It doesn't surprise me. With dropping the other models they cant keep it going on its own. But they are following in the footsteps of Ford in dropping small cars. If the line isn't profitable you drop it.
Most are shifting to taller cars (SUVs) for a number of reasons like they are easier to get in and out of instead of having to crawl out of a low to the ground car. Any time I get in a rental car I curse myself for going with the cheap car instead of an SUV. Its just the shift of the market.

I'm interested in the Rivian. Really good specs but what will the price be and will they be like tesla and apple where you cant buy parts or repair it.

Our lake place it 55 miles away. It was 92 degrees today I used the AC to keep it nice in cool in the car. Part of the trip is interstate driving set the cruse control to 68 MPH.
I went the whole way on EV power 55 miles and had 2-4 miles range left over. I also made the trip out there EV only.

Very nice to be able use no gas on this trip.
We are very happy with our car.
We have 18,694 EV miles so far.
We have 3,663 gas miles so far and are getting closer to our first oil change.
