General Motors built cars on the N Platform and its derivatives from the 1985 through 2005 model years, and five-speed manual transmissions were available on various N-based machines throughout that time. Very few American buyers of these cars were willing to operate three pedals by the dawn of the 21st century, but I have managed to find a five-speed-equipped Olds Alero in a Denver self-service car graveyard.

- Ajla At $22K to start it might have some legs. At $34K I don't know why they are bothering.
- Redapple2 Love the styling of the amazon delivery thingy.
- Dukeisduke One of the stories in today's Autoline Daily says Rivian could run out of cash in two years (they've got $7.8b in the bank now, and burned through $3.7b last year.). They've got to get to scale on the R2 to turn a profit. Remember, Tesla lost money for ten years, then finally got to scale with the Model 3.
- Oberkanone Sign me up for the Abarth 500 EV with 250 miles range and sub 5 second 0-60 mph with MSRP of $24,999.$34,095 for 150 miles range. Ridiculous. Stand alone showrooms in USA for FIAT and Alfa. What a ginormous waste of capital.
- Dave M. I'd bet they'd sell more if they ditched the L'il Orphan Annie headlights....
