    Personally, I am waiting to see if the Rivian and Bollinger variants manage to get off the ground. They would make a great work vehicle.

    Apparently Rivian is far enough off the ground that it is now offering camp accessories for its vehicles -

    Would be better if they concentrated on the vehicle at this point in time IMO...

    As far as I know, the pull-out camping drawers/kitchenette, were a proof-of-concept that they produced at the last minute (so they had a talking point) before going to a large camping/trade show. It was to demonstrate what Rivian (or owners) might do in the future to fitout their vehicles for offroading/camping, and isn't a prototype or even slated for production as yet. Having said that, it worked pretty well for being pretty much slapped together!

    So just because you donít like him, you dismiss the whole premise of the video? A $53,000 EV that is worth scrap value after 7 years. Like him or not, that is quite concerning IMO and the OEMís donít need bad press like this while trying to roll out EVís - would have been smarter to just replace the battery and keep quiet IMO.

    I wonder if the owner told John that Nissan, some time back, dropped the price to $9,000 - according to a thread on the Whirlpool forum.

    He didn't no. But that's still as much as the vehicle is worth. Is there some question as to if the battery warranty still applied but isn't being honored? Not sure on that one though. IMO it shows how far we have to go to make EV's viable long term.

    Don't flame me, I like the tech and would own one but I'm also practical.
