When will Rivian offer the updated backup lamp lenses for R1S?
In March 2023, Rivian determined that backup lamps on R1S do not meet regulatory visibility requirements. When the vehicle is in reverse, the backup lamps illuminate. However, the optical center of the backup lamp may not be visible to pedestrians from certain required horizontal and vertical planes.
Though this is a noncompliance issue, the vehicle will alert pedestrians in other ways, including making reverse operating sounds. Additionally, sensors and backup cameras will detect objects near the rear, providing visibility to the rear and triggering visual and audible alerts to the driver. Rivian will replace the backup lamps on all affected R1S, free of charge.
Are the updated backup lamps available?
Yes! Please call 1-855-748-4265 to schedule the recall service repair with your nearest Rivian Service Center immediately.
How long will installation of the updated lenses take?
The replacement should take less than an hour to complete.
