It looks to be long enough not to be pushed around by a trailer. The big questions would be whether it weighs enough itself to be stable and how well it brakes. And of course how much the range is diminished with a load.

With all that torque, big tires wouldn't present a problem for the motors either, but I suspect tire size would be pretty limited. The suspension doesn't look like it would lend itself all that well to a lift. It looks like their approach is to armor the bottom with skids and let you slide and bang over obstacles using whatever tires you can get to the ground for traction rather than letting the suspension flex for traction at all four wheels. I bet you'd be limited to the tire sizes shown on their concept vehicles.

If only it weren't so damned ugly. It looks like an old-style Cylon. I bet it says, "By your command!" when you put it in gear.
I specifically stated long distance. I assumed it would be capable of towing a decent load but range is required for me. If I tow to road America I donít want to stop every three hours for a 1hr picnic so it can recharge.

What was the thread title?
@stevesnj
I remember when you started your build thread before you had your car. Hope you get back on your feet financially soon.

New battery packs are stupidly expensive to replace.

I'm all for elec vehicles, but, how are the batteries holding up in cold weather, we don't really have cold weather here so I have no real experience with that.

Tough to be sure, the vehicle isn't even in production yet and they're not releasing too many details. I just like the idea of 400 mile range, silly fast, quiet on the road and room for all the toys. I don't need a pickup for work stuff but they do make it easier to move mt bikes and other large outdoor gear.

The RIVIAN is a future choice because of it's off road capability, range, storage, and no ICE engine. Being an off roader and Toyota Land Cruiser owner you won't understand the appeal if you don't understand off roading/overlanding. RIVIAN is working with 3rd party companies for suspension and armour for their line. It's not a definite but just a choice.

I want a Bollinger. Portal axles FTMFW. Also 5201lbs of payload. You could carry 300 gallons of water, a rooftop tent, food for a month, 1kWh of solar panels (3 sunpower x series), and the whole family of 4. Drive 200 miles into the middle of nowhere. Hang out while you charge the 120kWh battery at 4+kWh/day. Then drive back.

Yep, same here on both counts. I knew the name but hadn't seen one. Interesting but ugly is about how I would describe it.
