Curbside Review: Rivian R1T Electric Pickup Truck | Curbside Classic

Rivian Fans, rejoice! On June 1st, one lucky fan picked up his Launch Green R1T from Atlanta. After testing negative for COVID-19, the fan and his family made the two hour drive to Atlanta for a 12:30 appointment. When they arrived at Top Golf driving range, their delivery guy Chad was already there with the R1T. The fan was ecstatic to see it in person and couldn't contain his excitement as he waved madly when Chad pulled up.

The fan had pre-ordered back in November 2019 with an estimated delivery date of 2nd half 2023. But after seeing the email that if you changed your configuration to what was in production you could get delivery sooner, the fan jumped on the opportunity and changed his battery, interior color, and exterior color. This cost him an additional $10k but luckily he got assigned a Rivian guide who reserved him a Launch Green R1T with Adventure Pack and 20" off-road wheels.

Since receiving the car, the fan has been enjoying its nice smooth ride and comfortable seats. He does not like however that there are no service centers or fast chargers near Tennessee which will require more planning and time for trips. The good news is that there is a new Atlanta service center opening this week located at 2333 Defoe Hills Rd NW, Atlanta GA 30318. His delivery guy said they were scheduled to open this month so hopefully everyone else can take advantage of this soon too!

If you're looking for a reliable electric vehicle with great features, then look no further than the Rivian R1T. From its smooth ride to its flexible design, this truck is sure to make any driver happy. Plus, with the new service center opening up in Atlanta, fans won't have to worry about long drives just to get service done. So don't wait any longer - reserve your own Rivian R1T today!
