Thanks for posting.
Looks like Palm Springs is making you work
@BayouCityBob
Thanks for compiling the information

My immediate takeaway is the advantageous SUV shape WITHOUT the sloping roof
Sure happy to have Reserved the Fisker Ocean

Rivian RS1??? A wee bit bigger methinks!

FWIW, if you're looking for a comparison you're likely to see out on the road this weekend, I currently drive a Range Rover Velar and it's the almost the exact same dimmensions per the specs on both vehicles. The Velar is b/w the full size RR and the small Evoque and to me has been the perfect size for a city dweller SUV (chicago for me) in that it easier to parralel park and slide into narrow garages, and navigate around delivery trucks on one way streets, but it's big enough haul kids bikes, xmas trees, folding table, and probably more importantly gives you enough height for confident lines of sight in close traffic and sense that others will also see and dodge you. This is important to me b/c while I like the idea of "park my car" features, I'll probably wait until I know how I'd get it fixed before relying on it over my own technique (and not trying be like 'im best parrell parker ever' or anything). .

Always thought the RR Velar was the perfect-sized SUV

Thank you, kindly. I put it in the Google doc but reserved 4/30, got email on Monday, took a few days to run another lap around alternatives present and future, and pre-ordered Thursday. Horizon grey/Malibu blu/22 air stream/ and key fob :) … will be my first EV so will be relying on you all for advice on charging equipment recs etc.

but yeah, agree on size of O1/Velar… plus one thing Velar can’t do is roll down back window, so for the 2-3 year I have some long object to haul around locally, that feature will be very helpful. Just hoping I can get it before my velar lease runs out in the spring!
