I actually like this thing!
kind of funny how electric vehicles are supposed
to be helping the planet, but you could shred
all four tires down to steel belts while producing clouds of
rubber smoke in seconds!!

Will it do tank turns on pavement? Only saw in mud or dirt.

Should. One side moves forward and the other side goes in reverse. quad-motor electric drivetrain

Lincoln could tap into Rivian’s expertise to build an electric off-roader

I am getting one, but I doubt I'll take delivery before early 2021...

As far as towing, my guess is short and mid-distances will be great, but if long distance towing w/ any sort of grade, I am not sure EV tech is there yet. I don't want to have to charge mid-tow, so I don't plan on towing any longer than 120 miles. Maybe it will surprise me though. Excited, have been waiting for an EV to check all my required boxes before jumping in and the Rivian does

The new 2021 Yukon is capable of the same "tank turn".
