Startup automakers don’t always have the best luck when it comes

to vehicle production and long-term viability, but Rivian is looking to buck that trend.

Despite some layoffs and initial product delays,

the company has released two vehicles, the R1T and R1S, and its customers have great

things to say about them. Even so, Rivian’s EVs aren’t cheap and

are currently only eligible for half of the $7,500 federal EV tax credit.
