Of course you wouldn’t but you are a massive Tesla fan. Surprised you are even on here and not the Tesla forums.
Tesla has lauded multiple moats including batteries (available from Panasonic by anyone else), their manufacturing approach (again behind most established manufacturers) and now the...
Hopefully there will be movement soon if there is a house bill already being discussed. They can cover parts of PA from Ohio (Pittsburgh) and New Jersey/Delaware (for Philadelphia area).
I now understand why Lucid has two NJ locations - helps them cover multiple sites.
He said the tech was good, including the navigation and charging status.You are trying to find something substantial to complain about, not surprise given your username. At least Rivian are not making vehicles under tents or with atrocious panel gaps.
He spent 38 minutes on the interior and exterior, with only a few minutes for driving. Impressed with the quirks and features. I look forward to the R1S review.
Interestingly this missed out on the highest score ever by one point. He said a couple of times how he prefers the R1S for looks and...
What you suggest makes sense that they were reluctant to commit capital (of which now they have plenty). Service centers should have started months earlier as well as the stockpiling of key components. Oh well time lost, hopefully they can accelerate before the onslaught of competition arrives.
Was there much for her to do since the colors (interior and exterior) and design elements were chosen years ago. I am joking a little but she had no input on the vehicles we have been seeing for the past few months.
Glad they are going to provide guidance for none LE holders by end of this year. They can model by quarter and have a reasonable estimate. Would be good to have a poll then so we get some idea of the ramp they expect into 2023.
There have been debates about $100 vs $1000 and does $1000 show more seriousness? While I see the impact a larger reservation number could have on the stock in the short term this will be irrelevant if they, by some estimates, will barely get to 50k by the end of 2023.
Yes I do wonder how many reservations increase by. It was around 7k in October. 100k seems optimistic but we will see. There is the demand out there (not even touched international yet or a third model). The future is bright, just hope they manage it.
Thanks for your reply. Full of data and facts. You seem to agree that they will satisfy preorder holders by early/mid 2023. I hoped by q1 wowed so not far apart. I thought EDV was 65-75k a year, so that leaves even with some increase at least 100k for the R1s.
$5billion for a new factory...
