RIVIAN Electric Adventure Vehicles WebSite This coming LA auto show we will be introduced to the world's first electric adventure vehicles. November 30th to December 9th at the LA Auto Show you will be able to see their Pickup Truck and SUV. The company's tagline is to explore the planet and charge deeper into the world farther and deeper than ever before by building electric vehicles that allow you to explore be it a big or small adventure. RIVIAN electric adventure vehicles will reimagine the truck and SUV with offering the following: Up to a 400+ mile range per charge Sub 3 seconds zero to 60 Superior capability on and off road RIVIAN has engineered their skateboard platform to handle the city or the summit, rain or shine by leveraging the laws of physics. To quote their website, expect superior handling on anything you might call a road with their Dynamic Roll Control. Superior Air Suspension to assist with getting over, around under, etcl the obstacles in the road. Final part of this is the smooth, quiet, impeccable manners, on road and off of the pure electric propulsion system. RIVIAN secured funding and took over the former Mitsubishi plant in Normal, Illinois where full production of their truck and SUV will begin in 2019 and rolling off the assembly line for sale by 2020. You can watch Bloomberg interview with the CEO and founder of RIVIAN here: RIVIAN CEO-Founder Interview R.J. Scaringe, founder and ceo is focused on the auto industry and Tesla by offering a product that is not offered by any other company. The interview brings up how EV companies have come and go and asks why they think they will survive and succeed where others have not. Very good interview. I like him much better than Musk. RIVIAN Truck Teaser RIVIAN SUV image from the video RIVIAN battery packs Rivian is also looking at additional ways to use their technology outside the auto industry and has stated they will have some exciting announcements in the near future of where you can find RIVIAN products. Based on watching the videos and going over their news section off their website, I would not be surprised to see home battery backup systems tied to solar or wind as well as the CEO says use in consumer electronics. The four arrows in their directional logo symbolize the values and behaviors that inform every decision they make. The two outer arrows express their mission to make the world a better place through innovation and adventure. The two inner arrows represent their core desire to be inspiring and inviting to all. Quote: This is more than a logo - it's our promise to always point you in the right direction.
