Are you on Team Bollinger or Team Rivian?

I'm on Team Bollinger for style reasons. But it does seem like Rivian has better specs and value, overall.

Bollinger



Rivian

Only concern with the Rivian, giant battery pack for the range... is there an electrical equivalent to the term "gas guzzler?" Someone should coin one.

I thought the whole point was to reduce resource and energy consumption and thus save the planet, not ravage it even harder?
