    My Norcal Sonoma First Mile Event Impressions and Videos

    Not sure if it's safe, but I keep a fridge in the back of my Element. When everything is packed, the fridge is surrounded by all sorts of crap, so there not a lot of circulated air. Seems to run OK?

    My Norcal Sonoma First Mile Event Impressions and Videos

    Thanks for the info and video! I, for one, really appreciate the 12v in the frunk. It's better to run fridges w/ DC because you avoid efficiency loss. Would be good to have all the options, but if there could only be *one*, I'd probably pick 12v.

    Take delivery before a test drive?

    Yes. Frankly, I trust other people's judgement on how a car drives more than mine (or my wife's).

    Skeptical Of Rivian's Prices

    Relatedly, if there are plans to raise prices in the near future, wouldn't that have to be disclosed in the S-1? Seems like it'd be a material fact for investors.

    EV tax credit increase to $12,500 in Biden's latest proposal as of 10/28

    Sorry if I'm misunderstanding, but is the Wharton model just ignoring the revenue side *that's reflected in the same chart*?

    EV tax credit increase to $12,500 in Biden's latest proposal as of 10/28

    Seems to me that if we Because the point of an incentive is to incentivize people to do something they otherwise wouldn't. You know, like incentivize buying an EV truck instead of ICE so we don't all die from heat and air pollution and floods, and so China and other countries that heavily...

    Rebelle Rally starts up for Rivian R1T piloted by Emme and Rebecca!

    How did that work last year before the R1T went into production? Was it just for exhibition?

    Official Rivian Stories: A Space To Gather - First Hub Opens @ Venice, CA

    Hope they open one in NYC soon. These events (hosted by REI, Patagonia, etc.) can be great and I've learned a ton from them. Even got to see Conrad Anker talk about Meru before he successfully summited. I don't know how the cost/benefit analysis works from a marketing perspective, but I'm...

    CNN Business Article - "Rivian is no Tesla" has interesting comments from some of our own Forum members

    I give him credit for helping EVs get to this point, but like I said, that alone is not sufficient for me to support Elon or Tesla. Thankfully there are alternatives that don't come with similar baggage.

    CNN Business Article - "Rivian is no Tesla" has interesting comments from some of our own Forum members

    While I won't buy something just because the CEO is a nice guy or the company is socially/environmentally conscious, I definitely avoid supporting companies (leadership included) whose behavior is harmful.

    Roof Rack Arrangements for R1S

    I'm in northern Westchester County but "work" in the city. It would be cool to go in on a pair, although I'm not blessed to be a LE pre-order holder. Maybe I'll wait until you test out your Condor to see if a third rack is necessary 😉.

    What R1S exterior color have you definitely decided upon?

    Really like yellow and forest green, but will likely go with white for practical reasons -- voted undecided.

    Fridge freezer options.

    I have an IceCo -- and I would recommend the company. It's not as cheap as bargain fridges, but significantly cheaper than Dometic/ARB and uses high-quality compressors. Some of the cheaper ones can be less energy efficient (which probably won't matter much if plugged into a Rivian) or can...

    TFL snubbed by Rivian: video

    Just wanted to add that I think Tom from insideEVs and Nikki from Transport Evolved, both of whom were invited to the press drive, are straight shooters from what I can tell. I don't think they'd hide any flaws to stay in RIvian's good graces. Implications otherwise, by TFL and some here, are...
