    "GM sells Lordstown complex to electric-vehicle start-up ..."

    Agreed. It sounds like they're still searching for the funding they'll need to even start on the tooling. There's talk of tapping into a government loan program but that won't cover everything. I saw elsewhere that Workhorse did indeed transfer their consumer reservations to Lordstown. I don't...

    When Did You Pre-Order Your Rivian?

    It was the end of April for us (after we gave up on Workhorse). We may have a wait.

    Tesla Truck Unveiling 11/21

    I'm so looking forward to showing my spouse (who has been agitating for an EV pickup) some images from the unveiling. She thought that the Workhorse pickup was pretty unappealing. This one should produce some memorable quotes. The combination of cab forward design, sharp edges, and such a rigid...

    "GM sells Lordstown complex to electric-vehicle start-up ..."

    Workhorse started taking consumer reservations ($1,000) for the W-15 back in January of 2018. At the time the estimated price that they quoted was $52,500. Now? Who knows. I didn't see any mention of a price either. I wonder if those 6,000 preorders includes any existing consumer reservations...

    Seattle Rivian Event (photos, reactions). Blue R1T + more details revealed

    These reminded me of the discussion we had with the rep standing at the driver side rear of the blue R1T in that last picture (I didn't catch her name). We didn't see any racks out at the Seattle event so we asked her about them. It turned out that's what she worked on and she was wondering...

    Seattle Rivian Event (photos, reactions). Blue R1T + more details revealed

    Wow. You were busy! On these three points I hope that this all degrades gracefully in the absence of an LTE cell connection. Like, umm..., at my house or at many of the locations where I might take an EV adventure vehicle. You'd think that this would go without saying but I have a...

    Seattle Rivian Event (photos, reactions). Blue R1T + more details revealed

    Here are a couple of other pictures from the Seattle event. The first is of RJ addressing the 4-6pm crowd. I think that a few people had already left by then (although we were strongly encouraged to stay until he'd spoken) and there were some people who couldn't be torn away from the vehicles...

    Seattle Rivian Event (photos, reactions). Blue R1T + more details revealed

    I noticed the glare as well. There were high intensity spots set up around all of the cars though and so I don't know how much of it was from that. I also hope we'll see good anti-glare glass there. Speaking of reflections I wonder if one of the reasons we're seeing so many shades of blue in...

    Who might be swayed to Ford?

    We talked to a Rivian rep at the Seattle event this afternoon and had the same "our goal is that you never have to enter a service center" discussion. The rep was quite insistent on that even for our very rural location. As far as Ford and maintenance goes only a few of the Ford dealerships in...

    Seattle Rivian Event (photos, reactions). Blue R1T + more details revealed

    Some of it's the photos but it does look a bit flat compared to the more metallic blues that I'm used to seeing on other cars. Still it was our favorite of the colors at the Seattle event and we weren't the only ones. RJ joked that he'd already sold that one multiple times that afternoon. We...
