    Lincoln's Aviator - the SUV the R1S needs to Beat?

    At this point in the technology curve, I'm either going to buy an ev or wait until they come down in price. I was originally going to try to wait until 2025, but the R1s made me change my mind.

    GM's Battery Blitz: Ultium Batteries As the Skateboard of Battery Packs?

    Tesla isn't making batteries on their own, they have partners. Panasonic in the U.S. and LG Chem and Catl in China. G.M. is working with LG Chem. All of the companies are doing research on the composition of the batteries (both car companies and battery companies). I am very interested in...

    Rough Calculation of Rivian Orders, Delivery Times

    The whole corona virus thing has thrown a real monkey wrench into predicting when production will start. I was hoping that they were actually hoping to start production much earlier than December, but December was when they were certain they could start. So, they might not be delayed as much...

    Possible Tax Credit Loss

    I think that the Rivian will probably start producing their third vehicle before the federal tax credit runs out. Its hard to tell, since we don't really know how many preorders they have. I would expect they will announce a third car after they are producing the R1S & R1T in significant volumes...
