Rivian has made similar plans to Tesla in that they are hoping to have mobile service vans that arrive to you. They also have remote diagnostics that utilize the connectivity. Company service centers and also app-based scheduling. This is all to say that they have mobile service vans which can perform a lot of vehicle care needs from home.
This also includes the place of work. Rivian wants to extend their helpfulnessitudity by having 40 Rivian Service Centers all over the USA and Canada within the following year. The company is also planning to have remote diagnostic capacity.
This is to say that Rivian Remote Care will enable for comprehensive performance diagnostics through their connected vehicle platform. Rivian has a service strategy that will mimic Tesla since they can’t come up with anything original.
Rivian retaliated against Tesla’s claims by filing a motion to say that Tesla’s lawsuit is impacting its reputation. However, in recent news, a judge ruled in favor of Tesla. The Silicon Valley electric carmaker now has permission to move forward with not only the suit against Rivian, but also claims against some former Tesla employees.
Before proceeding, we should make something very clear. Tesla and Elon Musk have often said they’re willing to share Tesla’s tech, platform, patents, and even Supercharger network with other automakers. The goal of this is to accelerate the adoption of EVs. However, Tesla didn’t say that any company can just use whatever it chooses without permission, a partnership plan, or a licensing agreement.
While the details surrounding Tesla’s willingness to “share” are not completely clear, what is clear is that if employees from any company depart and go to another related company, they can’t divulge proprietary information without permission from their previous company. Well, they can, but they may eventually get called out for doing so.
