Should also consider that Rivian batteries will likely be recycled.
Not only this, but include that those batteries not getting recycled are being used as storage for larger systems after they're reached their vehicle use cycle.
Regarding price point, many of us are not rich, heck not even well off. I, for one, am just underneath "well off", but I do know how to save up money to the point of being able to buy such high priced items. Despite the fact that this will indeed be my first premium vehicle, I will most definitely be looking into all the price breaks and incentives my state (or any other) provides, to the point that I *will* travel to another state and buy it there if the incentives to purchase it there is more lucrative than Florida's incentives are.
