The world is eagerly awaiting news of developments for the Rivian R1T customer deliveries and production increases. The only thing we officially know is the 1,000 target sales (1,200 target production) by the end of 2021.
Here we can see a short video, shared by Volty – EV channels, which presents three Rivian R1Ts on a carrier on its way to Los Angeles.
“As we were driving on 101 Freeway, we saw a vehicle delivery truck loaded with 3 Rivian R1Ts on its way to delivery in Los Angeles.”
We assume that customer deliveries are spreading a cross the country, and that’s just another sign of it.
It is expected that this month Rivian will deliver a three-digit number of R1Ts – perhaps a few hundred (after 156 in October) and a few hundred more in December for a total of the planned 1,000.
We can also assume that most of the vehicles is still delivered to Rivian’s employees, who are often also shareholders in the company, and they appear to be rather silent, without many reports. That’s how it was from the start before the IPO, and that’s still the way it is.
Hopefully we will soon see full reviews and all sorts of tests of the Rivian R1T, including off-roading like the one we saw at the Diablo Drop Off in California.
