Right but the R1S would be in the “SUV” category which is up to $69k and the R1S base price is $70k
They could sell the car without tires for 69k. 🤣

Seriously, if this law passes I am 100% sure Rivian finds a way of lowering the base price by 1k.

Also, the base price is not 70k. We don't know the base price yet because they haven't opened the small battery version for sale. That for sure will be more than 1k cheaper.

Yeah there in lies the problem with this type of structure, manufacturers and consumers start choosing smaller batteries to get under the cap. Also I think having both an income restriction and a price cap is redundant. You can always contact your representatives to tell them what you think.

With a cap Rivian Blue gets a whole lot more expensive. I’d go with one of the free colors and add only the full size spare to stay under the cap.
I think the cap is for the base price of the vehicle. You can still configure the car the way you want even if it ends up costing more than 69k at the end and get the incentive.
