    I hope Rivian can eventually target more middle class consumers

    I think the gear tunnel is more of an outcome from the overall design as opposed to a high cost option. Yes, the doors, locking come with a cost, but otherwise it's wasted space that was always going to be there. Much like the frunk.

    I hope Rivian can eventually target more middle class consumers

    Good call. Rivian without 4 motors is quite knee capped and as you said, minimal costs for the motor themselves, and more about the engineering and optimization (which should get cheaper in time with added scale and experience). There's been other news with more electric vehicles oustourcing...

    I hope Rivian can eventually target more middle class consumers

    Yeah, wish I had the magic bullet to solve this issue, but the only things I can think of that might help eventually bring down costs: Don't need autonomous driving.

    Are you excited or dissapointed?

    I was always going to be disappointed because any trim has always been out of my budget. :) I love these vehicles, will always be cheering for Rivian and hope they grow as a company. Most likely I'll need to wait for their equivalent of a Model 3 vehicle.....and keep driving my aging SUV a few...

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

    Just wondering if you would think that owning a Rivian, you might be at risk to find you door keyed, or deal with road jerks who just hate electric vehicles on the same road with them. I'd say that Rivian is still not a household name and most people would not recognize them, but when they do...
