    R1S Road Report: Chicago to Northern Michigan

    Over the weekend I took my first longer road trip with my R1S, from Chicago to Northern Michigan. It's about a 375-mile one way trip. The R1S performed flawlessly and charging was a breeze (after a slight EA hiccup in Cadillac, MI). I used a mixture of All Purpose and Conserve. Nov 4: Left...

    UPDATED RANT: Rivian Service Centers are a poorly managed drain on the company

    I have a cold and feel grouchy. Rivian Service Centers waste precious capital and customer goodwill. They rent vehicles for customers when their R1s are in the shop for way too long, and they are inefficient and communicate poorly leading to customer aggravation and burnout. Took my R1S in to...

    CFO at Global Automotive Summit - “Rivian RT”?

    Tesla to add Apple Music, hopefully Rivian follows suit

    While not full CarPlay, adding Apple Music would be enough to satisfy me. I'm fully invested in the Apple services and devices ecosystem, so not wasn't going to be using the onboard Spotify. I really hope Rivian considers doing the same here...

    R1S Design Appreciation - Chonky Goodness

    I just love this thing. Personally I find the design of most new cars these days to be over stated and gaudy. Everything looks like it was designed by a marketing committee instead of artists. But not the R1S. It's so chonky while also being modern. I friggin' can't wait to get mine (1H23)...
