    R1T - Running, Brake, Signal, and Fog lights

    In many countries driving with rear fog lights on in clear weather is illegal therefore making the controls separate makes sense

    Rivian Adventure Network (RAN) Charging Station Specs Revealed: 300kW with 200-920V Output

    Those are L2 chargers. There's one CCS location. On the photo it looks like CPE250, which would mean 62.5kW or 125kW if no one is using the other stall.

    Electrify America charging issues - More RAN stations because I don't want to deal with this nonsense.

    I use EA quite regularly and I don't have any concerns. Yes, sometimes a plug won't work, but there is always at least 4 at the location.

    Video discusses Rivian's Prime Charging: RAN (Rivian Adventure Network) with some ABRP options

    I agree. In my current car I'm getting around 60 interstate miles in 20 minutes. Anything above 100 miles in a vehicle that looks like a brick ;-) will make me happy.

    Video discusses Rivian's Prime Charging: RAN (Rivian Adventure Network) with some ABRP options

    Pretty sure that by 140 miles in 20 minutes Rivian does not mean 140 miles of range at 70 mph. It will probably be 140 EPA miles at best possible charging conditions. I don't count on more than 110-120 interstate miles charge in 20 minutes.

    They did in my case. Before Rivian I would never even consider a truck.

    How much would you pay to use Teslas Supercharger network?

    What Tesla markets as destination charging is actually the exact opposite https://www.tesla.com/destination-charging

    Who will get theirs first?

    I doubt they will do that. For example if you want to pickup your Corvette at the factory/museum it costs extra.

    Chevy Bolt and Bolt SUV

    I think it's definitely good value for the money, however with with max charge rate of 55 kW it's mostly suitable to drive around city. Super Cruise is mostly useful on road trips in my opinion, so it doesn't go quite well with this charge rate. I'd probably choose ID.4 at this point. With...

    How much would you pay to use Teslas Supercharger network?

    In my region there is not much difference between Tesla SC and EA network - location wise. However most SCs are 150 kW while EA's location are 350 kW, which for vehicle like Rivian should matter. Assuming that charging at SC would be possible, most probably I wouldn't even bother to get an...

    Fast Charging Network Coming to Tennessee

    For this specific route you should be good with Rivian even today if you're OK in model X. EA has almost identical spacing of chargers along I-40. And whereas all SCs outside of Nashville are 150 kW, all EA locations have 350 kW chargers.

    Fast Charging Network Coming to Tennessee

    That's great news Ryan! Are locations known at this point? If not is it safe to assume that they will be installed along the corridors outlined here? https://www.tn.gov/content/dam/tn/environment/energy/documents/EVChargingOpportunityMap_DCFC_11.20.pdf

    Fast Charging Network Coming to Tennessee

    I hope this will be the case. All budget friendly cars coming this year can charge at or close to 150kW rate-VW ID.4, Ford Mach-E, Nissan Ariya. Hyundai Ioniq 5 will probably be capable to charge at even higher rates. And this is already this year and at the lower end of EV price range. Keeping...

    Fast Charging Network Coming to Tennessee

    In the documents they talk about 'at least 50kW' chargers. I believe it was written in 2019, so hopefully they will install something with more power than that.

    Well I guess some of us will have to cancel their preorders :P. Unless they really look for "Project Manger" https://boards.greenhouse.io/rivian/jobs/4302543003

    Tesla loses top manufacturing engineer behind battery production to Rivian

    EA has a charger in Bishop. They also have one at Coso Junction, 30 miles from Inyokern. Both are 350kW

    The One Dealbreakers Thread to Rule Them All

    Got ya. I see it will basically have an outlet providing up to 3.5 kW vs Rivian's ~1.6kW. It will also support 220V. Nice. Personally it doesn't make much difference for me as I'm not in a market for a compact hatchback.

    The One Dealbreakers Thread to Rule Them All

    I also don't have any deal breakers at this point. The major disappointment is lack of Android Auto. For now the only possible deal breakers I can think about are: 1. No proper blind spot monitoring system in side mirrors 2. No 360 top-down camera view 3. Service center further than 45 minute...
