@MReda and I have already addressed the new EV trucks in TX and the South in a thread many, many months ago...we’re all represented here...it’s all good...

The R1T isn't a work truck - plenty of people that use their trucks for work have pointed this out. It is an adventure vehicle, and it certainly makes sense to prioritize the most adventure-laden areas of the US for their early deliveries. In case you weren't aware, every adventure-inclined vehicle on the market (Tacomas, Jeeps, Outbacks, etc) lists the PNW as their best-selling US market.

Also, it's super easy to sit behind a keyboard and be an internet tough guy calling others names. Grow the fuck up.
Also very expensive. That matters.

Ok, here we go. The implicit bias against the PNW and the southerners!

Tell you what…I’ve never met a southerner who let themselves get ignored. Upon attempt, the rebuttal sentence starts off with a stern “See what we have here” or a “Ya’ll better recognize…”.

This...this is how I know this "survey" is trash...

This isn't even a thing yet and it impressed you how??
Since they're sharing the same basic shell, perhaps the pollsters should have simply consolidated Chevy and Lordstown into one entry to tie the CyberTruck for second place: "24% Chevrolord Endurado".

This is because Rivians marketing department should be fired. Let's focus truck marketing on soy boys from the Pacific northwest. Congrats you sold 40,000 trucks to them while ignoring the millions of farmers and southerners.
Rivian already has more orders than it can fulfill in a reasonable amount of time.

I'm sure they planning on word of mouth advertising at least at first so they can manage the number of orders while they grow.

Tesla doesn't really advertise either.

Yeah it makes no sense to spend money on wider brand awareness before their first factory can really start cranking 'em out in a year or two when word of mouth will do a ton of that for free while they're still getting up to speed. I'd say they've solved any money problems they might have had and then some. Now their biggest challenge is competing for battery and parts supply. I'm still amazed at how fast they started moving in the last 12 months. Did not expect the IPO or international moves to come up this soon.

Btw the Tesla model may be better. They have back orders for and years.

I’ve been following Rivian since late 2018 and every single person I’ve talked to about the company had not heard of it. So, these results are not surprising to me at all. I’ve probably sent a few hundred people to their website, raving about what I felt was going to be a successful company.

Without commercials and billboards, I can understand it not being in the mainstream. It makes their capital earnings all the more impressive.

Atlis, which scored equally, has yet to make $10 million, and technically has no product. I mean they’re developing the batteries at this stage, despite having been founded in 2016. So, maybe they are publicly doing what Rivian was doing incognito for so long. That’s the part that surprises, these companies aren’t even comparable.
