I think Rivian was holding out to show prices for different trim levels until the Hummer was announced. GM’s pricing can allow Rivian to keep prices high. I think the Hummer is a closer competitor to the R1T than the Cybertruck or eventual electric F150.
I made myself to be easily swayed by the...
This is bad news. The Cybertruck put pressure on Rivian to lower their price, but at over $100k and only 350 mile range, Rivian can easily argue to keep prices high. That and the $70k version won’t be delivered for almost 4 years.
Rivian ran the risk of flipping that trailer. I didn’t any sway control on their hitch. I wouldn’t have run it the way they did. A bit dangerous if some wind picked up or a big rig passes close going the opposite direction.
A) My f-150 loses more than 50% range towing a similarly shaped, lower weight trailer
B) Did they tow the R1T to the desert inside the trailer being pulled by a RAM? If so, that's lame. Should've towed that white trailer all the way there. At least do a better job of hiding it in the video
I just put down my deposit on Sept. 18th and I want to go to one of these private events. Does anyone know when the San Francisco event is? Have they announced it and I signed up too late? If so, any tips to get on the list?
