    Hummer Copies Rivian: No Wonder GM & Rivian Couldn't Reach a Deal

    In general I agree with most of your post. Where I disagree is that being first as a marketing gimmick is a bad thing. They are leveraging what they are good at and getting into the fight. While it may be a copycat effort, it gets them in the game. They have a dealer network and ability to...

    Hummer Copies Rivian: No Wonder GM & Rivian Couldn't Reach a Deal

    The Cybertruck isnt for me either but I LOVE the audacity of it. I would love to own one because its fun. But where am I going to park it? I have a three car garage and I am asking that question.... The Hummer is more reasonable and its not that I dont like a brutish vehicle. Its just not...

    I was worried a little bout that and why I tired to uplevel it a little. ;) I dont begrudge the conversation but you are correct deserves its own thread. However I want to specifically thank those that have taken the time to provide info. That is not a small lift.

    Thank you for your reply, what I mean by constant supply is that the envelope is specific and defined. It doesnt change.

    At the risk of grossly over simplifying, this envelope specifies what the possible range of energy that could be supplied to the vehicle? This provides a "constant availability" that can be consumed by the vehicle. The actual charge time and efficacy will be based significantly on the battery...

    Hummer Copies Rivian: No Wonder GM & Rivian Couldn't Reach a Deal

    It occurs to me that the Electric Hummer's real short term competition is the Raptor. Loaded Raptors have been selling at a premium markup. Look at the config, where the Rivian is intended to go where a raptor or wrangler could go with the environment considered, the Raptor wants to do it at...

    My guess is config will be first factor, Then preorder date for those ordering similar configs. At least that’s how I would do it. from a business perspective I wonder how much is supply chain and how much is a need to make money quickly.

    Interesting take and I totally agree with this However I would guess they have enough pre-orders that launching a configurator as a marketing tool wouldn't need to be delayed. Basically if you are a prospective Rivian buyer who hasn't preordered already, your vehicle is a year out and many...

    Milwaukee reservation holder here!

    Hoping for a factory delivery option down in IL. Also if there are any off road enthusiasts in the area I would love to hear about local trails that would be fun in the R1T.

    Do you think that Rivian vehicles could get the same hate that Tesla owners sometimes deal with?

    I think it will be a novelty for quite a while. My guess is in certain places where there are ALOT of Teslas they likely were enjoying the speed a little too much and built up a hate for rude driving, additionally I know ICE owners didnt like Electric vehicle only spots and that built up some...

    Rivian R1T to participate in the 2020 Rebelle Rally [Update: 6th Place Finish]

    My guess is its all the monitoring gear, sensors, computers and anything else they might need access to without putting the R!T on a lift. If I could make it easy to access for a huge journey thats what I would do.

    I don’t understand when people need things to fit in their definition of proper. This is a new car company. An industry that can define the difference between an economic super power and not. They are extraordinarily complex operations under the best of circumstances. Is Rivian acting solely in...

    Amazon unveils its new electric delivery vans built by Rivian

    This contract is why I am so bullish on Rivian. With this much production the end product is going to get better as it gets so much field use, Rivian has legs...

    RJ Interviewed on Bloomberg Live

    I think you are correct. However the heat and chemicals from the burning of petroleum exacerbate this problem was my only point.

    Roof Options - What is your preference?

    Yeah I am trying to be careful with that, depending on options I gotta decide if this is a 10 year vehicle or a short term lease. If its a buy then bigger battery, and if the roof is $$$$ then it falls by the wayside and I will wait longer for delivery. I am inclined to buy but this is a first...

    Roof Options - What is your preference?

    This would not surprise me, in fact I was shocked to see it in the FAQs. I didnt mention it before, the other thing that scares me is the complexity of a removable roof. Seals, noise, etc... Its the first vehicle from a new manufacturer, KISS.
