Rivian R1S Deliveries Start in June - Placing Orders Early Will Yield Faster Delivery Times
Rivian R1S Deliveries to Start in June
Rivian has announced that the deliveries of their R1S model will start in June, with Adventure (large pack) models being delivered in June 2022 and Explore (large pack) models being delivered in the first half of 2023. This comes after customers were initially promised delivery windows ranging from April-May 2021 to September 2021.
The company had also promised an ‘Accounts’ page on their website where customers could view their order status but this feature is still not available yet. Customers have been waiting for months for updates on their orders and some are now seeing revised delivery dates as far out as 2024.
It appears that Rivian's customer service is unable to provide reliable information about when customers can expect their vehicles. Customers who had originally expected a March-April window back in December are now being told to expect delays until May or even June. Others who had expected a May/June window are now being told that the timing of further clarity on a new window is unknown.
This lack of communication and transparency has left many customers feeling frustrated and confused. Many have expressed disbelief at how a company can keep lying to them without any repercussions while others remain hopeful that they will eventually receive their vehicle despite the delays.
It remains unclear when exactly Rivian customers can expect their vehicles, however it seems likely that those who placed orders early will be receiving theirs sooner than those who ordered later. In the meantime, Rivian customers can only hope that they will soon receive more concrete information regarding their orders and delivery dates.
Rivian has been making headlines recently with their electric vehicles and the company is still working hard to meet customer expectations. Despite the delays, customers remain hopeful that they will eventually receive their vehicle as promised.
It remains to be seen how Rivian will handle these delivery delays but it is clear that communication and transparency are key in order for them to maintain a good relationship with their customers. Hopefully, Rivian can provide more clarity on when exactly customers can expect deliveries of the R1S model soon so everyone can plan accordingly.
