I wasn't sure at the first look but it grew on me pretty fast.
Maybe it was the Brit giving the pitch that did it?

Thank you for posting this. I am old, a petrolhead and a designer. I think the styling designer is aware of the rare 1965 american car the Avanti. Rivian is the ideal base for a T25-like camper no doubt.

Really like that - Plus one of those chassis with a T25/forward control style camper body on it would be superb! :D

Wish my DOKA locker boxes opened out as step/seats like those,
other than that I'm not tempted by the technology.
Maybe when its 30 to 40 years old and still going strong!

Exactly what I thought, the doka lockers are a stupid design. Especially if the cavity is full and you try and close the door.

Interesting vehicle. Certainly a market for something that size in the van market and by default the camper market. Prices not bad either.

Its not just the battery pack. The motor/drivetrain and most importantly, the control systems!
