Great find, you just discovered that Rivian plans to offer its own insurance (like Tesla) and also a collision repair program! Neither of these have been known until now.
I like that the company is thinking bigger scope and diversifying its business plan. By offering insurance and a repair...
Not directed at the messenger (you) but that site has clickbait tendencies. And without citing an actual source that delayed production date is clickbait and pure rumor to me. We all know there's going to be production delay, but the fact that someone has shared actual timing with them is suspect.
Colorado Bill 167 just passed allowing direct sales of electric vehicles from manufacturer to consumers.
Score one for Rivian and anyone in Colorado. :clap:

We know a hatchback crossover rally-style vehicle is one of them: https://www.rivianforums.com/threads/possible-first-peek-at-rivians-future-rally-model.40/
I'm definitely looking forward to that one. The Model Y and Mach-E are both too soft and traditional for me. A more rally-raid type...
I can't believe that article has made the rounds on so many sites. Read the disclosure at the bottom, the author is a swing trader! He trades off swings in a company's stock price so this is a doomsday hit piece IMO and for all we know he's got a short position on Ford and hoping this article...
If you read the comments from the company, it's priced so high because they refuse to borrow $ to produce their vehicles, like so many startups do, which gets them into financial trouble early. Noble business plan but judging by the reactions on the internet, the sticker shock may make the...
Doesn't seem like a full sized SUV so not a R1S direct competitor? But looks like a smaller SUV with Mustang inspired styling.
Pretty decent stats -- should get 300 miles range, 400+ horsepower, and be both AWD and RWD.
Great event for Rivian to be attending Overland Expo as it's the largest overloading event every year. They're sure to catch a ton of attention there with the R1T. Would be a nice place to introduce some accessories too since everyone there is so geared towards modifying/accessorizing.
Great news for Rivian's financial situation! GM must be pissed :headbang: Ford must not have asked for exclusivity since that's one of the reasons Scaringe cited for the GM negotiations failing.
Wonder what EV Ford will build on the skateboard architecture??
Thought it was CGI in the first few seconds but that's real footage. Having a separate motor at each wheel, each independently controlled, with no mechanical linkage between them and therefore no need for differentials, makes for all sorts of traction advantages. :like:
Wow yet another backtrack today! After last week's announcement about closing all stores, Musk is now saying they'll keep half of the stores open but raise prices on Teslas by an average of 3%. Really seems to be making decisions on the fly over there...
