    Hmmm, the Engel would fit under the bonnet. In fact you could make the whole area up front a fridge...

    Do we know what sort of price point they are aiming at yet?

    US $72,500 . for the Rivian

    Bollinger B1 is US$60,000 for the 60kwh model or $68,000 for the 100kwh model . Battery prices are falling though.

    So still both well over $100K here. Well maybe I can buy a used one in about 20 years...

    I keep hearing battery prices are falling, but all EV's are still way out of the average punters price range still - even the new Hyundai Ioniq is $20K more than it's ICE equivalent and around $45K (plus $2K if you want a hardwired 7KW charger in your garage) and this is 'Australia's cheapest EV'. That's still more than I've ever spent or could afford for a vehicle - and as pointed out by more than one person, they are doing away with an engine and gearbox, so batteries must still be very expensive - they would need to come down in price by orders of magnitude I think - here's hoping...
