Rivian first confirmed the tank turn feature for the R1T and R1S in December 2019, but the EV maker has postponed its introduction several times since then.
In September 2021, for example, the EV startup said it was delaying the turn-on-a-dime feature, announcing reservation holders that Tank Turn would not be available on the R1T at the start of deliveries. 
Now, however, Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe has announced that the feature might not be offered at all. In an Instagram Q&A session on May 26 that was later uploaded on Rivian's YouTube channel, he explained why Tank Turn will likely never make it into a Rivian production truck: because the feature has the potential to be really destructive to the environment.
