    Consumer Reports Front Page

    Look what’s just arrived in the mail. I’ve been looking forward to the actual CR testing and am disappointed to find this is not it. The article, titled “The Next EVs” simply shows a blurb of some expected electric vehicles and some very basic info. Although the truck is prominently displayed...

    R1T vs R1S cargo area - how do you plan on utilizing it? Pros vs Cons?

    I know there are a few of you out there, myself included, contemplating which one to order - R1T or R1S. One of the things I’m mulling over is the cargo area of each. So what do we know or can infer at this point about each cargo area? R1T Bed dimensions: Width: 54.5”, Length (gate up /...

    Rivian R1T may have some competition from Tesla after all if this woman gets her way
