    Let's talk about charging on long distance travel?

    C has absolutely nothing to do with the ampere-hour rating of the battery. Nothing you said changes that fact.

    Let's talk about charging on long distance travel?

    That doesn't change the ampere hour rating of the battery. If you discharge the battery a 3C you get 690 amps for 20 minutes which is the exact same thing as 230Ah.

    Let's talk about charging on long distance travel?

    We already new what C was. But now that DunRider told you what it was, you are now trying to explain it back to us? You said "C is the capacity of the battery in ampere hours." Which is 100% categorically wrong. A 100kWH battery can have a C rating of 1. A 50Wh battery can have a C rating...

    Let's talk about charging on long distance travel?

    This is absolutely correct. C is definitely NOT the capacity of the battery in units of ampere-hours.

    R1S flat towing behind an RV?

    Actually, it would be free energy. Instead of using the friction brakes of the towing vehicle, you could use the Rivian regen braking to slow both vehicles and recharge the battery for free. You could almost recharge completely coming down something like the Ike.

    Towing Airstream Classic

    Full width of 8.5 ft and full height of 13.5 feet at 11,000 pounds. I did the math to see if I could use a Rivian to tow a light weight tiny home. The range at 55mph is 103 miles with the 180kWh battery. If you had something in which the height was reduced to half, you would get around 146...

    Towing Airstream Classic

    The weight of the trailer has a much smaller impact on range than its size. At 55mph, the aerodynamic drag of a large trailer uses about 3 times the energy compared to the rilling resistance. At 70mph drag is 4.5 times greater.

    Rivian R2R Rally Inspired Crossover-Wagon Details / Specs Rumored

    If they can get a 6,000 pound tow rating out of the rally car, plus a 30 amp plug in for an RV, I would be sold.

    Rivian R2R Rally Inspired Crossover-Wagon Details / Specs Rumored

    What to do? I think the Rally car is more my style. Should I wait for it, or get the Truck when it becomes available. What a first world problem!

    And the Tragicomedy Obvious Vaporware Award Goes To... Triton Model H

    200kWh battery and 700 mile range is 285 watts per mile which is almost the same as a Tesla Model 3 AWD (283). If they had some realistic numbers, they might fool more people.

    Observations from preproduction Rivian R1T test vehicle video

    This is for a Hyundai with a matte finish. I should probably mention I tend to wash my car twice a year. "Use an alcohol-based window cleaner, or even just a 50/50 mix of alcohol and deionized water to spot clean pesky bug guts (a matte paint cleaner works too). Spray the spot and wet your...

    Observations from preproduction Rivian R1T test vehicle video

    Flat colors look awesome, but the work needed to keep them looking good is too much of a pain for me.

    Observations from preproduction Rivian R1T test vehicle video

    What I noticed was how low the truck is in the 2nd photo. I wonder if that is how low it can get on the highway.

    EV Adventure Van

    Yes, the first videos I saw of the F150 EV looked like they simply used the old truck and added on the electrics. You can see in this video that everything looks like a regular F150.

    Let's talk about charging on long distance travel?

    Yes, I think gas stations won't likely put them in because they make more money from the store sales than the fuel. They want turnover more than anything. I think the businesses that should put them in are restaurants or shopping malls. If someone is going to charge for an hour, then they can...
