    Tesla Fans!

    There are a lot of really good perspectives on this list. I will state simply. Elon and Tesla fundamentally changed automotive history. The automotive experience for the user is fundamentally different and is NOW approachable in a way never before possible. That kind of disruption creates...

    This was a detailed technical review. Arguably the best review we have seen without condescension or too much hyperbole. Bravo David Tracy and Jalopnik, I agree click the link to give them the traffic. UPDATE: I reached out to David and he let me know one of the reasons his article took so...

    Milwaukee reservation holder here!

    I was at the showroom last week, its pretty empty save for a big row of porta potties. I wonder what the schedule is on an actual open date.

    TFL drives the new GMC Hummer EV

    I watched both of their Rivian videos, first seriously moaning about not getting invited to the press event in Breckinridge, and focusing on the fact that they didnt get a response at all. As if that makes it ok to be shamelessly butt hurt about it. The second video was them acknowledging they...

    How do you want battery State of Charge displayed?

    I picked one because I think your point is which would you choose as a default. It should be configurable for all of the above. The info is in the system.

    Chicago Rivian Sales Location Under Construction

    Stopped by the Fulton Market Rivian showroom today. Definitely construction happening but not imminently looking to open. I did see rows of porta potties inside on the first floor so if the acceleration forces an evacuation in your R1T you have options, if you can make it ;) Thanks to...

    Dear Rivian...R1T WISHLIST BELOW

    There are like 50 threads on this topic and I DONT want this one to turn into one of those. Carplay/Android Auto are not perfect but what they give you is the ability to use apps from your phone natively in your display. For me, Waze marks hidden and visible police officers and their speedtraps...

    Rivian R1T up against 5 other semifinalists for North American Truck of the Year

    Gotta be a dead heat between the Hummer and R1T. I have no idea how that ends up, automotive journalists have a symbiotic relationship with the manufacturers and GM has influence. The Hummer has interesting features, its NOT for me in almost any way but I get why some people like it.

    TFL snubbed by Rivian: video

    Read @cohall article about his run in with RJ. He has been a reasoned voice on this Forum for a long time. Was RJ setup for success? Yes, it was a press event and his head was in the game. Did he need to go to the lengths Cohall describes? Hell no. Companies are filled with people, and we can...

    Badge appreciation thread

    Does anyone else NOT like the compass logo? I like almost all the other badging and fonts, I cant put my finger on why, the compass just looks so generic and boring to me... Like something the Bobs would come up with. I would delete it from the entire car if I could, especially the steering...

    New Video - Motortrend - R1T Suspension Explainer

    This suspension is one of the key value props for me. Its critical in that mission to be excellent on road and off. I truly mean excellent, with this power poor on-road handling could be catastrophic. Hey guide, time to give me a jingle...
