    $0.01 kWh home electricity rate

    Right here a few posts up. Daytime isn’t terrible, but people running the AC in the evening to cool down the house aren’t super thrilled. https://www.rivianforums.com/forum/threads/0-01-kwh-home-electricity-rate.7132/post-182058

    $0.01 kWh home electricity rate

    At least you get a few hours of peak sun for those who have solar. SCE in SoCal now has peak structured in such a way that if you have solar most of your generation is off peak, and peak is when you aren’t producing. California really doesn’t give two sh!ts about jacking costs up to levels that...

    2022 Rivian R1T vs. F-150 Lightning : The Closest Finish in Motortrend History

    As I understand it, Geely did indeed purchase Volvo in 2010, effectively throwing them a lifeline when their back was against the wall after that Global Financial Crisis hit. I’m not sure they were as bad off as Saab, but they were struggling. Along with the acquisition they provided them a ton...

    2022 Rivian R1T vs. F-150 Lightning : The Closest Finish in Motortrend History

    As a first time truck owner (Lightning Platinum) and R1S reservation holder since April '19 I'm trying to take an objective look at this, and not as a "Ford" guy just because it happened to arrive first (it's my first Ford/domestic). Still super pumped and excited for the R1S. I'm also...

    $0.01 kWh home electricity rate

    That’s why I moved to domestic rate with SoCal Edison when the punted me from my NEM 1.0. No TOU to deal with - just pure net in/net out.

    Tax Credit Changes in new bill [LOCKED DUE TO POLITICS & ARGUING]

    Not if it’s an extended range Lariat or the Platinum…both are too expensive so Ford isn’t likely thrilled. The same person who wants a nice Rivian might want a more well optioned and longer range Lightning and they are SOL. Got mine on Saturday I’m happier than a pig in $hit - absolutely love...

    Tax Credit Changes in new bill [LOCKED DUE TO POLITICS & ARGUING]

    I live in SoCal and I get it. $300k *could* be practically paycheck to paycheck without making any extravagant lifestyle choices. At the same time, there is no shortage of luxury cars with no incentives, or people optioning up lower priced cars, wherever I’m out on the road. I may be wrong, but...

    Tax Credit Changes in new bill [LOCKED DUE TO POLITICS & ARGUING]

    W2 tax donkeys don't have that option...we just need to suck it up and pay the man.

    Tax Credit Changes in new bill [LOCKED DUE TO POLITICS & ARGUING]

    I guess a lot of people here will be kissing that tax credit goodbye in 2023. Glad I received my Lightning here in 2022 as I think the current rules apply. On one hand it's a bummer that the income limit is where it is, but on the other hand if you're in the higher income brackets I don't...

    1,260 Days Later…

    Congrats! Love the yellow. Wishing you many great adventures with it. The wait for my April ‘19 deposit R1S continues through 1H 2023 for now, but after seeing it at the Venice hub this week my enthusiasm for Rivian is definitely back.

    Volvo, Mercedes and now BMW going Android Automotive

    I feel like my experience has been so different in the Polestar. The TCAM issues are well documented, but overall Android Automotive has been great for me.

    Volvo, Mercedes and now BMW going Android Automotive

    Absolutely love Android Automotive in my Polestar - voice controls are so natural and everything just feels seamless. Funny thing is that the CarPlay update came last night for me, and I used it today on my way to Venice to check out the R1S, and I found myself missing the native Android...

    R1S Reviews Master List: Jalopnik, Inside EVs, TFL, etc

    My Rivian excitement had been waning for months, but watching so many in action got me excited again. My new issue is the color choice - I’d do yellow in a heartbeat if the family would let me, but that was summarily shot down (looked amazing in the Edmunds RiviON review). White looks great...

    Next R1S delivery timeline update email coming July 1 - says customer service

    I think we need to agree to disagree...as you'd be waiting a long time for that fix according to the post i linked to above. Enjoy your R1T and I'll enjoy my Lightning while waiting for my R1S. FWIW I just asked owners at the Lightning forum about build quality - we'll see what they have to say.

    Next R1S delivery timeline update email coming July 1 - says customer service

    Either way I wish Rivian the best. Intend to take delivery whenever it arrives, and I'm sure they'll make improvements to their mfg over time. https://www.rivianforums.com/forum/posts/160883/

    Next R1S delivery timeline update email coming July 1 - says customer service

    Can someone please find me that picture of the dented roofs being delivered? Can’t find it but saw it’s a thing. I’ll take a software fix for proper PSI of a tire over physical defects any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    R1S Delivery Update Email (June 30, 2022)

    FWIW I'm an April '19 reservation for what became the R1S Failure to Launch Edition. Live about 5 miles from Irvine HQ & 10 miles from the Costa Mesa Service Center. I'm also 1H 2023. Originally started as a GW/OC, but switched to FG (due to an ask from my kids) and then BM (trying to get it...

    Next R1S delivery timeline update email coming July 1 - says customer service

    You own one and I don't so I can't speak from experience, but based on the overall "quality" of the builds I've seen on the various forums I'd say that's debatable. I haven't seen any issues pop up on the Lightning forums.

    Next R1S delivery timeline update email coming July 1 - says customer service

    Just got the same email with the same timeline of first half of 2023. I'm an April 2019 preorder, and I live within 5 miles of their Irvine HQ and about 10 miles from their Costa Mesa service center. Not knowing where I was on the list of R1S's vs. R1T's, I'm somewhat surprised & disappointed...
