    BMW X5-Xdrive45e Plug-in Hybrid while I wait for Rivian

    The potential for a big depreciation hit is very real. Most likely scenario is keeping this BMW and getting the R1T (or 2nd gen) in about five years. If that means passing up my reservation slot then so be it. As said, if Rivian is real then it will be here for many years to come. Buying...

    BMW X5-Xdrive45e Plug-in Hybrid while I wait for Rivian

    They are available on BMW lots already. Had to order mine since I'm picky with my preferences (for that much money), and I want the Manhattan Green with the coffee brown leather. Really hard to find. Autotrader had 1 like it in the US on the East coast. Like all BMW's it seems, if you want...

    BMW X5-Xdrive45e Plug-in Hybrid while I wait for Rivian

    You can say I wanted to "cut my teeth" on a hybrid so I can enjoy lots of electric-only trips but still have the confidence of knowing that engine is there to go where I want, when I want, and as far as I want. My daily commute and weekend routines rarely exceed 30-40 miles in a day. So this...

    Introductions! Drop in and say hello new and old members...

    Drive a '19 Toy 4Runner TRD-offroad. Love its abilities off-road but old, laggy engine (bulletproof but under-powered). Styling is "manly" but growing stale. Virtually zero tech - no sensor tech, like a 5" screen with ancient interface, etc. Gets maybe 15 mpg in regular driving. Rock-solid...

    Your Actual Place in Reservation Line, Based on Rivian Preorder #

    What has to be factored "on top of R1T/S" build rate and capacity utilization is Rivian's commitment to building EV skateboard chassis and maybe more for likes of Amazon, Ford, others.... They may even profit more from high-volume production of universal EV battery/drivetrains than on complete...
