The Teslerati making the same comparison of Model X to Rivian R1S.

It's a bit meaningless.

The keys are battery size and range, heavier trucks like Rivian, Hummer, F150, Silverado have the batteries and range, 300-400 miles with zero emissions.

One of the boat owners has an old school Hummer with bumper stickers about his not losing his man card driving a EV. Be too much fun to park the bigger, faster, stronger Hummer EV next to him.

Of course blowing off the smokers with 0-60 in 3 seconds is not be overlooked either.

The power of the Hummer doesn't translate to towing though, they only rate it 7500#'s, same as R1S.

I remember when the Hummer H2 came out and real estate agents began driving them as status symbols.
I remember when the H1 came out and celebrities drove them as status symbols, and to conquer the impassable terrain of Beverly Hills.

I also remember when the Army took away our Jeeps and replaced them with the far less practical HMMWVs.
