Yup, they just had another delay. I think you are comparing wait between front of the CT line with back of the Rivian line. I am not convinced back of CT line will get here sooner that Back of Rivian line even with production hell. With that said, I was not suggesting that I will get a Rivian. Not that there is anything wrong with it. In fact, I do like it a lot and if I find one in my driveway on my birthday, I would not say no but I don’t plan to pay for any truck over $50K. I was just saying once you see another EV truck on the road and know that they can be real, your expectation of some news about yours that gives you some assurance yours can be real too will increase and waiting in the dark becomes that much more difficult.Rivian will be slow in production. They will experience production hell just like Tesla did. You won't be able to get a Rivian any sooner that a CT.
If the Tax incentive passes as is and buying something soon vs waiting another 4 years to miss the boat could mean $12K of difference, that will add pressure to pick something that is available sooner (even if it is not a truck). Obviously for those with lower reservation numbers, this is not an issue.
I know this is just belly aching but since “a month or so“ is a large unit of time, there is nothing better to do but speculating over patent applications and belly aching. I just picked the one I am good at.
Spot on with the Analogy. The question remains, will the ugly neighbor that has been drooling over you for all those years more likely to make you happy or the super model that never knew or cared you existed.I really want [insert name of favorite super model] but she’s not available for a couple of years so I’ll marry my ugly neighbor.
