Pretty cool! Says they can service 80% of all error codes with the equipment on the van. Can do wheel balancing and vehicle to vehicle charging.

Cool! Saw one for the first time at the South SF SC a couple weeks ago. Looking forward seeing them roll down the street.

What do we think they mean with " vehicle to vehicle charging "?

It means what it says in the article. They have a 240V outlet. Plug in a charger and hey presto, vehicle to vehicle charging.

Obviously they intend to use these vans to charge our Rivians while in motion on road trips to keep us from having to stop and charge.

Rivian demonstrated being able to do CCS to CCS during the filming in The Long Way Up years ago. I imagine they have the capability to do it now but it's probably complicated and still involved expensive hardware.

It’s part of the CCS standard, isn’t it?

presumably it is indeed cheaper/ simpler to use a 240V outlet and mobile charger.

It wasn't technically at the time.

80% of all possible error codes or 80% of all error codes being produced? Biiiiig difference.

It's actually 80% of all labor codes...
