    Rivian trademarks TANK TURN! Now with official video.

    the song is a pretty popular meme this year. There are dozens and dozens of examples on Youtube.

    Rivian RT1 / R1S will be delivered with 80-90% charge

    Yep. I’m in the same boat with my Ford. Considering Apple Music works on Amazon devices already, I would bet it will eventually in my Rivian. Audible will surely be a first-class citizen as well. Kinda sad that I might have to play my Podcasts through regular Bluetooth and control it on my...

    Regen Braking for Beginners.... I have questions

    Of note, there was a fat button on the rudimentary center control stack for the Long Way Up trucks that was labeled “one-pedal mode” or something to that effect. They have definitely been thinking about this for a very long time.

    Off Roading Question:

    That’s going to be a pretty big market, soon. Light bars that are easily removable for the aero.

    Regen Braking for Beginners.... I have questions

    SLC to Park City is climbing what’s probably the second most treacherous mountain pass with an interstate. I-80 through Parley’s Canyon is a huge climb on the way up, I’m surprised it’s not more tbh. No vehicle I’ve ever driven could maintain a steady 79mph higher than like 3rd gear.

    The current State of charging in the US

    Every single new public building in Quebec has some EV charging available in its parking. New hotel next to my house has 20 level 2 charge points available in its parking garage, I’m sure they will add tons more as it becomes necessary. It’s not a huge expense at all, relatively speaking, and...

    Front License Plates

    All my life in Utah we never got tickets for a lack of a front plate. As far as I know it’s not a stoppable offense. If they already have you stopped for something else, they will ticket you, but they can’t stop you just for that.

    Regen Braking for Beginners.... I have questions

    Yup. I tried to convince my wife to go for a model 3 but she drove our friends’ and she hated the jerky regen. I tried to tell her “it’s configurable” and it is to a point, but I dunno that she could ever get used to it. It turned her off Tesla forever, prolly. Maybe that just means I’ll have...

    Regen Braking for Beginners.... I have questions

    Prius has been doing blended brakes for a decade. Isn’t it configurable in Teslas as well? It seems crazy to me that they’d entirely separate the two systems. Prius (and other hybrid/EVs) have an enormous advantage when it comes to braking, the brakes on the Prius are undersized because it...

    Canadian Pricing - Will it be adjusted?

    This is all true, but isn’t something we see replicated across the rest of the car market. Some cars are cheaper in Canada than in the USA. Apple has a similar problem where they can set a price for a product and then the exchange rate gets more favorable and they could adjust it down, but...

    Canadian Pricing - Will it be adjusted?

    Mostly. They may adjust the price up above the exchange rate to cover risk in foreign currency, tariffs, or whatever else. In reality the biggest issue is they will charge what Canadians will pay. If Canadians are willing to pay more than Americans for a truck, then they’ll charge more. Overall...

    Trade-ins?

    Most states expect the sales tax at registration time, so wherever you’re getting the plates.

    Did I read this right? Pre-orders to begin near Thanksgiving?

    I’m excited to see this thread pop up and find out that initial contact was made via email, for all of you that are posting about no longer screening your calls 😏

    Trade-ins?

    It’s true, a guy I work with has seen his Ram increase to $5k more than he paid for it a year ago. However, if you’re like me with a vehicle that is not at all in demand, you won’t have seen much of an increase.

    How many Utahans out there?

    The Mexican food is probably the thing I miss the most. And the American fast food. 😩

    Off Roading Question:

    it’s true, but there are obstacles that get you off all 4 wheels and it would be cool 😎

    What will you name your Rivian?

    Ooooh, I’ll have to seriously consider this one

    Buying high end EV from start up

    They surely pay several “social media specialists” and I guarantee you they hang out in Facebook groups and forums like these as part of their jobs.

    Off Roading Question:

    I would love to see some video of the R1S doing some of the easier runs out in Moab, just for the fun of it. There’s plenty of trail running to be had out there too, but tackling some of the easier obstacles would be pretty sweet. Lots of stuff out there looks like it should be easy, but is...

    How many Utahans out there?

    My delivery address is currently in Herriman, even though I live in Quebec. I’m not sure where we’ll be living when it actually comes time to take delivery.
