This is exciting.  I actually didn't know about the R1T pickup.  I thought the R1S was sweet-looking though.

The story on CNBC said we beat Tesla, Ford and Chevy to the EV pickup market.

Did Ford release that Lightning F150 thing or is that still waiting?  I feel like I have seen those commercials for awhile now.

I don’t think they’ve produced any yet, I might be wrong though.

Lightning production doesn't start until next spring, at best.

Wow.  No electric pickups yet except for Rivian and I don't think I've seen an SUV that is the size of the R1S.  Tesla made a very small SUV thing that looks nothing like the R1S so that would be TWO vehicles that Rivian released first... if the R1S is coming out soon.  B72, any idea when the R1S will be in production?

 

 

Lightning production doesn't start until next spring, at best.

They've been advertising the crap out of that thing.  I know I asked B72 this before but I wonder if Rivian had the forethought to build a battery production plant on their campus so that they don't have to wait in line for batteries along with all of the other EV manufacturers.  If so, they could really get a head start on everyone else.  This will be fun to watch.
