Maybe Rivian ditched them as the EPA range improvement was not material?Good work @EV Sportline, I'm considering taking the plunge to offset my Max Pack tears.
It's kinda crazy that given the decent range increase that Rivian chose not to bring the inserts into production.
For any unaware, the 20's had inserts prior to the configurator going live in Nov 2020.
Planes are buying fuel, so ROI really matters. I don't think anyone on planet is trying to extend range as a means to ROI that cost. People want to extend range for that purpose, not for 'saving' on charging costs.
But that's up to you, maybe ROI matters!
Will they extend range....absolutely. Can you offset the cost to extend range by way of what you save on the charge?! ha ha, I guess if you like. First I have ever heard anyone trying to make range savings offset charging costs!
yes, we have a prototype - i need to check on status!Would you consider making a sunshade for the R1s roof for the summer?
The Rivian prototype parts were carbon fiber, it's a cost decision for them I am sure. We looked at making our carbon fiber at first, but it was crazy expensive!Maybe Rivian ditched them as the EPA range improvement was not material?
Our design doesn't scratch the wheels. But, for those that want to take them on and off a lot, we made a simple PPF kit (clear paint protection film decals) that can be applied under our parts - the kit is optional.I've heard reports that the stock inserts scratch the rims. How do these mount and is there the same concern?
