Rivian Electric 1/2 ton pickup. Winter testing. Interesting article.

Interesting read on the Rivian EV 1/2 ton.

So far this is the only electric vehicle i would entertain owning. It looks good and if it does the job as needed i would buy one and/or ask for one at work.

Agree. I couldn't picture myself in a Cybertruck. Too weird.

The hub motor design might.be rivians defining moat. Definetly makes for some cool maneuvering capability like the tank turn.

Electric vehicle design is different and Tesla surely has a head start. Lordstown is having a few issues, but the EV field is growing and any activity seems to make the news. https://jalopnik.com/lordstown-motor...the-1846350243

That is one crispy truck. Gives the saying “smokin hot” a whole new meaning. .

Cheers.

I suppose fire departments have to have training for the electric vehicle fires.

Yep. I know our local department did that 6 years ago. Hydrogen as well although there are very few hydrogen vehicles in these parts. I suspect all departments have.

Tesla's model 3's have a emergency high voltage battery disconnect under the front hood in case of accidents.

Think most fire departments in big EV states will have some EV fire fighting training.
