Today I post a different thought-provoking question about electric car company Rivian: In these photos of a Rivian masquerading as a Ford at an electric charging station, you can make out the modified chassis underneath.
You might also notice there are no tailpipes, and the wheels seem just a little too small. Surprisingly, the Ford logo is still present on the truck body in both the front and back, along with the F mark on the side.
I sure hope Rivian has a licensing agreement…. For the past few months, consumers have been reporting sightings of strange Fs with missing features, speculating that the trucks might be prototypes for an electric Ford. And he also suggested the company may be testing under other masks: Note, however, that functional aspects of trade dress are not protected—only ornamental features are.

On the other hand, Rivian could probably take simple steps to modify the body of its testing vehicles to reduce the trade dress risks created by its masquerade.
