    Gee whiz, QuantumScape (QS) is highly speculative.

    I didn't see Amazon or Google in your list. I've set aside a couple bucks for a Rivian IPO and I also put a couple bucks into QuantumScape - hoping they crack the solid state battery code...

    400+ Escalade EV for 2021— what does this forum think?

    I'm a Cadillac fan. My wife drove an Escalade and I moved her down to the X5 as her health deteriorated. Both great for us. I always had great buying, ownership and service experiences. I won't plug the dealership, but they're in Tempe, AZ. I would buy an EV Cadillac EXT in a heartbeat and...

    Who is Buying This Vehicle?

    All good! I'm guilty too! All the M stuff is spill over from the Tesla forum. And I am fat and lazy, just not a thief!:CWL:

    Who is Buying This Vehicle?

    So you're identifying me as a thief and lazy? That's no way to make friends!:like: My apologies if I offended your vehicle sensibilities...

    Who is Buying This Vehicle?

    I had a 2015 MS and moved to the 2017 MX (put my daughter in the M3). I, however, have always been a truck guy. I couldn't be more excited about the R1T. It will replace my MX and become my daily driver. I'm also excited to get back off-road again (it's been a few years), but in an EV. I'm...

    More charging joy (via VW software)- Rivian, please get this right!

    Like you, I've been driving Teslas since 2015, but haven't had the same luck with Superchargers - but I am incredibly thankful they exist and believe they are a strategic competitive advantage for Tesla. We go to Disneyland a couple times a year and drive over from Phoenix. I always encounter...

    More charging joy (via VW software)- Rivian, please get this right!

    Oh my goodness! I couldn't finish the video - it was too painful! I'm 95% confident that Rivian will get the charging to operate seamlessly and it's route planner will find the fastest charging and speed route available on a trip.

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

    I think the location makes a lot of sense in that it is centrally located within the Colorado Rocky Mountains. A 100 mile diameter circle around that location covers a lot of "Adventure" territory.

    How much would you invest in a Rivian IPO?

    I'm probably dating myself a bit, but I think in round lots, so I'd want 100 or 200 shares if it wasn't priced too aggressively.

    Report: Rivian Aims for IPO This Year

    I'm excited about the prospects and discussed Rivian with my broker months ago. While difficult for us little guys, he's going to try to get me in on the IPO. If not, I'll buy a few shares when it is publicly available.

    Which furry friend will be riding in your Rivian?

    My daughters... they're going to kill me when I tell them what I posted.

    Arizona pre-orders

    This is great news! I'm excited to see a DCFC in the Show Low/Pinetop area! And more excited to be able to top off in Globe and take the scenic route through the Salt River Canyon to get there!

    New Tesla Model S/X

    I'm sorry, but I have no idea. That's part of the reason why I stayed with the Gen 2 units - one less thing for me to try to figure out.

    New Tesla Model S/X

    I installed three Gen 2 Tesla HPWC to a(n) 100 amp circuit in my garage and bought a Tesla to J1772 adaptor for my yet to be produced R1T.

    Anyone have reservation for competitor EV? (Cybertruck, Lordstown Endurance, Atlis, Hummer, etc.)

    I had a CT reservation, but I let it go. New model roll outs for Tesla are notoriously problematic and their maintenance division is just overwhelmed (at least in the Phoenix Metro area). I don't know why I think the Rivian will come out any better, but here I go...
