    Factory production floor - recent look

    Well if Rivian isn't selling trucks to non-employees yet, what's the difference between a prototype and a production truck anyway? :turkey:

    What is 2mi/kWh?

    Luckily heavy duty trucks don't need to be EPA rated.

    I’m backkkkk. What do you want to see / know?

    Is the hardware in the truck to reconfigure the battery for 800V charging? I know, easy question to answer.

    What is 2mi/kWh?

    E-tron S is rated worse than the R1T and the R1S.

    Factory production floor - recent look

    Rivian absolutely could send a C&D over the photo and be within their rights, depending on what the contract of entry is, like if they require a photographer to surrender all copyright to photos taken. Well, technically it's a chevy.

    Factory production floor - recent look

    Some of them are pretty compromising. Here's a paint robot getting to know a car a little too well when the conveyor shuttle got stuck.

    It's most likely a violation of their policy to take photos inside the plant. That never stopped me in other plants but I also didn't tend to share them because of the policy.

    Cancelling R1T Preorder - Reasons

    There's still a lot of unknowns about the R1T's efficiency, but if your family has grown out of the need of having one, then it doesn't make sense to get it.

    Roof Top Tents- My Pet Peeve

    Not me. I'm going to get an RTT for over the bed, one for over the cab, and one to mount on the roof rack of my teardrop!

    South park has been going downhill. The absurdity of reality has been outpacing Matt and Trey's creativity for a while now. To get back to the topic on hand, my wife parked on my charging cable last night, I had to move her car. Which is a pain in the ass because hers is also plugged in, and...

    It's all related. People are scared of change and will do anything they can to stop it or slow down its progress. Some are capable of accepting change when it's not something they have built their identity out of. People hate to be proven wrong (myself included).

    You're not wrong, but Fox news definitely has more of a contradictory fake outrage sky-is-falling aspect to it.

    That's the problem. Fox News is an entertainment channel. They've argued this themselves in court. There is no news.

    Factory production floor - recent look

    I've never spent any time in the QC area of a plant (what this looks like to me), so I can't really say if this is normal or not. I'd expect it could be if there was an issue that was discovered and it meant needing to rework something on dozens of vehicles.

    Factory production floor - recent look

    I drive by auto plants pretty regularly. It's not unusual to see hundreds of vehicles parked in the lots ready to be shipped somewhere.

    Arriving at a charger to find them all blocked is like getting to a gas station to find out the station is out of gas.

    At the risk of generalizing, why?

    Roof Top Tents- My Pet Peeve

    Have you ever used one? If not, your opinion is null and void. You're just making a lot of assumptions. If you're driving an EV and camping somewhere that has power, odds are good that when you're in the tent, the vehicle is going to be charging, so complaining about not being able to take the...

    Drag Races: Rivian R1T vs Ram TRX and Model Y Performance

    My Polestar 2 doesn't seem any slower to 60 with snow tires on unless the road is wet or I'm accelerating out of a corner. Having such fine grained torque control is amazing.

    Lack of Android Auto / Waze is a reason to cancel

    It's engineering time they don't want to invest. I totally get why they are doing it the way they are. It's not just a simple software flag they can flip on to enable it. Ultimately I'm hesitant to form an opinion on their system now because I haven't interacted with it at all and I have no...
