Honestly I don't consider Bollinger, Nikola, and Lordstown proper competitiors.

Bollinger is a very expensive niche market vehicle and Nikola/Lordstown are completely unproven and don't have anywhere the resources that Rivian has. The should really be the R1T, electric F-150, Hummer, and Cybertruck.

Nikola and Lordstown are going to be interesting cases to see if they flourish. Apparently Lordstown has received a LOI for 1,000 orders from Florida-based company specializing in fast DC and Level II EV chargers.

They've also received LOI's for 250 trucks for FirstEnergy, 500 trucks for Clean Fuels Ohio.

A LOI is a lot different than an actual order. They could easily cancel this at any time. Even if they're real 1000 trucks is not a lot.
