Rivian and Ford chase Pike’s Peak glory, China’s angry, and pricing news


on this special Juneteenth edition of Quick Charge: Rivian and Ford are chasing Pike’s Peak glory with their own takes on the best way to get a 1000+ hp electric truck up the mountain. Meanwhile, it’s Ford vs. Ferrari again in terms of who has the most attractive price for their prancing horse, Chinese car brands want a trade war, and Shell has an ultra-fast megawatt charging solution good for both land AND sea!

That featured image was from last year’s Pike’s Peak run, where the Rivian composed itself well and Ford’s 1400 hp Supervan placed second. Via PPIHC.
