Towing capacity. I need to pull just a little more than the R1S is rated.

And really, I have minivans, don't need/want an SUV. A truck fits my needs/wants much better. :)

Can't blame you there for wanting that extra towing capacity. Have you started planning how you want to spec your R1T?

Hi there,

I have also fairly recently preordered an R1T. How do you know how far down the preorder list you are?

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum @NCAA! we've started a pre-order tracker so feel free to add to it!


Is the R1T going to be your first EV?

I have a deposit down on the mustang mach e GT but I'm pretty sure I'm going with the R1T. Just more versatility.

The Mach-E seems like a solid SUV, but the R1T is definitely the more versatile vehicle.

Hey, just updated tracker sheet. Does anyone have info or point me in the right direction about home charging these trucks, more specifically rough-in boxs?

Welcome to the forum! You will get many different answers regarding at-home charging, but this is my current setup. I currently have (2) 220volt outlets on separate 50amp circuits installed in my garage. One is for my Tesla and the other is an anticipation of my Rivian(s). I have the Tesla HPWC which gives me between 25-30 miles per hour of charge which is plenty for our daily driving. I suspect similar results once I get the Rivian. I was told by a Rivian employee at one of the in-person events that they plan on furnishing an adapter/travel kit with each vehicle, much like Tesla does. It's a bag of adapters and charging cord so you can charge from just about any type of connection available out there (110v, 220v, J1772). After speaking to a few Tesla owners when I bought mine, I decided to just leave the adapter kit in the vehicle for road trips and permanently install the HPWC in my garage, thus eliminating the chance that I may forget to grab all the pieces before a road trip. I could have bought another travel kit from Tesla, but I had a $500 credit from a referral, so I decided to go all in!

Some people recommend at home charging stations from Chargepoint, etc that allow you to program charging times based on peak/off-peak rates, track usage, etc. Where I live, the rate never changes and tracking my charging usage is not that important to me...especially after the first year or so that I first owned an EV. Nothing much changed in my monthly utility bill, so I figured it was a waste of time to track it. Those in different parts of the country or have solar panels installed might think differently though.

Feel free to ask any more questions!
