That's nice, for a car. Not what I would consider "competition" though, since Rivian has no presence in the car market.

Do you think Rivian should make a car this size though? because I'd like to see them do it.

Personally, I think there are too many players in that segment. No hurry for Rivian to make their entry.
I don't think Rivian should rush into the small SUV segment either, but I do think it's going to be their best option after the R1T and R1S.

I believe Rivian agrees with you ... in general. While attending the Normal event listening in on a conversation with a Rivian team lead he hinted at the next set of models they would produce would include smaller versions the R1S and R1T.

A smaller version of the R1T would be very interesting to see. I guess it would be similar size to the likes of the Ford Ranger, Chevrolet Colorado and the Toyota Tacoma.
