    Lordstown Endurance Unveiling

    Alright, well with the deletion of those posts I guess I'm just going to have to take that as the admins of this forum asserting that gays and minorities being lesser humans than the rest of us is a valid political point of view and therefore a taboo one to even mention in terms of a business...

    Lordstown Endurance Unveiling

    It's not politics to note that gays and minorities are overwhelmingly not big fans of Mike Pence and that alienating them needlessly was a dumb move. What are any of you actually flagging as "politics" here? If it were about somebody dragging politics into it, why aren't you mad at Lordstown?

    Lack of Communication??

    Fair enough. That was basically my point earlier, but then it occurred to me this wouldn't be a bad place to sneak a wish-list to Rivian in : )

    Lordstown Endurance Unveiling

    Well, I don't want to drag this out but you guys might want to keep in mind that I've been insulted twice so far. It was suggested my post was crap and that I was speaking for people who I don't know when they are in fact my friends, family and neighbors. I have not responded in kind, and nobody...

    Lack of Communication??

    Okay, yeah, I'd also like to know when the test drive events will happen now that things are moving again. At least whether hoping for fall test drives would be delusional.

    Lordstown Endurance Unveiling

    Even if I didn't think it was kind of ugly, I'd be wanting to wait and see a year or two to see how it goes with the motor-in-wheel thing. They may regret calling it "Endurance" if those motors aren't nigh-indestructible.

    Lack of Communication??

    Okay, I can qualify. What don't we know that would make sense to tell us before their first production line is up and running and every part/supply source is nailed down? Until everything is lined up, it's better to hint what colors will be available, than promise them in a press release. On...

    Rivian Plans Major Plant Expansion In Normal

    Pre-Covid they were talking tests by end of 2nd Q, IIRC. I think they were expecting to have their first line up and running by about now. So they were 2-3 months away before the factory shut down? I'm still wrapping my head around the early build-out of the plant though. Does this increase the...

    Rivian Plans Major Plant Expansion In Normal

    OR, they keep getting more preorders in spite of Covid and they need more space to continue new line expansion to meet demand through 2021. That starts with contractors building the spaces. I don't see why that would delay the rest of the operation. If they get to crash tests by fall, My bet's...

    How is it getting traction mid-slide on gravel like that? That's just cool.

    5,000 Model 3 Owners Bare All

    The problem has not gone away: https://electrek.co/2020/06/16/tesla-model-y-quality-issues/ This is what I'm talking about with the publicly traded factor. Pressure from a select group of investors is one thing. Constant pressure every quarter from people who know nothing about your business...

    Cool Rivian Patent/TradeMark Info

    Stock art of their first car design? Which patent was that from? https://insideevs.com/features/398296/rivian-electric-sports-car/

    5,000 Model 3 Owners Bare All

    Fit & finish issues are avoidable. In that regard, Tesla has just been very sloppy and more market-minded than brand or product-minded. And I'll believe Musk has learned from the Y when the CT, an aggressively priced, much more exotic vehicle with a lot fewer shared parts, is also released with...

    Rivian R2X and R1V model names trademarked

    I believe R1V will be a rivian vehicle, not the Amazon van. Wondering if R2R is now the R2X.

    Rivian PLEASE HIDE THAT WIPER!!

    Rear wiper at top forming a half circle from the ceiling? I'd rather just see the wiper.

    Why are you buying your Rivian?

    I happily refer to my R1T preorder as my "midlife crisis."

    Confirmed: Production start delayed until June 2021

    I think it's fine to post anonymous sourced stuff as long as it's obvious that's what it it is. But it's really hard to set dates at this point. At best their source is only speculating and probably at least a little bit annoyed that they framed it as a definitive "huge setback."
