    For me, it is less about the configurator and more about not being open and transparent about missing self stated deadlines.

    We have photos and videos of those things. We also have photos and videos of Nikola's "working" prototype.

    We don't know if Rivian is only just struggling with planning and communications, now do we? And the comparison is Nikola's failure to meet its own deadlines and Rivian's failure to meet its own deadlines.

    The how doesn't matter, they should be far more transparent in communicate it in a manner that everyone can see and reference it.

    Why? We know about as much about Rivian as we do Nikola.

    It doesn't matter, because they didn't revise that. If when they realize they couldn't meet that deadline, they needed to revise it and let people know. With all the lies from Nikola and other start-ups, any lack of transparency makes a company such as their look very very bad.

    I am really losing faith in Rivian. They are making promises and not keeping them. Tomorrow is the last day of summer, and still no configurator.

    Anyone considering the Nikola Badger alternative?

    But still, he could dump them all on 12/3 and walk away. I really hope he ends up in jail. He is a huge asshole.

    Anyone considering the Nikola Badger alternative?

    Yes, because now that he has resigned, he can start unloading his shares without reporting it.

    That doesn't mean much. The rolling resistance is the smallest impact on range. An 11,000 low profile trailer will have considerably less impact on range as a travel trainer with solar panels and air conditioners on the roof.

    The weight has the smallest impact. The drag is huge. How fast were you going?

    It says 440V in the subtitles. Also, they filed a patent showing the use of a 450V battery that could be charged at 900V. It is really simple. You just have two 450V packs in parallel to operate the vehicle, then switch them to series for charging. It wouldn't be 440 miles while towing. We...

    Although the power output from the motors is not impacted, the ability of the thinner air to cool components is reduced. You have less airflow over those components that need to be cooled.

    I would have expected them to really push it. Like 15,000 pounds, and/or 70mph. A good testing program will find the limits of a vehicle.

    Fully Charged covers Long Way Up and Rivian & R1T

    Harley Davidson still trying to remain relevant, but they really are a company that needs to die. It is a nice looking bike, but I just would never buy from a company with Harley Davidsons poor reliability & quality reputation.

    Anyone considering the Nikola Badger alternative?

    The book about Nikola and Trevor Milton should be called "I don't read books."
