While making an appearance at Amazon’s re:MARS tech conference last week, Rivian showed attendees that their vehicles will be integrated with Alexa.


The conference tweeted a video highlighting the event which includes Christian Hubbell from Rivian saying "Alexa, open the hood," into a remote control. Then in the background you can see the R1T's front hood opening as commanded.

This is very exciting because we get to see a bit more how Amazon will be involved with Rivian aside from just being an investor.

As cars become more and more integrated with software my biggest concern is what they'll do to ensure that they can't be hacked. It freaks me out sometimes when you hear about people breaking into cars with remote signals.

Having fail safes in place will be necessary and something I haven't seen automakers talk enough of.

I can't agree more, it's great that there's so much technology being put into vehicles but companies need to also show consumers that it's safe from any outside interference or hacking.

This was from a Rivian event in Seattle.
Interesting. Must be some impromptu pre-event activity as the actual Seattle private eventS don't happen until latter today, Friday, Sep 27 (4-6pm PT) and tonight (7-9pm PT).

Update: Ahh, just read in another forum this was from the "Amazon’s product demo event" which of course Amazon HQ is in Seattle.

Events and other opportunities to see the R1S and R1T should increase as autoshow season is approaching.
I can't wait for them to expand their events, I also hope they start to show more stuff about their features, like the Alexa commands.

Rivian's website has some details about how Alexa will work on the R1T and R1S.


What can Alexa voice commands do in Rivian vehicles?
Alexa is integrated from the ground up in your vehicle so you can control nearly anything managed by the driver display and touchscreen with your voice — even some physical controls. Simply say 'Alexa, turn down the air', 'roll down the windows', 'open the front trunk' or anything else that comes to mind.

What data does Amazon Alexa record?
Visit Amazon's website to learn more about how Alexa uses information. Alexa is not active until it detects the wake word, "Alexa." Learn more about how we've integrated Alexa into the R1T and the R1S.
