Experience the Exciting Technology and Capabilities of Rivian Vehicles at the Portland First Mile Event
Rivian debuts R1T with First Mile test-drive event in Normal

Rivian recently held a First Mile event in Portland, Oregon. The event was an opportunity to experience the acceleration, capabilities and interior features of one of their vehicles. It offered customers the chance to have a 30 minute drive guided by a Field Specialist through their area.

The event was invite only and could be found on the customer's account page with a calendar icon for "Events". Those who were invited received an email confirmation and had the option to bring two others along. Unfortunately, those living outside of Portland did not receive an invitation or see the calendar icon on their accounts.

Those lucky enough to attend the event shared that they had a great time experiencing the vehicle’s acceleration, capabilities and interior features — including materials and in-vehicle navigation. They also learned that Rivian is building a service center in the NW Yeon area and that there are many orders from Oregon, particularly Bend.

For those unable to attend this particular event, it may be possible to arrange a test drive at another location or even in your own home if you contact Customer Service. However, some customers feel that it would be more efficient to hold events where people can drive at closed tracks over several days rather than driving to individual homes for one-off demos.

Rivian has made great strides in making electric vehicles accessible and enjoyable for all types of drivers. With its commitment to providing quality customer service, innovative technology, and environmental sustainability, Rivian is leading the way towards a greener future.

The First Mile event in Portland was a great success and it is likely that Rivian will continue to host similar events in the future. It’s important for customers to stay informed about upcoming events by checking their account page or subscribing to newsletters from Rivian.

In addition, customers can also join online forums where they can ask questions and share experiences with other drivers who have already taken part in these types of events. This way, everyone has access to the same information so they know what kind of experience they should expect when attending an event like this one.

Rivian's commitment towards providing quality customer service and innovative technology makes them stand out among electric vehicle manufacturers today. Their recent First Mile event in Portland was a great example of how much effort goes into making sure every customer gets the best possible experience when driving one of their vehicles — no matter where you live!
