Makes sense. They surely have bigger plans than strictly automobiles. Plenty of car companies at one time or another manufactured bicycles, and plenty of car manufacturers started out as something else.

Toyota : textiles
Mazda : cork wares
Lamborghini : tractors
Volvo : ball bearings

Would not surprise me in any way. I wonder if they'd buy an existing company (like cannondale).

I still think their other patent for a built in dryer is way more useful especially for those with dogs who take them to beaches etc. Can't wait for them to make that (if they do).

Please just focus on delivering vehicles with high QC.

Thank you.
I'm not sure why their designers would focus on QC/QA... seems like a poor use of their time.

Edit: Obviously teasing you a bit here, we all want great QC, but there are a lot of people who aren't involved with QC in any way at Rivian.

All good.

Except the after closing news that Rivian's COO departed in the first inning of production.

Soooo, I'll repeat. Focus on the core business.

Apparently, it was a planned retirement. He left a month ago or so, and it seems like it was a planned, staged, and foreseen event.
yeah, I just read that too. Interesting timing and approach to communication about it. Typical Rivian.

Rivian just needs to focus on getting their Amazon Delivery vans built & the R1T and R1S pre/orders BUILT and delivered first.

(Sorry - this adds nothing, but I cannot hear/read “ball bearings” and not think of Fletch)
