Announcing our new "CLUBS" section where you can join or create a Rivian club or group! You can use this new feature to conveniently plan and discuss local events, gatherings or other club/group related topics.
So we encourage you to join (or start) special-interest and regional-based Rivian clubs at: https://www.rivianforums.com/forum/group-categories/clubs-groups.1/
Your politicians have destroyed your city. It used to be one of the greatest cities in the world. Now I will only go there if forced.I live in SF and will likely never use this location but applaud the decision to install it anyway. I am fortunate enough to have a charger at home. Many people in the city don’t have that luxury.
Take a look at PlugShare and you will see only 5 locations with speeds of >150kw within the city limits. That’s pretty meager for a city of 815k people. In addition to serving those without charging at home this is a needed amenity for visitors who continue to travel to SF despite the well publicized problems with crime and homelessness.
Reddit is the worst. Mods that get off on controlling their little kingdoms have ruined the site completely. I'm done with it.Even with "monitoring and security", how will they prevent this location from getting trashed or overrun by homeless people?
Edit : posted the same question on Reddit, and the comment was summarily deleted by the Reddit mods (most of whom are on here as well). I guess we'll just have to revisit this once it gets running and is on Plugshare to see real customer feedback. Believe me, I want more locations like this, but securing will be costly.
I'm sure EA agrees with you. In fact all of charging business do.I like the idea but would prefer to see it outside of a city, near multiple interstates, and a handful of pull though stations.
I get that SF and California have a ton of EVs but truly we need large scale travel EV charging centers on major roadways that aren't in the heart of a city.
Like bucees for EV charging. Take for example cities like Dallas, Chicago, Detroit, Denver, st Louis, DC. A hub like this somewhere near all of the connected interstates would make a lot more sense.
I can speak for the DFW area, there are nowhere near enough chargers, they are very spread out and typically only 2-4 stalls work per station and the output is never what's rated.
This excludes Tesla Superchargers of course.
Great feedback. Thanks for sharing. With all that black on your beautiful R1S you need to black out that satin/chrome-looking window trim!I stopped by last weekend to check it out. Most people were in their cars while they charged, but the lounge area was clean. I'd like it to last, but keeping it nice will definitely cost a lot. The location is nice because it's on the way to the bay bridge. I live in the east bay so it was really convenient to charge before heading home.
