    Amazon Delivery Van by Rivian - more details, photos, video

    The earth receives on average (university of oregon) at 40 degrees latitude 600 watts per hour per sq meter x 8 hours = 4.8kwh per sq meter (100 percent efficiency). To get 135kw in 8hrs would require 28 sq meters (253 sq ft)of 100% efficient panels to be be pointed perfectly at the sun for 8 hours.

    Waiting for some serious car journalisms on the Rivian. Theses awkward YouTube interviewers RJ swats away like flies. Goofy personality, dress like your most valuable asset is an Xbox, poor understanding of automotive mechanics. RJ “ I got this”

    Rivian makes cursory attempt to update pre-order holders

    I really like RJ’s style too. The demographic for the r1t and r1s are not simpatico with current marketing and should be fine tuned a bit.

    Partnerships, Autonomous Driving, & Lidar

    Tesla is 5 years ahead at least. They have a billion x miles in the cloud for analysis and are anti lidar (they have deduced it’s not needed). Rivian I believe is going to do both. The future is not based on which tech but which tech is certified by the DOT. Rivian has both bases covered.

    R1T offroad footage and info from from South America!

    Yeah the frame is the battery with internal cooling systems that should not be flexing. Great for handling on road but super stiff chassis off road not optimal.
