    Yup. And low volume vehicles may never get tested by NHTSA or IIHS. https://www.consumerreports.org/car-safety/some-cars-will-never-be-crash-tested-crash-test-ratings/

    Chicago Tribune Article With Great Factory Updates and Photos!

    I can't provide you with a paint code notarized by RJ but, yes, that is absolutely 100% Forest Green. This is the same color we've seen ever since the 2018 debut.

    Q&A session with a Rivian Guide

    @DucRider was simply commenting on being at fault for hitting a pedestrian regardless of the circumstances. Tampering however has the potential to change who pays. If the AVAS was functioning, your insurance would likely cover it as any other accident. If the AVAS was intentionally disabled...

    Q&A session with a Rivian Guide

    If you run over my wife and her Seeing Eye Dog because they can't hear you coming because you tampered with a safety device, you can bet your butt I will take every dollar you have and then some in court.

    I think you are a lot closer to reality than most people have been expecting.

    Q&A session with a Rivian Guide

    Perhaps something like what Volvo offers: And 2nd row captains chairs is all but guaranteed to be a post-LE offering (if it is offered at all).

    Interesting. Unless I'm missing something, that seems like a shortsighted approach. Sure, that replaces the revenue lost due to the adoption of more energy efficient vehicles but it also serves to discourage the use of said vehicles hence encouraging people to retain older more polluting...

    Texas EV Direct Sales Hearing Next Week. Come Show Your Support!

    Not only do I not want ICE/BEV/PHEV handled differently but it also doesn't make sense to differ per manufacturer - it would add tremendous complexity for the govt having to interface with so many different entities. It would also add a needless burden to the manufacturers, especially with as...

    Texas EV Direct Sales Hearing Next Week. Come Show Your Support!

    Unfortunately that's far too big of a leap for government to tackle as the next step and it wouldn't even work for many of the vehicles on the road (consider how many older and commercial vehicles are on the road without the necessary in-car tech to support this).

    Texas EV Direct Sales Hearing Next Week. Come Show Your Support!

    I agree that moving to a per mile fee is more complex to implement which is why I'm open to other alternatives. However, I do not agree with applying a flat fee to EVs only while still taxing ICE vehicles per gallon of gas. If flat fees are appropriate for EVs, they are appropriate for all...

    Drifting slightly OT here but... the country (including Texas) needs to move past treating EVs as something special and come up with a funding mechanism that is applied the same for all means of propulsion. Whether that be a flat fee, a mileage based fee, a property tax on vehicles, etc the...

    Video: Blue R1S Spotted on Highway

    It's the same blue they've been showing for well over a year and, yes, it's "the final Rivian blue".

    Depreciation Thoughts

    Few vehicles can be considered investments so spending $75k on a vehicle is rarely a wise use of money. there are cheaper ways to get from A-B and still be able to haul things, go offroad, etc. We spend that much on a vehicle because we want to and because we can but not because it's the best...

    Rivian chooses Samsung for its first-gen battery supplier

    I have to wonder if the launch timing is right for the R1 to leverage SDI's Gen 5 battery tech out of the gate given that it was expected to go into production the second half of 2021. I'm thinking it may still be a little too early for that. Perhaps Gen 5 batteries are the big variable for the...
