@bayoubob Did that too--- The Rivian (RS1) might be too big a vehicle for me at this point in my life but for a $100 it seemed like a good option to possibly preserve the 7500 tax credit.  I have yet to see an RS1 in person but I see RT1 fairly often in southern CA.  On Friday I actually saw a RT1 Rivian service vehicle on the road--very sweet looking.   Not sure if you know but the RS1 lacks (or at least appears to lack) the pass through  --very disappointing as I think the pass through was super cool---  I guess if I can live without a frunk in the Ocean, I can deal with the lack of a pass through in the RS!

I saw the R1S in person a few weeks ago.  If you are in the L.A. area, they had them on display at their Venice Hub (I don't know if they are still there).  The R1S is an absolutely huge vehicle.  The R1S does not have a passthrough as it would cut into the passenger compartment, however, storage space is not an issue.  There is storage space under the back large enough for a spare tire and the frunk can probably fit to small people (the frunk has two different levels including a bottom plastic lined level with a drain that could be used as a cooler.

I keep getting tempted by the R1S but it is too large for me (and has terrible efficiency).  The biggest selling point is the ventilated seats!  Although I have an order in for the One, I did convert $100 to make my order into a "binding" order (I also figure I will not be getting the car for close to a year after I get the One).
