Rivian's R1T Launch Edition: Get Your Own and Enjoy 8 Years of Roadside Assistance!
2022 Rivian R1T first drive review: Electric pickup tackles the trail - CNET

Rivian is a company that has been making waves in the automotive industry with its revolutionary electric truck, the R1T. The Launch Edition of this vehicle was initially offered for $85k and then reduced to $73k. It can be customized with exterior and interior colors, but this will have minimal impact on delivery time. Those who are interested in buying an early R1T reservation from April/May 2022 can contact John directly.

However, there is speculation amongst those waiting for their R1Ts regarding Rivian’s policy against reselling pre-orders. Some people are trying to sell their reservations or spots in line before they actually take delivery, and others are willing to pay way over MSRP for a “used” vehicle. While Rivian could potentially do something harsh to those still awaiting delivery if these rules are broken, it likely won’t affect anyone who hasn’t already purchased a Pre-Order.

The only thing Rivian might do is not sell a vehicle to someone who “purchased” a Pre-Order without written agreement that guarantees money back if the policy is enforced. No one knows yet whether it is possible to take delivery of a Pre-Order, as some customers may be able to get away with breaking the rules while others may not.

It remains unclear what will happen if someone tries to purchase a Pre-Order, but it is important to remember that Rivian has made it clear that reselling Pre-Orders is strictly prohibited. If you want to buy an R1T, your best bet is to wait until the official release date when you can order your own custom model directly from Rivian.

In the meantime, those who have already purchased a Pre-Order can rest assured that they will be able to take delivery of their R1T when it is released. Rivian has made sure to protect its customers from any potential issues by making sure all orders are tracked and monitored.

The company also offers an extended warranty for up to 8 years or 150k miles on the vehicle, so you won’t have to worry about costly repairs down the line. Additionally, Rivian provides 24/7 roadside assistance in case of emergency situations while driving your R1T.

Overall, if you want an early reservation for April/May 2022 delivery of your own custom R1T Launch Edition truck then contact John directly as soon as possible! Just remember that reselling pre-orders is strictly prohibited and could result in serious consequences if caught breaking this rule.

Is the first offer the canceled price increase?

No, you won't be able to take advantage of the canceled price increase. You will have to sell it after you buy it.

Is there an April/May 2022 R1T Launch Edition up for sale?

Yes, there is an April/May 2022 R1T Launch Edition up for sale. Exterior and interior colors can be changed with minimal impact on timing. Please contact the seller directly if interested.

What is the real timetable for delivery?

The seller is awaiting a call from their guide to see what the real timetable is. If it’s able to happen in the next month or two, they will probably keep it. If not then they are likely to let it go.

Considering Rivian's stated rules against selling "Pre-Orders", has anyone who purchased a Pre-Order been able to actually take delivery?

Only thing Rivian might do, likely to do based on stated policy, is not sell a vehicle to someone who "purchased" a Pre-Order. If they also cancelled the original order, the buyer of the Pre-Order is out the cash unless he has a written agreement that says he gets his money back if Rivian enforces the policy. Rivian could also contact the actual Pre-Order customer and ask if they still want to buy the truck but having broke the rules about turnaround reselling, maybe not. There is no evidence that anyone who purchased a Pre-Order has taken delivery yet.

Are there “camps” on these forums?

Not sure there are "camps". There is Rivian's stated and restated policy. By "camps" we mean multiple persons on this forum falling into several categories. It seems that some people are violating distinct contractual agreements between the buying public and Rivian by reselling their pre-orders. If we are not careful, Rivian could do something harsh to us (who are still awaiting delivery) in the near future.

What is the best way to protect myself from a potential price increase?

The best way to protect yourself from a potential price increase is to purchase the vehicle as soon as possible. If you are able to buy it before the price increase, you will be able to save money. Additionally, you should also consider purchasing an extended warranty or service plan for your vehicle in order to ensure that you are covered in case of any unexpected repairs or maintenance.
