller than both, too, measuring 71.5 inches to the Ranger’s 70.7-inch height or the Tacoma’s 70.6-inch stance.

The R1T is not quite as wide as the Ranger, with Rivian’s truck measuring 79.3 inches compared to the Ranger’s width of 85.8 inches. (The base model of the Tacoma measures 74.4 inches wide). The R1T has a payload of about 1,760 pounds, which is shy of the Ranger’s 2,080-pound capacity, but it far exceeds the Tacoma’s 1,175-pound limit."

Don't have dimensions but they actually said in an interview (not sure where it was) that there is storage space under the 2nd row of seats.
If you see the hole there, they are planning on things going thru. Sort of a shorter gear tunnel.

I've never noticed that before. That'll be great for storing stuff like tools or ice scrapers in winter.

Been chatting with Kevin at Rivian on this. He states that from the back of the front seat to the tailgate (back gate?) is 7'. The width (depending on where you measure it) is 51", and the height from the folded down seats to the ceiling is 28".
84" * 51" * 28" = 119952 cubic inches. Divide by 1728 and you get roughly 69.42 cubic feet. Seems small for this SUV as it is close to the same size (length and width) as the Ford Expedition which has 104 cubic feet of storage behind the front seats with the 2nd and 3rd row folded down. The Rivian is 9 inches shorter than the Expedition but that doesn't account for the 35 cubic foot difference.
Will probably have to wait for official numbers to be announced for this.

28" seems way too short for the distance from the folded seat to the ceiling, you couldn't even sit up with that little head room. Seems like it must be at least 40", if not more.

What's what I said to Kevin, sounded way too little from seat (folded down) to ceiling. He said we'd have to wait until production when they might have actual measurements.

Any info on whether rear seats can be REMOVED for empty nesting seniors to carry their bicycles?
We’d recycle them in the home !

I don't think Rivian will do it but they probably can be removed. Whether or not it's easy is a completely different story.

Is Kevin one of their PR/communications people?

Looking on the new Rivian website it says 108 total cubic feet of space. That's behind the 3rd row and in the frunk.

Does anyone know how those numbers divide up?

11.6 frunk. Dimensions 25.5"length, 54.7" width, 22.7" depth i compute more than 11.7' as 22.7" is almost 2ft. So its 9.7 ' plus almost twice that 1ft so im guessing over 17sqft not 11.7
