Has anyone here measured their garage and compared those numbers to R1T & R1S dimensions?
x2 on Rivian positioning the charge port door on the front driver side. Every other EV I like has it like that and makes the most sense to me. Audi E-Tron, Porsche Taycan, Jaguar I-Pace and many more. Its almost an industry standard at this point. Tesla is one of the only exceptions and I don't like what they did.I had a Dodge Ram 2500 and I had to 'kiss' the front wall with the bumper and get within inches of the side wall.
The R1T will fit with a little more to spare. I am glad they switched charge port to Driver side otherwise I would SOL.
It will be interesting and I am not going to worry about it until I have the truck to better see how things fit.What will space be like for you with a charging setup installed?
The R1S is roughly the size of a Lexus RX or about 18" longer than a Land Rover Discovery. Big, but not massive. My wife bought a Hyundai Veracruz (no longer available) that literally just fit into our garage (maybe 1-1/2" clearance to the garage door). We had to park very precisely and had to pull out of the garage to open/close the rear hatch. She swapped it out for a Genesis less than a year later (and went back to an SUV about 2 years after that).Has anyone here measured their garage and compared those numbers to R1T & R1S dimensions?
Its often an issue with post WW2 homes I find. In the 80-90's they started to get gradually bigger.Wow, I’m getting a real education on garage sizes here! I’ve always felt that 20’ was sort of the “minimum” garage depth, and usually wanted mine to be 22’ or more to create extra walk around clearance on both ends. The R1T is just barely over 18’. Seems crazy to me that given all the trucks and SUV’s on the road that builders would put in anything under 20’, but apparently they do. 🤷♂️
Same as mine. I had the house built in 1996. I should have paid better attention to the garage depth.Our garage exterior footprint is 20'x20', 2x6 framing, finished (attached, so drywalled). I think the R1T might just fit tip to tail if we give up all storage along the rear wall.
That has me wondering how many R1T and R1S owners will be parking on their driveway or the street in some cases. At least there's little downside. Yeah someone might steal the power you have setup to charge your car but the loss is a few dollars at max.Moving from the north where garages are paramount, to the south where not so much, selling real estate showed me just how small garages could be. Building our house in 2000 ours is 28 x 40, embarrassing larger than my sister’s whole house. No problem fitting either the T or S after moving some stuff. Anyone know someone who would like to buy a 1986 Buick Riviera? It needs to go, cheap. Under 40k actual miles.
