You all know about the electric car maker Tesla but have you heard about a Michigan based startup company called Rivian?
Many of our clients are blue collar, hard-working, family oriented, small business owners. They put in many hours a week on the road going to multiple job sites and servicing clients away from the office. When asked what they spend their money on its pretty straight forward. First, they invest in their business to make sure it keeps on making money and second, it’s their family. The largest expenses that the majority of business owners are dealing with, apart from office rent and employee salaries, are their automobile and gas bills. Depending on the size of the business this expense was adding up to thousands a year. For many business owners cutting down on the amount of money spent on transportation would mean a great deal in yearly savings.
When I first heard about this small electric automobile company from Michigan that was building a pickup truck that is capable at getting the job done at work and then would act as the perfect adventure vehicle for the weekends, I was interested to say the least. A lot of us use the pickup truck as a work horse during the week and then make the switch to the wife’s fuel-efficient family car for tackling errands and driving to leisure activities on weekends. Rivian has created a pickup truck that can carry 1,800 pounds of payload and has a towing capacity of 11,000 pounds. It can also go from zero to 60 miles an hour in a near three seconds if equipped with the large battery pack. It is very capable of driving through more than three feet of water in case you live near a flood zone or anywhere that’s at risk for storm surges. To me this sounds like both a vehicle for work and a fun toy for that weekend warrior that we all look forward to transforming into every Friday afternoon.
This multi-purpose pickup truck is exactly what a lot of small business owners are looking for. It makes perfect sense that companies like Amazon and Ford have both invested a substantial amount of money and funded the future growth of Rivian. I’m a big believer in investing in cost effective tools that will get the job done and to own something that serves more than one purpose is an added benefit. Apart from being eco-friendly, the truck is fully functional at everything that it was created to do and provides owners the ability to eliminate that awful gas bill that is usually responsible for eating away at company profits.
