Thanks for sharing this article. It further confirms the conversations I had with RJ back at the Outlander West Expo in Flagstaff last year. Rivian's culture is one of purpose and all employees are focused on the success of the company. Everyone has a voice which is very cool. My hope is they do not lose that over time as they grow larger. I think I shared in previous comments that my wife was on the fence with Rivian before meeting RJ, where we learned more about the goals they had from the start. The simple fact of being able to re-purpose the batteries (secondary use he called it) when the car expires, as one truck can power up to five homes, hence their donations of the prototype vehicle batteries to Puerto Rico after the huricane.

Cool company, and I am looking forward to the R1S/R1T hitting production and ultimately delivery to us...

Behind the partition there are what looks like two prototype bodies, each with clam shell doors. I'm curious if this is an early prototype for a smaller bodied truck.
