I kinda like the R3X. Reminds me of the Integrale EVO. I can't see the rear design staying that way, at least for the US with its brake light regulations. Assuming they're going to add some lights into the bumper for the actual brake lights here.

I might consider a Rivian in the future if they ever decide to lose the C3PO face.

Love how everyone goes nuts at 26:04 for the "flipper glass" like it is something unique.

Good looking designs. Shame they're comically large.

Everything on an electric car seems like its some unique evolutionary thing for some reason.....

Even if they've been done before already.

Arent these guys bleeding money? How can they put these models out? Unless im thinking Lucid......

One way to stop bleeding money is by increasing your market share. You increase your market share by either changing how you market or by changing what you market. The latter takes more effort but has a bigger payoff if successful.

I think Lucid is the most unprofitable (compared to Rivian and Tesla )at the moment, mostly due to slower production than expected. The car is pretty nice though. Not sure how anyone would want a Model S if they could afford an Air.

I've seen several Lucid's in person. IMO they photograph better than they actually are in person. In person they look like mid-90s GM sedans.

I'd take a Model S over a Lucid, and I would never buy a Tesla (because of the interior lack of design).

Rivian needs these smaller, less expensive models if they ever plan on surviving. Also, I realize it's their identifying feature, but they need to give up the goofy front end.

Some of the darker colors do look crappy in person I agree, but the light colors are much better for some reason. Interiors are pretty nice though, if a bit odd in places.

The R3/R3x is the first Rivian where I actually like the goofy headlights.

Lucids are the complete package. Superior build quality, superior technology, superior interior luxury and design. One can say they don't appreciate the exterior design, but to dismiss (over that) in favor of a Tesla seems like an overreaction. (Talking about vs Tesla, as they don't operate in the same marketplace as Rivian.)

Exterior primarily. Looks like a 1990's Chevy Lumina LTZ to me, with as slightly modern twist to it.
