Rivian - Electric Adventure Vehicle | Fully Charged

  • Опубликовано: 10 янв 2019
  • Automotive startups always need to be viewed with a little caution, but as Jonny Smith discovers, Rivian have presented a very convincing launch. A large SUV and pick up truck at the LA motor show. Most impressive.

    I thought I'd seen the ugliest vehicle in history. Now the Rivian has proven me wrong. The technology behind it may be great but who designed this thing's exterior? It's absolutely horrific.

    I'll be honest, I used to hate the looks of this thing but it's growing on me. Still not a huge fan of the screens but despite that it's very impressive. It does everything a traditional pickup truck does but even better. I wonder how the aftermarket will adapt to this truck, or electric vehicles in general. I could see suspension kits, controller/computer remaps for better performance, etc, much like modern pickup modders.

    Jesus that pickup truck is beautiful. With battery pack being the center of gravity, it will probably handle much better than other pickups with very uneven weight distribution. Also, "frunk" while convenient, is a huge safety feature in direct collision.

      +H Eck it claims to do 400miles per charge. I doubt it can do that much, but even 300 miles is enough to go in and out of a wilderness area.

    it's no surprise that GM and Amazon each bought a stake in Rivian. This is truly a game changer in the truck and SUV arena. GM obviously wants to be the 1st major brand to bring an electric truck (ET?) to market and Amazon wants this this tech for a fleet of delivery trucks. Smart move on both fronts. Plus it gives Rivian a massive infusion of cash, which will help get these models to market much quicker, as well as begin developing additional products.

    No volume knob = fail. just like Honda.
    If the air controls are in that touch screen forget this thing. The screen will slow to load and the air controls will be burried. Just hell to making simple things complicated.

    Make the hood, roof, bed cover, doors, fenders, bed sides, tailgate exterior and windows into solar collectors. Add in a 37L/10 gallon water tank with a 6 volt or 9 volt pump, include a charcoal taste and micron bacteria filter that filters 10,000 gallons of water, plus a 15L/4 gallon propane gas tank with external valve to tie in to a BBQ Grill and Camping Lantern. Design a Truck Bed Tent that sleeps 6/8 people.
    There is already several companies that make a windows for buildings that collect solar from both sides. This way if the Sun is shining thru one window and onto another window's backside, they both collect solar power. This technology should be adapted for vehicles.
    The hood, doors, fenders and tailgate exteriors, I would spray on the silica coating and then inlay via 3D computer printing a printed graphite circuit pattern to serve as the positive and negative collectors. It could look like a black truck and a few other colors but the black is the most efficient in collecting solar. Tan, Grey, Desert Clay Red would also work in varying efficiencies. Then clear coat it with a fluoride clear-coat to seal it.
    Put on about 10 coats, so every three years, have it wet sanded with 2,000 grit sand paper and buff with ebony to keep it as smooth as glass. After 9 years, wet-sand with 1,000 and put on 8 to 9 more coats of clear coat, wet sand a few days later with 2,000 grit and buff with ebony. On the black the graphite would be less noticeable, but on the other colors, even though it is noticeable, it would look nice because it would not be lines like in normal solar panels, it would have that digital printed circuit pattern. You could experiment with the different colors of silica and create a background pattern like carbon fiber. So the vehicle looks like carbon fiber panels with printed circuit inlays.
    Use the solar to charge capacitors and then use the capacitors to burst charge the batteries when they are full. They can discharge after they cool down from charging. I would not discharge a hot capacitor, though it will not harm them, it should make them last longer because it keeps the soldered fittings from desoldering over time. The roof over the cab could stay glass or epoxy and make it solar also.

    Where will you get a $25,000 battery pack after they move on to some new technology or when they go bankrupt, like many others have? Imagine the DEPRECIATION! Only an idiot with too much money would buy one....

  • Paul Kojack

    It's not going to have anywhere near the range they claim I gaurantee that. You'd be lucky to get half of that under normal driving conditions and it'll probably be a quarter of that if your actually using it as a truck at anytime. Then consider it will have a huge premium price, but it won't last like a gas vehichle does. While you can expect 2-300k miles from a gasser, electrics have shown that they rarely make it beyond 100,000 miles without needing a new battery pack which will cost more than a new engine in a car. Don't be fooled by this "electric is the future" BS. Batteries are getting better, but it will never be cheap or sustainable and ALL batteries degrade with use, meaning while they may last much longer, it's still a disposeable part that WILL need to be replaced at some point because it will degrade and only hold 50% of it's original charge capacity eventually. While it's a great novelty for rich people, folks who are trying to make any kind of smart investment will steer well clear of electrics. Unless you think the gas it will save you will pay for your new battery pack by the time it degrades. Also don't believe the "electrics need no maintence" BS either. They don't, until they do. Has your blender ever stopped working? Ever heard of a modern car having issues with the computers and electronics? Oh yeah, that's most of what causes issues in modern cars. And this is all that is is one big computer and hunk of wiring. Trust, when your electric motor fails and you get the bill, you'll wish you had a normal car without the headaches.

    What is the range at zero degrees f? Or -10? Those are common winter night temps here. Heat in electric form takes a lot of energy. I drive 50 miles to work can the double toilet seat truck make in the winter @ 0 f going 65 mph at night? Plus I couldn't charge at work so would it make it home assuming it could make it to work? How long to recharge?
