    So No Deliveries in 2020?

    They're still not quite as easy to use as a Tesla supercharger, where you simply plug in your car and let the system identify the car and bill any charges to the payment method on file---Ford is going to do the same thing with their Mach E and the Ford Pass Charging network...

    Rivian DCFC speed 300 kW?

    Model 3 V2 charging curve is unlike any I have ever seen. It also begs the question of whether an owner can set the peak kW charging rate at (150?) and the session might be faster due to a different charging curve?

    Rivian DCFC speed 300 kW?

    One question: what does the charging curve look like? Tesla may advertise 250kW rate but...this rate is early in session and will quickly taper down some where around35%SOC.

    Let's talk about charging on long distance travel?

    Telsa superchargers only work with Tesla cars. Telsa cars can use CHAdeMO chargers (limited to 50 kW speed) with an adapter. All other cars but Nissian in the USA use CCS ports for charging.

    Let's talk about charging on long distance travel?

    The 410 mile range you stated is going to be less than that when traveling on the interstate at typical speeds of 70mph+. An example would be the Tesla models with 315 mile range or 4 miles/kW. I have read of owners obtaining 2.5 miles/kW while driving on the interstate. Can't tell you...

    what is the voltage system for the Rivian compared to Tesla?

    Tesla does "advertise" fast charging capabilities and "range" to enhance sales and image. I have read of owners having their SC experience throttled. I am aware that they reduced the L2 capacity to 11.3kW(is that the number a 60 amp, 240V line can create?) from some higher number. I'm...
