Very interesting:

Bi-Directional "Jump Charging"
We should note that the Rivian R1T and R1S, Lucid Air, and Ford F-150 Lightning all offer bi-directional charging and a cord with a CCS Combo 1 charging plug on both ends. This means that if you pass another EV that has run out of juice, you can simply share some of your electricity without any potentially dangerous flat towing.

Thanks for sharing -- very interesting indeed! The video attached to the linked Motortrend article (maybe they posted the wrong video with the article?) was a bit of an unfortunate bait and switch considering what I was hoping to see, but the article text itself was on topic. This is the first I've read or heard of such a "cord with a CCS Combo 1 charging plug on both ends"? I wonder where they sourced their info. Learn something new every day!
