In my experience with new EV's the manufacturer starts with a very big reserve, then ups the usable capacity based on data from the current fleet and battery deg. Seems like the deg is good enough they think they can up the reserve.
You're going to hate me. I always wanted one and found it 200 miles away with 30k on it for $2k. Knocked em down to $1500. Fully functioning bike with the hard cases and abs. Just some scrapes on one head from a drop. It's a nice addition to the stable.
I was terrified of how bad the efficient would be but she did great. I should have taken this picture before getting off the highway but the average w:as over 70, setting cruise to 78-80. Temps in the high 30s to low 40s. Conserve mode with auto height. 1.75mi/kw was pretty easily sustainable. I...
I would have done the same BUT the manual still has the storage locker in the front of the bed as best as I can tell, it just goes unused. I'm happy enough with my jank setup and the truck in my driveway.
You're not lying. I had my whole bed ripped apart about 75 miles and 48 hours into ownership because I needed a truck to move with with the bed OPEN. I'm sure it's all held together now by about 25% of the factory clips.
This is for those that don't want to be stuck with their bed either open or closed. I want it closed for efficiency but the ability to open it up if I want to toss a motorcycle back there from time to time, and I don't want to have to bring it to Rivian each time I want to change it. It's is...
- Disabling map auto zoom
- auto navigate to work / home
- Calm down the traffic avoidance a bit. It sends me to side roads that are often just as slow, if not slower, then the highway during rush hour.
- A medium suspension setting. Soft is too soft, stiff is too stiff.
If you look at the tear downs there is a bunch of stuff right there, that is my guess as to why. If you watch the long way up there was a bunch of stuff actually under the hood that got moved for production.
