A Rivian reservation holder admitted to having some extra time on his hands over his recent spring break. Like us, he's been curious about the reservation status of the upcoming automaker's R1T electric pickup truck and R1S three-row SUV. While there isn't a lot of hard data available, plenty of information can be gleaned from various sources.
Rivian Forums member johnking used reservation numbers from forum threads, along with some publicly reported information, to calculate details related to Rivian reservations. He says his calculations are "amateurish," but we're impressed with the results. This is especially true given the circumstances, as well as the fact that there's just not a whole lot of concrete data available.
