The first R1S SUVs will be our Launch Edition — marked with special interior badging and offered in an exclusive Launch Green color option. Select this configuration and you'll be among the first in line for an Electric Adventure Vehicle. Launch Edition comes equipped with our Adventure Package, which includes our Off-Road Upgrade for maximum capability and the seven seat interior. Inside, perforated vegan leather seats are heated and ventilated and detailed with patterned stitching. Natural-grained ash wood throughout gives the cabin a warm feel, with our Rivian Elevation 360° audio system providing rich sound.

this is like the whole blue/gold versus white/gold dress thing. I agree that the color in the photo looks like bronze/brown and the color in the rendering looks like an olive green-ish. Since there isn't a brown/bronze as part of the selectable colors, should we assume this is it? would love to see more real photos over renderings, same with the interior.

I'd ask them over chat but it's an hour wait today. Would be great if they committed to posting real world photos of each color. Doesn't even have to be a whole vehicle, just a panel/sample. The renderings aren't that helpful, and you'd think with how long they waited on the configurator that some actual photos could be part of it. As it is, I configured Forest Green but may switch to Launch if it's a true olive/khaki (not what's in the factory pics).

Chat today was only about a 2 minute wait, so I was able to get through quickly. Not much additional info to share. Customer service said many requests for additional photos with colors. The rep did not believe the factory video I referenced that has the brownish vehicle is launch green. Hopefully more photos will surface soon.

No, it is not required. Guess the kids do not remember the drab olive green of WWII. Yuck.
Actually the WWII reference nod is what makes the olive green so cool. I hope they have some production vehicle photos out in the sunlight before we have to commit. I have seen some sunlight vid and photos of their prototype forest green and they are gorgeous, so that’s what I’ve ordered for now.

Rivian did say they are planning to let people see all the colors in person in a few months from now.
Hopefully they show us something from now till then.

This Launch Green R1T that Rivian had on site at the recent launch event with some early reservation holders looks great! It has to be the best photo I have seen of this color so far and probably closest to what it's like in person.

"Amazing first look at Rivian “Launch Green” exclusive color. Image courtesy of Kenda @rivianmom who was one first future owners to go for a test drive. As a launch edition preorder customer from January of 2019 we can’t thank her enough for the exclusive look at launch green."
