    Lucid Motors SUV

    The Lucid Air is a beautiful car. However for an suv or rally car as a second to the future R1T in our family, it seems Rivian is a better match for our lifestyle.

    Yellow and Blue R1T promotional shoot with Normal Police

    I like this brighter yellow a lot. It would be a tough choice if they did a copper color too. So much excitement.

    Rivian Eyes Laguna Beach South Coast Cinemas

    Partnering with REI, Sylvansport, or other outdoor brands seems like a really good idea.

    Rivian Battery Poll - VOTE HERE

    180 kwh R1T. We travel around to various trails 2-3 times per week and the 400ish miles would allow us to do all of them charging only when we get back to the house or at the hotel/campsite. Also, we intend to tow our super light camp-tent trailer with mountain bikes and kayaks. That will...

    No other electric pickup will be out by June of 2021. Anyone who has not preordered will not get one until likely 2023 due to production ramp up. It is good to have confirmation finally.

    Where Does Rivian Go From Here: Future Talk

    China has a lot of people, but how big is the truck market there? As far as I can find, Western Europe also doesn’t seem to have the same large vehicle market (trucks and such). So it seems they would need smaller vehicles before they would push into those markets.

    Anyone worried?

    Torn on the going public thing. Their stock would be a no-brainer. However, it leaves them somewhat at the whims of investors who are often clueless and completely without vision. A company like Rivian will soar because they know their vision and are not hindered by folks locking them down. It...

    So No Deliveries in 2020?

    Great article. That major survey a while back indicated 75% of EV owners have never charged away from home. The article points out this requires you own a home to charge at. It further illustrates the engineering and economic challenges for charging and just electricity systems ahead as the EV...

    Rivian Plans Major Plant Expansion In Normal

    Yeah. The waiting is hard. So many companies are pushing back dates. If it gets to me by the end of next summer I’ll be happy. It is exciting that they are expanding, but I want my flippin’ truck!!

    Rivian plans own charging network called Rivian Adventure Network!

    Olympic National Park would be nice too. While we’re at it: let’s hit Glacier and Teddy Roosevelt parks also. Driving northern U.S. is a bit rough for EVs right now.

    Why are you buying your Rivian?

    Wife and I have wanted a truck for twenty years, but wife said no way she would buy that much gas. Currently having a midlife crisis and wanting a sports car for that get-up-and-go. Have also wanted to go electric, but it was not really functional for the distances we were driving (200-300 mile...
