Saw a Rivian in the wild today

The guy was using the included compressor to pump up a tire that had caught a nail. Looked very cool, kinda squared off, bigger than I imagined. He said he had waited three years for it. Olive green.

I should swing by the Seattle dealership next time in down in SODO.

I hope Rivian survives.

From the WSJ.

“At Rivian RIVN -5.48% Automotive Inc.’s factory in Normal, Ill., life is anything but.

Car factories around the world routinely churn out models around the clock. About eight months after production on Rivian’s electric trucks started, executives recently marked a milestone in uninterrupted work days: The company’s plant ran at full speed for an entire 10-hour work shift for the first time.”



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Saw one out in NM back in April.
They are going to be building a new Rivian plant just outside Atlanta, soon.
I think they have gotten final approval from all the different entities that needed to sign off on it.

My R1S is scheduled for delivery "First half of 2023."

Also have a Lucid Air Touring on reserve.

Yet to see either live.

I heard there was a lot of NIMBY resistance to that one.

Quite like Rivian as well; hopefully they'll eventually make a smaller version (similar to the Nissan King Cab (b'f it became the Frontier) I had in my college years).

I like when new designs break the mold a bit and do something different. Case in point, Canoo. Not everyone's cup of tea but I dig it. [www.canoo.com]

And I'm still holding out hope that VW will bring back the Beetle as an EV and call it the Lightning Bug.

Probably fall afoul of the F-150 Lightning.

Love the idea, though!

Yep, there was, but I am sure enough palms were well greased to get it done.
