I will. Building your brand with low volume high-end designs while funding your efforts by making bank building fleets for the likes of Amazon sounds like a not-showing-interest-in-going-public-yet dream company to me. Rivian's target market isn't gigantic. Things could easily change after they get to their less expensive models though.Like I said, you can speculate all you want.
That’s what I’m talking about. Same thing but in Louisiana. We will probably build a platform that riders and sit on and shot off of. Also considering a thermal on the roof that we can remote control from the inside the cab for when it is cold . And yes, dark grey is my color too if it’s an option.Im going to use mine for Hog hunting in texas. I will be the trailblazer and will find the problem areas and weak spots. If it comes in Dark Gray.
I think they're answering a different question or, perhaps, it's a given to some, being that they're replacing an existing SUV. For example, I said I use my Yukon for road trips and to tow a boat. What I left out, since it wasn't asked, is that many of those road trips are to the snow, mountains and camping. I only combed through some of the responses but when I see someone replacing a 4Runner or a Subaru, I automatically envision them as outdoors(ish) people.This is obviously a very small sample, but with 8 responses logged into this thread, I count only 0.5 responses that say they're buying a Rivian for outdoor adventuring. I'm counting the wildlife photographers as the half vote. (The other half was for farming & off-roading, not adventuring.)
The other 7.5 responses are all over the place in terms of reasons why they're interested, but on and off road capabilities, performance, lower maintenance and fueling costs, lower carbon footprint, and a better value, defined in any number of ways, relative to an ICE vehicle are notable.
Perhaps Rivian should widen its target audience. Outdoor adventuring is only part of the appeal. I suspect Rivian already knows this, but once a marketing course is set, it's often difficult to re-calibrate. Yet, I believe a re-calibration will become necessary. The Amazon and Lincoln vehicles are obviously not for outdoor adventuring. The interest in a rally model is another indication. And our small sample of 8 responses.
