    Rivian chooses Samsung for its first-gen battery supplier

    I don't want to cause any distress, but I'm very doubtful Rivian will have Samsung's SDI gen5 batteries, if they plan on keeping their battery pack design the same with 21700 cells. It seems like Gen 5 cells are for stack method cells, aka square cells and not jelly roll aka cylindrical cells...

    EVs, regen and rusty brakes

    My concern comes from seized brakes twice with a nissan leaf in 6 years and recommandation from Tesla to get brake cleans every year in Québec for that specific problem with evs. I just had mine done yesterday, as they were dragging.

    EVs, regen and rusty brakes

    They should have good stopping power. The concern do remain valid however as caliper pins and brake pads contact regions with the caliper will become dirty, rust and get stuck if not used, unless brembo have special alloys.

    EVs, regen and rusty brakes

    Yes. Especially with evs with very strong regen that doesn't require much braking. Again, it applies to countries like Canada, not to California.

    EVs, regen and rusty brakes

    Yes, but instead of me taking time to go out of my way to do it safely every day or so, I hope there is a way to do it 2.0.

    EVs, regen and rusty brakes

    Me... litterally 2 minutes ago... Honey, I'll be back in two minutes, I just need to put the car on creep mode. No, don't stop the movie, it will be quick. Thanks, I forgot about creep mode. I doubt it will correct everything, but this should certainly help.

    EVs, regen and rusty brakes

    I'm wondering if Rivian has thought of a way to mitigate rusty/seizing brakes. Regen is both a blessing for efficiency and a curse for brakes, especially in winter with snow, salt, heated garage and short driving distances. On my model 3 it's bad... on my Nissan Leaf, it is a nightmare... VW...

    Home charger location: what would you do?

    Option 1. Albeit less convenient, you don't need to charge everyday anyway. It will also allow you to precondition your battery more easily prior to a longer trip (covered). Is level 1 available at option 2? If yes, you could charge in both locations.

    Rivian Battery Poll - VOTE HERE

    Exactly. I did a few tries with the alpha version of abetterrouteplanner and the larger battery would maybe save me half an hour for 1 or 2 trips per year. I can live with that and save myself 10k$. The rest of the year, I'm not doing a lot of mileage per day. Those errands, with the 300 miles...

    The modem sound was the moment when I realized I got fooled... That being said... if it was true... does that mean that if you answer a call while driving, your car will become unresponsive? ;)

    Illinios Dealers Sue Rivian

    This argument would be valid if Rivian sold first through dealership and then started to sell direct. Reality: They have a better product than what dealers can sell... So the dealership just wants a piece of it.
