Typical "best case scenario" speculative article. Rivian would be smart to allow all to charge since it would appear some locations would get limited use for years until Rivian can reach reasonable production numbers. As we know, the free for life model would be a mistake (Thank you Tesla for showing us that) but being exclusive would be a bigger mistake (thank you Tesla)cwerdna wrote: ↑Thu Dec 10, 2020 10:25 pmRivian is building its own EV charging network, but with an adventurous twist

Hmm... it seems likely they may not bother installing CHAdeMO at their stations. And, it's unclear if the CCS stations will actually be usable by or blocked for non-Rivian vehicles.
Please back that up with links showing such. I doubt very much the incremental cost is "almost nothing".
200 kWh? You talking about kW?
