I really do. Rarely do I ever root for success on a new car company. Cynical, yes?
I argued that Teslas didn't understand what a car meant - that giving only two screens in an otherwise empty interior was not enough to make your car feel like home (I was wrong).
When I saw startup electric car companies popping up in the past decade, I thought to myself, huh what a bunch of over ambitious people with bad financial planning (I'm looking at you, Faraday Future).
But then, somehow Rivian manages to capture my heart.
I guess it's the fact that their trucks show a glimmer of hope in adventuring into the wild in a zero emissions car, and those two aspects seem to go hand in hand if you get what I mean.
All I can say is this, one day I hope I'm able to hurl down a meadow in New Zealand (officially my dream country to move to) with a Rivian.
I wish you all the best in your succession, Rivian!
