I took delivery of my 2022 Rivian R1T on September 16thn, 2022, and recorded the entire delivery process to document exactly how Rivian delivery works. My delivery agent, Shade Akinde did an awesome job of explaining all of the R1T’s features and settings.
Since Rivian uses a direct sales model, the company doesn’t use dealerships to order and deliver its vehicles. This video explains exactly how the delivery process will go for Rivian customers. It also explains all of the R1T’s settings and unique features including the gear tunnel, cargo cover, camp speaker, power outlets, air compressor, and more.
