On one hand I think it looks better, on the other hand I think the distinctiveness of the current design is a real benefit to the Rivian brand

Everyone knows Rivian headlights whereas that light bar is generic.

Edit: typo

I agree! Those lights are kind of iconic, regardless of whether the aesthetic is appealing to some and not to others.

Exactly. The distinction is a big plus. I do have an idea on how to have both and that’s by spreading the headlights apart to the further edges of the front. Might try a photoshop meself.

Less personality but it’s not the worst

Agreed, loses something…less iconic. Not bad, but not as good as the stadium lights look.

Light bar in addition to headlights? Totally. Light bar alone? No thanks.

Part of the "feature" of headlights is that it gives others on the road a way to gauge your vehicles speed and location. If the headlights are moving away from each other, the vehicle is moving towards you. If the headlights are closing in on each other, it's moving away from you. Even subtle changes in size/shape/orientation give you a lot of visual clues about the vehicle - most of which are lost on a "bar only" design.

There is a common problem for motorcyclists not being noticed because they don't have multiple headlights. Your subconscious often doesn't realize the vehicle is right there next to you, because there are no cues for location/speed/direction.

Where would the high beams go? In the bumper? To me, this looks too much like all the other EVs on the road (and on the horizon).

I think Rivian has done an excellent job establishing a brand identity with their stadium lights. They are immediately recognizable when you see them in person.
