Elon has consistently said that they would partner with anyone IF they pay for access. Ie. You can’t use the Supercharger network for free.I am just not impressed with Electrify America. Sure, they are fixing some problems, but do we really trust VW?
What are the obstacles to Rivian partnering with Tesla's SC network? Maybe RJ could call Elon and say, "Look, EA is charging people twice as much as it costs to drive an ICE car. If you really want to encourage adoption of EVs, let's make a deal on Rivian using Tesla's SC network."
Tesla now charges most new Tesla car owners fees for amount of energy used, but Tesla is no doubt still subsidizing the costs somewhat.
So I’m pretty sure RIvian could partner with either Tesla or EA or other networks if they wanted to subsidize customer access. That’s the question here. Will RIvian subsidize long distance charging?
