Saw a bit on the news regarding the Rivian BEV SUV and pick up, due on sale next year. The BBC World News were looking at it at the LA Auto Show. Looks impressive.

I see Tesla are sending a team to investigate why a Model S suddenly caught fire and exploded in a Shanghai car park. Teslas getting nearly as bad as Kias and Hyundais.
