Lil’ Honda, Extra Rivian, and ChEV vs. Ford

Honda's launching sixty "Shogo" mini electric cars for U.S. children's hospitals. Initially designed by volunteer Honda engineers for the Children's Hospital of Orange County, the new Shogo aims to bring joy to patients aged 4-9. Features include a 1-5 mph speed limit, custom license plates, and an IV pole handlebar.

Rivian is poised to surpass EV delivery expectations this quarter suggests Baird analyst Ben Kallo, dubbing Rivian stock a "fresh pick.” Despite a recent 13% stock dip, Kallo remains optimistic, predicting Q3 sales of $1.5B.

Meanwhile, Tesla faces challenges with anticipated lower deliveries and factory downtimes, affecting its stock, which dropped about 11%.
