    I watched the video about finding your pre-order number, mine is “https://rivian.com/account/vehicle/order/279047126”

    Doesn’t really make sense to me, can’t be 2 million pre-orders.. lol

      Can I assume you received your # from your guide?

        No, by looking in the hyperlink in the order on Rivian.com see the instructions in the post above.

          With only just under 49k orders, not sure how to decipher a nine digit number then.

      There was a huge gap in numbers between Dec. 2019 and Jan. 2020.

      The lowest number we could find in the forums was over 1000.

      Rivian said their total preorders as of Sept. 2021 was roughly 48k

      I also put an order in Feb, 2020.

      Based on the information above and a bunch of work by folks in the forums, our actual place in line is closer to 15,000.

      Also at some point after forum users did that sleuthing, the order number system changed and became essentially meaningless for determining place in line.

    Just as a wild guess I would say your pre-order number tells more about where in the country you live than anything. Rivian isn’t going to build somebody a vehicle until they can service it. Order holders close to the service centers will get built first regardless of when the order was placed. They aren’t going to fly a service tech to a warranty call 400 miles from a service center. At least that is what I’m being told by employees (I live about 35 minutes from the plant). And in the last 30 days they have moved “substantial resources” from R1T production to Amazon van production which is slowing R1T output. Not surprising and entirely justifiable if you read the SEC filing about the number of vans that have to be produced by when to keep that contract. Not to mention Amazon owns almost 25% of Rivian (as disclosed in the filing).

      Hmmm I had heard all the internet rumors about “prioritizing” Amazon builds over the R1 line but not sure what to make of it. Interesting if you’re confirming this from the locals. FWIW, I agree that Amazon’s vans will have to take precedence if push comes to shove.

      @Golfer04, are you saying that none of the reservation numbers make a difference and are based on location or just the ones AFTER the switch to a different numbering system?

        From my Rivian source (and as Craig says his guide told him same thing)….. when you put your order in doesn’t matter in determining build date. Originally it was going to, however they are not going to deliver a vehicle to anybody without a way to service it. I referred to “service center” in my post, but it could be a guy in a van too. The Rivian infrastructure to service the entire country is not “built out” yet. If the plant was not in Normal, Illinois they wouldn’t have a service tech there yet, and Shultzy and I would be way down the delivery list despite having ordered comparatively early. Jimmy mentioned it on one of the videos, but I forgot the percentage of orders that are from California, Oregon & Washington. That is where the “hubs”, service centers, etc are being built first because that is where the orders are from AND that is where the first deliveries are going to go. Most deliveries, most subscription income, easiest service calls, etc. They don’t want unhappy customers AND they don’t want to send somebody 400 miles to fix a door handle warranty problem (as an example). And I say that knowing an unhappy customer can also be an order holder who is delayed. But the worse option is having somebody PAY $75,000 and then be unhappy compared to somebody gets their $1,000 back and likely still buys next year or year after anyway assuming vehicle is as nice as we all think.

        The other day I asked my contact “what if somebody in central Nebraska ordered a Launch Edition R1T? Are you going to deliver it?” He said “good question”. Obviously he isn’t sure even remote LE orders will be delivered. Probably a month ago I emailed Rivian and asked if there was a waiting list for LE R1T orders in case somebody bailed (thinking death, divorce, financial calamity they are not going to have 100% conversion on those orders). Also thinking MAYBE they tell some LE order holders they are looking at December 2022 and they cancel. Then instead of giving up the LE order I would just take it however it was configured. Evidently there is no such waiting list. But it was worth a shot😅

        After learning more about this I really calmed down on getting my R1T. I want Rivian to succeed AND I want my R1T. But getting my R1T and Rivian failing means a worse situation for me than not getting my R1T as soon as I want. They have to manage their capital, contractual obligations, Amazon, cash flow, etc to the best company results. Then everybody wins.

        Sorry for the long winded rant, but if you sit back and think about it…….. What they are doing makes A LOT more sense than scattering vehicle deliveries randomly across the country (continent really) and having warranty issues they can’t cost effectively address. Then the ongoing subscription revenue they estimate in the SEC filing isn’t met, etc & stock price collapses.

          I figured this as much, luckily there are a lot of unofficial service centers and mobile repair folks getting setup in major areas. I know my area has expanded to a team of like 5+ people in the past 4 months so they are gearing up.

          Thanks for taking the time to flesh this out @Golfer04 ! Def can’t deliver without service. Understandable. But if my neighbor who just ordered 3 weeks ago gets his before me my feelings are going to be hurt. 😆

    I’m pretty excited but more then happy to wait as I have complete faith in the way RJ and his leadership team have executed to date. I just put in another preorder on an RIT (didn’t even bother looking at my order number on that one!)

    A guide told me the same thing, that order # is now meaningless because they aren’t completing reservations by order #. For what it’s worth my order R1T order # is 50278 and my R1S order # is 50279.

        You need to log into your Rivian account and go to your vehicle configuration. Once you are there, look at the webpage address in your browser and the number in the address is though to be your order number.

        This is what my address looks like

        https//rivian.com/account/vehicle/order/5585/config

        So I think my order number is 5585

          Not sure that’s it. I doubt I’m 27.5-millionth?
