  1. Service center updates - Trenton and maybe SE PA

    Lucid is definitely opening up around the KoP mall. I'm an electrical contractor and we bid on the project at the end of last year. It might be that they consider it a service center and showroom, but not a place for sales?
  2. Highway Assist Turned Off Around NYC

    It still pisses me off that they don't offer a "dumb" cruise control as a fall back option when the adaptive cruise control is unavailable. Such as when the front camera is blocked by snow/ice/fog/etc.
  3. Car and Driver test review: Dual Motor Rivian has similar highway range results as quad

    This 1000 times over. The most useful thing the EPA could do (for EV's) is to simply run 3 steady speed highway range tests. At 60, 70, and 80 mph. Create a baseline in a controlled environment. Say at 75°. Low speed efficiency doesn't really matter because you can almost drive forever at low...
  4. 🚨 Rivian Adopts Tesla NACS Standard! (Adapters in 2024, Standard Charging Port in 2025)

    Yes and no. They are limited to sub maximal speeds because they use 800V architecture. But they have a trick where they use the rear motor as an inverter when charging from a 400V charger, hypothetically giving them a maximum charging speed of 150kW at a magic dock station. That wasn't working...
  5. 🚨 Rivian Adopts Tesla NACS Standard! (Adapters in 2024, Standard Charging Port in 2025)

    See I knew someone smarter than me could explain why there hasn't been a lot of DCFC installed in needed, but underutilized, locations!
  6. 🚨 Rivian Adopts Tesla NACS Standard! (Adapters in 2024, Standard Charging Port in 2025)

    I absolutely agree. I don't understand why they can't just raise their prices to whatever it costs to make stations in these places profitable. Places like Corolla, NC or Moab, UT, where there's no other charging options, should just charge whatever it takes to at least break even. Even if it...
  7. 🚨 Rivian Adopts Tesla NACS Standard! (Adapters in 2024, Standard Charging Port in 2025)

    We stay in Corolla every other year so I know exactly where you're referring to. Stations like that are not just going to be cost ineffective. They're going to be HUGE loss leaders because of demand charges. Do a google search for "electricity demand charges". Basically, commercial customers...
  8. 🚨 Rivian Adopts Tesla NACS Standard! (Adapters in 2024, Standard Charging Port in 2025)

    Based on my reading, I don't think the NEVI text precludes Tesla from getting NEVI funding. A simple google search for "full NEVI text" brought me to https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2023/02/28/2023-03500/national-electric-vehicle-infrastructure-standards-and-requirements Here's what...
  9. My Rivian completely dead from ~40% vampire drain after a month long vacation

    It's wild to hear that Rivian thinks even 1%/day is acceptable. We've left my wife's XC40 Recharge at the airport for 2 separate week long trips, and came back to the same SoC as when we left. Here's someone who left theirs unplugged at home and only lost 1% in 6 weeks...
  10. OCNJ to get DCFC

    While I understand your frustration with EA, as an electrical contractor who's been involved in a few DCFC installations, most of the time the holdups are with the inspection processes with the state/township/municipality/third-party inspectors. Another big thing could be supply chain related...
  11. OCNJ to get DCFC

    This is great news. I'm still waiting for the EA station in Egg Harbor township to come online. It's very odd. If you type the address in to Google Maps and then switch to satellite view, the spot where the Walmart should be just looks like an abandoned building/map, shopping complex...
  12. Detailing/PPF in Philly Burbs Area?

    No idea about their prices but they certainly seem to know what they're doing: Grand Prix Concours: https://gpconcours.com/
  13. North East roll call

    I saw an R1T roll past me in Doylestown PA last night as I was taking my son to tee ball practice. It happened so fast I almost didn't believe my eyes. Only caught it for a couple seconds. It was silver/white/limestone. If I didn't need to be somewhere I would have altered my plans and drove...
  14. R1T Launch Edition delivered in southeatern PA

    I saw an R1T roll past me in Doylestown PA last night as I was taking my son to tee ball practice. It happened so fast I almost didn't believe my eyes. Only caught it for a couple seconds.
