YES, and this is an important question for the long term ownership decision of a complex unproven brand. That's why I created this poll to gauge this passionate group's assessment of Rivian's long term viability.
Sorry, I totally missed that. Does put them in a bind, either way. Loose consumer confidence and a lot of orders, or make vehicles at a substantial loose.

This is not necessarily true. Rivian had already acquired and procured most of the materials for LE vehicles. True that costs of have increased since order dates, reducing (potentially higher) margins on those LE sales if they were to be re-priced today, but cost increases were likely built-in to prices already.

Tesla wasn't profitable for many years and only recently have they gotten consistently profitable. EV tech and supply chains are still in their infancy, but as more and more manufacturers make compelling EVs, costs will drop. The 2020s will be very exciting affer this rough patch caused by inflationary supply issues...2023 is when things should start turning around, slowly but surely, and in 2024 we should see not only a return to pricing we were used to before these last 2yrs, but also a way more competitive EV market.
