things that are neat about the rivian

powered frunk hood

a button in the front will open and close the hood. (The tesla is manual and you sort of need to shove it closed.) I end up using this all the time.

Also, you can fill it with ice and it has a drain, so you can use it as a cooler. I haven't tried that yet.

hotspot and cell service

The Rivian consistently has service when my phone doesn't. Connecting the phone to the car's built in hotspot means that I can even sort of stream music or podcasts from the phone up here in the woods.

Sort of.

fast voice command

We play a game in the car where the kids get to choose a song based on the order that they buckle up. So there's a lot of "play the worlds smallest violin" or "play start a riot". Using the button on the steering wheel, the voice command on the rivian is significantly faster than on the Tesla.

the front glows when you charge

The front grill of the car glows green when charging

there's a flashlight in the door

Which uses the same battery cell as the car. There's also a speaker you can remove from the car and use I guess during your picnic party.
