How about some 'murica love for that Rivian. Despite the brits in the video, that thing was designed and is being manufactured in good ole U S of A… Illinois to be specific.
I thought the thing was still too overpriced, but the base price of the Truck is $61k, and the SUV is $65k, before federal tax credit. That puts it in the wheelhouse of Ford and Toyota trucks, especially when you figure out how much cheaper it will be to operate.
Also, the ingenuity of the design… stick around and watch the truck tour. Its so effing practical… youtube guy was speechless. This thing deserves to sell like Model Ts did if it delivers on everything they described. Just incredible. Gotta salute the home grown ingenuity.
