Wheel Tire Car Vehicle Automotive tail & brake light

One of the first spottings of an R1T just happened in Vancouver, B.C. on set of a Rivian commercial shoot

"We were lucky to secure footage of a pre production RIvian RT1 electric truck filiming for a commercial in Ucluelet B.C. Due to hit the market next year, the Rivian truck is one of the most exciting vehicles in history, being the first long range ev truck, as well as boasting super car like performance with impressive offroading capabilities. Thanks to Matt from Green World Building out of Ucluelet B.C. for giving us the heads up on this bad boy!"

Looks like an original RJ Blue with a wrap based on the side mirrors, lowered suspension and a broken/missing charge port door. It also appears the DC portion of the CCS plug has a cover over it. I think the Taycan has something similar.
I hope the port door is automatic like the Taycan.
Anyone know if it is?

I may be wrong, but to me it looks like this one is a bit dinged up ... some scrapes and damage to the plastic fender right behind the wheel (?) - unless that’s just water marks - and watching the video, there appears to be some minor dents in the door(?). Perhaps that front panel just fell off if it hit something(?)

I'm thinking those are battle scars from rigorous off-road testing.

A not so cool possibility is it was scraped on some parking garage pillar or something.

Anyone know what it might cost to replace that black fender trim?

There is a lot of discussion going on about the video posted in #40.
The sound being made when the guy gets close to it is the R1T. When the R1T starts moving, the pitch of the sound changes.
If you listen carefully, right before it comes into view, you can hear the Van's engine noise separately.
Noticing it now.
Interesting how it creates a sound you'd expect from an ICE car. Nearly every other EV is dead quiet at a stand still. Then begins to sound like a spaceship as they get off the line. Do you like it? Because I'm not sure if I do.

A R1T was seen on a highway next to a Toyota Tundra and Ford F-150. Gives a nice size comparison

Some info to go with this visual: Rivian R1T height is 72.0 in (inches)/1829 mm (millimeters). That's a few inches shorter than the current F-150 at 75.2–76.9 in (1,910–1,953 mm). But width is 15-25mm less than the F-150.
