    So the direct sales bill did not make Tuesday's hearing. Suprise, there's the legislative process for ya. On the bright side, that means I should be able toake the hearing *when* they schedule the bill, so I'll get to participate & hopefully meet some of you in person. Side note - @electruck...

    I seem to be having a problem with jitter, but hopefully that's just the coffee.

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

    Per mile is the most fair way to do it, possibly with a factor based on vehicle weight, because those are the primary factors on road wear. The problem is that's more complex & less predictable than a flat fee based on averages. DMV did a study & the $100 cited in @Jsidell 's email is what...

    2nd/3rd Row Questions

    1) We don't know for sure yet on control, but the 3rd row vents are beside each seat in the C pillar. 2) Yes, that screen on the back of the front console has 2nd row (at least) climate controls. Not sure about heated seat controls...could be on that screen, possibly a hard button somewhere, or...

    R1T cannot be confirmed, but the hearing where Rivian needs support is on Tuesday. Hearing time TBD, but I believe it will be scheduled tomorrow.

    Potential place in production/delivery line!

    Another Austinite! BTW, Rivian is bringing an R1T to Austin for lege show & tell, hopefully to help with the direct sales effort. See my post here & I know they would appreciate preorder holder support if you can swing by next Mon/Tues...

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

    Sorry y'all, post edited...I got out over my skis a bit. There's a very important hearing this coming Tuesday in Austin. It would be a big help if the Rivian community could come out to show support at the hearing. Time should be finalized tomorrow & I'll post more details then.

    Dcbel Charger=Home DC and V2H

    1) If used only for emergencies, chances of any damage are slim. Even if used more frequently at lower loads, I doubt any harm would be done...likely less than driving. 2) Personally, I will keep at least one ICE vehicle. But if there was an area with fast chargers online, you could go...

    Depreciation Thoughts

    I'm also in this for the long run. I'm willing to pay to have this vehicle & performance now, as well as help a company that I like & believe will be successful in the long term. I might be tempted to upgrade at the next big tech leap, either in batteries or autonomous driving, but I think...

    Dcbel Charger=Home DC and V2H

    I'm happy to see more entrants with V2H/V2G capability. I believe that Rivian has a plan here, and I will wait to see what they announce before making my EVSE decision. It's still not clear whether they will allow/support this for the vehicles themselves, but we do know the vehicles can...

    Real world Off Roading Pros/Cons

    Air+hydraulic system is going to be interesting. It may not have as much travel, but should be highly adjustable to negate the need for reservoir shocks. The hydraulic damping system is basically one giant reservoir with multiple valves for potentially even more control. Question to me is the...

    Real Photos & Videos

    Kneel mode is definitely meant for easy entry & exit, and I think it should be sufficient for most, if not all. However, I also wouldn't be surprised to see a Rivian or aftermarket option.

    We need 277 volt AC compatible charging. Really.

    Nothing, the bottleneck is the onboard charger as you stated.
