Not nearly as many as I thought it would be, especially with all the press over the past couple of months. But, on the plus side, I guess that means a shorter wait for all of us.
While I think it will be unlikely to actually accomplish, Rivian has stated that they plan to get through all of their pre-orders by the end next year.
48,000 is a lot of cars to mass produce for a new company that's certain to experience some bumps along the way. But, I was think the number was in the 90,000 range, which would have easily meant 2 years for recent reservations.
"Rivian had about 48,390 preorders for its R1T pickup trucks and R1S SUVs in the United States and Canada as of last month."
