    Lucid Air over 500 miles on a charge!

    I was expecting Lucid to wait until the plaid numbers to be revealed before sharing their tri motor version. Once the plaid said <9s 1/4 mile, I didn't think Lucid was going to announce so quickly... are they that confident or are they just going to share since they've given up on beating Tesla?

    Towing

    My guess is that the suspension is prob a bit softer in the R1S for a better on road ride. I think in one of the events they mentioned that they could've increased the towing capacity of the R1T, but decided on different trade offs according to what they thought most buyers would appreciate.

    Video: R1T Towing 11k lbs up high grades at 118º F -- Hot Weather Towing | Progress Report by Rivian

    You really want to be going 70mph with 11klbs in your back? Also, the minimum speed for conducting that towing test is 40mph, for any vehicle and they went beyond that.

    Tesla Battery Day

    I dont think they are going to offer the 250mile range CT since Elon said that less than 300 miles is not enough [ MY cheap version got canceled]. It would be great however If the range for the single motor is 300 miles, starting at 40k, but I highly doubt it.

    Yeah, I saw their response to someone's question, so I pasted it here too. Also the wrap won't be a production option. I didn't think that was even a possibility, but I remember someone asked in the past.

    Probably for test vehicle. In the first production update video, you can see RJ unboxing the headlights. Those were probably the production version.

    Reservations About My Reservation

    These are quotes from RJ when they unveiled the R1T. Rivian as a brand seems to focus on high end materials that shouldn't be concerned with getting them dirty. "We want to focus on the aspirational side. We want to focus on something people desire," he told reporters at a preview event in...

    Video: Preproduction R1T Begin Rolling Off The Line!

    I wonder if that will be an option. Having full underbody protection. It probably will take longer to receive your R1T with that option if available though.
