There isn't a hard release date set yet but the Lincoln SUV is expected for 2022.Do we know when this SUV is going to come out?
Good to know, I'm really interested to see how similar (or not) it looks to the R1S.There isn't a hard release date set yet but the Lincoln SUV is expected for 2022.
Lincoln is going to be releasing an electric SUV in 2022 and according to Reuters, it will use a custom electric chassis developed by Rivian. Reuters also suggests that the Lincoln SUV will be a competitor to the R1S. DETROIT (Reuters) - A battery-powered Lincoln SUV, due in mid-2022, will be...www.rivianownersforum.com
Is there something in particular that you wish Rivian would change with the R1S?I’d like to see them make it similar to the new Aviator. I was going to put a deposit on the R1S until I heard Lincoln was going to use the Rivian skateboard. I’m one of those older guys who‘d prefer the luxury of Lincoln over the adventure theme of Rivian.
That does seem to be their marketing angle, but I feel like it's more for people that like to go camping (or "glamping") rather than serious off-roading. I think there's going to be more luxury features than expected. But I agree with you their partnership with Lincoln makes things very interesting.Having only seen videos and pictures, they‘re focus seems to be toward those seeking adventure, and might like to take the R1S off-road, and don’t mind getting it muddy, both outside and inside. I’m looking for a 3 row EV, about the size of the Lincoln Aviator, that would focus on the luxury. It would need to have carpet, which the R1S doesn’t, be very quiet, have the creature comforts I see in the new Lincolns. The R1S looks like it will have many luxury touches, but I‘m waiting to see what they do with the Lincoln.
I think it looks pretty good but I see where you're coming from. Unfortunately because of the Coronavirus outbreak it looks like the project may have been scrapped.This looks like a wagon. I’m hoping it will be more like the rendering you posted from InsideEvs, or just a fully electric Aviator.
I'm sorry to see you go @OldEVGuy, hopefully you find what you're looking for!Unfortunately, it appears to be true. I’m a huge fan of R.J. and what he’s doing. He has so many bright, talented people with him, I‘m confident they will be able to produce world class vehicles.
I was really counting on the Rivian based Lincoln as my first choice for my first EV. I guess I’ll move on to Plan B. . . the Volvo XC90 Recharge BEV that’s supposed to be out in 2022. In the mean time, I’ll be watching closely, what Ford does with a BEV for Lincoln.
I hope all of you on this forum enjoy your Rivian. I’ll be watching from the sidelines.
Ford confirmed today that it canceled plans to use Rivian’s electric platform for a Lincoln-badged electric vehicle. Ford still plans to produce a Lincoln EV but using its own technology.electrek.co
