    Video: Preproduction R1T Begin Rolling Off The Line!

    Now that video is doing what it should! I really, really want my R1T now (as in, right now!). It is a darker brown than I usually select, but I like it. Exciting times. :)

    Lucid Air over 500 miles on a charge!

    Well produced video, makes the Lucid look very appealing. Going to be fun to compare the R1S to Project Gravity. :)

    Lucid Air over 500 miles on a charge!

    I liked the idea of a luxury EV that was actually luxurious. But I can't afford those kind of prices. What I'd really like is the Rolls Royce Cullinan, but can't afford that either. Cost more than my house.

    Federal Tax Credit for Electric Vehicle Chargers Renewed

    I think prices will continue to go lower, even as EVSEs get better (I like bells and whistles). I don't think hurrying to beat the incentive deadline is worth it, so I'm waiting.

    Poll: Rivian Factory Delivery & Tour

    This would give me the excuse to visit a lot of friends that are too spread out to fly to visit. Add going through some great Utah trails sites. But Laguna Beach is right next door. If delivery can take place there, Normal to SoCal may be too much in comparison.

    Rivian Battery Poll - VOTE HERE

    This will be my third EV. First had 100 mile range. Second had 75 mile range (strictly a commuter car). I made both work without much trouble. For me, where I go and how I drive, I want 310 mile range. "300+" will be 'good enough'. So 135kw R1T for me. :like: If I could just get one...

    "EVPassport To Offer $39/Month Unlimited EV Charging, Interoperability, More"

    My electric bill was $20/month when commuting full time in an EV. Yes, I had a short commute, but $40/month whether you use it or not seems quite excessive.

    Rivian drops images of R1T in new color

    It is a bit yellower than Toyota's 'Quicksand' color. But is still close to the color we call 'baby s**t brown'. Do not like.

    Disney+ Options

    Except Amazon will be saying "absolutely no games in our vans. They are work vehicles". They won't care what anyone else gets (unless it is Amazon Prime with Unlimited Music). Sure won't care about Disney+.

    GMC Hummer EV teaser video - 1,000 HP and 11,500 ft lbs

    I started driving about the time seatbelts became required. NO ONE wanted them. No one wanted to pay for them in the increased price of the car, They never would have happened without government regulations. I happen to approve of seatbelts. Guess what? Airbags. Same thing. I hate...

    Rivian Takes On Direct Sales Battle in Several States

    Passed senate only, now goes to house. Not law yet. It doesn't really work like that. You still register, and thus pay tax, in your home state. You just BUY it out of state. You can even have it delivered (by a third party) in your state, so you never need to leave home. These laws are silly.

    Colorado Senate passes bill allowing EV sales directly from manufacturer to consumer

    Only the first step (not law yet) but definitely moving the right direction for consumers. :)

    Crash Test Ratings

    I would not recommend carrying your case of hand grenades in the frunk. Under the passenger seats is clearly a better solution. ;)

    Rivian customers share thoughts about preordering a vehicle

    I, too, felt they were just one more hyped startup... until the Amazon order & investment. That's all that stands between several wannabe EV startups and real products, adequate investment. So that is when I started researching them, then ordered. :blush:

    Rivian Waiting Room: Have you pre-ordered with deposit?

    ONE person has started a rumor to that effect. :rolleyes: Anything could still happen at this point, I'll grant that much.
