  1. Rivian R1T Get Tinted Tail Lights, Front Light Charging Status Bar + Window Tint 😈

    I'm curious what the front light bar looks like when on. When off, it just looks like misplaced black plastic trim instead of a lightbar. If it were either deeper piano black like the lower black trim piece or body color, it would look less offputting. Ironically, I think it would look better on...
  2. Doug Demuro Review (eventual placeholder) - predictions (as of 9/2/21)

    I wonder if the software updates would be enough to increase Features by 1 to bump its total up to 74 - tying the pair of McLarens? Also interesting - it ties with the Model S Plaid in both Weekend and Daily exactly, being one of the very few "70 pointer" vehicles to have a Daily score above...
  3. Doug Demuro Review (eventual placeholder) - predictions (as of 9/2/21)

    *Mostly* fleet lease - but some were sold outright. Same with the Chevy S10 EV and Toyota RAV4 EV. While the EV1 was the most famous of turn-of-the-century EVs, it certainly wasn't the only one. I almost bought a used Ranger EV a couple years ago locally. It had even been converted to use a...
  4. Why the 6-month delay from Oct ‘21 to Mar ‘22?

    I've already had one EV company I invested in the IPO that had a class action lawsuit relating to "lack of honesty immediately prior to IPO regarding production readiness" - ironically the stock is now *WELL* above both IPO and what it was at when the class action was filed. I'm happy with that...
  5. Trailer Brake Controller -- demonstration how it's activated [video]

    I would imagine that in tow mode, that button *ONLY* does trailer brakes, that it is no longer configurable. Although being a strict on/off is slightly annoying, I like having an analog trailer brake controller. That said, "in an emergency" the trailer brake controller *SHOULD* also be coupled...
  6. What are you sacrificing to stay below the $80,000 tax break threshold?

    Agreed. I live in a high-living-expense city. The income threshold is *PLENTY* high for around here. My wife and I will *JUST* exceed that cap this year, and will drop back below it next year. Even if they use our 2021 income, we'll still qualify for some of the credit, which we don't need. And...
  7. What are you sacrificing to stay below the $80,000 tax break threshold?

    Gah! Whey the heck doesn't congress.gov link the *PASSED* version under the "text" tab? Every other piece of legislation I've looked at had it that way! Well, that makes me feel better! I can add Forest Edge and the Offroad upgrade back on!
  8. What are you sacrificing to stay below the $80,000 tax break threshold?

    Yep, what passed the house is $69k SUV, $74k trucks. Taking a base Launch Edition R1T and adding Forest Edge interior bumps it over that limit. :mad: I'm *REALLY* hoping they determine that color choices don't count toward the MSRP. Because I *REALLY* want Launch Green with Forest Edge interior...
  9. Video: Rivian R1T vs. Land Cruiser 100 -- UP THE DIABLO DROP-OFF

    EVs should also be *FAR* more efficient overloading, since speeds will be low, where ICE are *least* efficient. As evidenced by the Trans America Trail drive.
  10. Removable Roof For Rivian R1t Coming Next Year!!!

    My wife *LOVES* opening roofs. But not full on convertibles, just opening roofs.
  11. Upcoming "First Mile" Mobile Test Drive Cities Announced - Chicago, Dallas, Denver, LA, Seattle, San Francisco

    Damn. Hopefully Seattle doesn't fill up and I can get in there. Otherwise I'll have to wait for Portland.
  12. Has anyone on this forum received a confirmed delivery date?

    I will say, when I took delivery of my Arcimoto FUV (VIN #11) I was too busy enjoying it to remember to post to the Arcimoto forum. :-D And yes, I was the first "production vehicle" owner to post about it - number 11 off the assembly line, delivered about a month after "first customer delivery."...
  13. At home 25kW DC charging

    It's the Gen 1 that can do 80A, the Gen 2 dropped to 48A. Tesla also hasn't sold a vehicle capable of 80A charging over AC in many years. I would assume the Cybertruck will bring back 80A.
  14. At home 25kW DC charging

    Just checked, that is indeed what it is set to. My memory just rounded it. :-D
  15. Thinking out loud...PNW Style...

    First "longer than in town" trip in our BMW i3 was a day trip to the coast (Manhattan Beach), first "longer than in town" trip in our Tesla Model S was a day trip to the coast (Astoria,) so of course our first trip in the R1T will be to the beach! (Probably towing the camper to our usual Pacific...
  16. Are you an LE, Adventure, or Explore reservation holder?

    Ever since discovering the joy of wood trim, my wife now insists all our vehicles have it. We've been looking at upgrading our 2015 BMW i3 for a newer (used) 2019 model to get the bigger battery; and one of the big stumbling blocks is it appears that for 2019, very few i3s were sold with the...
  17. At home 25kW DC charging

    Not bad if you have a spot to put it between vehicles. I use two JuiceBox 40s with their load-sharing system enabled (set to share 50A on a 60A circuit) one on each side of the garage. It works fine for our i3 + Model S now, I imagine it should continue to work fine when one of those gets...
