Announcing our new "CLUBS" section where you can join or create a Rivian club or group! You can use this new feature to conveniently plan and discuss local events, gatherings or other club/group related topics.
So we encourage you to join (or start) special-interest and regional-based Rivian clubs at: https://www.rivianforums.com/forum/group-categories/clubs-groups.1/
When they removed the frunk 12v he claimed it was from “lack of usage”, as if they had any actual data on that. They can’t very well say that about the one under the dash. If it’s just a cost cutting move I wish they would simply say so… Personally I would rather have the one under the dash than the frunk.And that a-hole Tony will tell us something like "this is what makes our manufacturing process so exciting, we can update the models instantly"!!
So they can pull stuff like this whenever they want. WHne was the last time they upgraded or added something instantly?!
yeah, really don't care if people who want to install radar or laser detectors can get to power. I tend to think they should be points-inducing citations that can eventually lead to loss of a driver's license, but that's a total side conversation.
However, I do think power under the dash is very useful for wanting to plug something in and leave it in that lower storage area or to have a phone plugged in while using it for alternative navigation. I prefer 12V but even if they just put 2 USB-C ports with good power output, that's fine.
What did Sandy do? ...FWIW, the auto industry is about to purge 12V all together in favor of 48V DC and 120V AC plugs. But no, I'm not trying to justify their removal of the 12V. Not having it kinda sucks. But I'm still more frustrated with the removal of the 12V or just having no power in the frunk -- that's a major strike against the vehicle. But the R1S is still the only real EV SUV out there. I had high hopes for the EV9, but its specs are a major disappointment
Nothing CS says is officialInteresting that the removal is official (per CS) but the website has yet to update and reflect this change. On the R1T. They still list 2 12V on the vehicle, with the removal of the dash mounted 12V the only remaining is the one in the rear tunnel.
I’m guessing this was not a cost of materials issue, but a cost of production / ie time it took to install / place wiring for the 12v. I feel like they’ll just do away with it all together sometime soon.
Sir. To be honest. Don't really need your opinion about speeding. The 12v is for many purpose. If you don't have a good thing to contribute to the conversation. Should have stay out of itMaybe don’t speed and therefore not give the cops a reason to interact with you in the first place?
Whatever help Rivian can get to streamline manufacturing and reduce costs. I’m sure there will be debatable trade-offs along the way, but as long as they maintain overall forward progress, I’m all for itEasy now. Careful what you ask for. Munro is still around.
One 12v at a time
