They also stuck with June deliveries right up until the May 27th email where they announced/buried a one month delay in a larger announcement.I mean it does say “this month’s launch…” so at least they are currently sticking with that.
Lucid has a more sophisticated publicity strategy and a sales group that is much easier to reach and more communicative than Rivian's. However, I'm just as frustrated by the prolonged delays in getting my Lucid Air as I am in getting my Rivian R1S.. . . what I don't get is why their communication strategy is so poor.
Game the hell out of it they will. You can play be the rules . What do you think the California route 1 edition Mach-E was made? The right range, the right price, to get all CA credits.Which tax credit? If you’re talking about the proposed US federal legislation, it’s really unrealistic to think anybody at Rivian has any idea how the final credit will work. It is honestly unlikely to pass at all anyway, but even if it does, it could have provisions that specifically address what has to be included in the relevant “MSRP”. If the threshold is $80k, Congress likely doesn’t want a company to game the hell out of it by selling a car for $79,999 that has software limited range of 100 miles but that can be upgraded to 300 miles for the low price of $100 after vehicle purchase. Details like how that will work are not even in serious discussion in Congress, so Rivian has no way to know what will happen.
My point was that there's no way for anybody to know what restrictions might exist in a hypothetical piece of legislation or in the corresponding regulations. It'd be irresponsible for Rivian to tell a customer that X configuration will get a tax credit under a set of rules that aren't currently the law and that aren't even drafted with sufficient detail to become a law.Game the hell out of it they will.
