I believe the battery plants in Texas and Germany will be Tesla, however I understand your confusion since Panasonic, CATL, and another battery company are also going to make 4680’s however I dont believe they will be using all of Tesla’s secrets.
BTW, thanks For the information about the 250K...
I’m in line around 400,000th for the cybertruck, so I’ve preordered a lightning. SorryJeff I’m keeping my cybertruck order, and expect to be able to drive the lightning for 3 years before getting the cyber truck, perhaps longer, there is really no way of knowing. Oh, I also have a reservation...
I definitely will be getting the Cybertruck... but I'm 400,000 in line for a tri-motor, so I pre-ordered an electric F150, to use while a wait 3 to 5 years for my cybertruck... hope it has vehicle to grid by then.
I must admit to reserving a Lighting, since 400,000 cybertruck reservations are ahead of me.
The downside of the lightning for me.
1> range (300 miles is really too low for Oklahoma)
2> No air shocks.
3> Charging speed.
4> Charging network.
Good side for me:
1> There are only 20,000...
I put in a pre-order of the lightning, since there are 400,000 reservations before me for the cybertruck. The Cybertruck is heads and tails above the lightning, but my 20+ year old truck is hitting its limit.
So hopefully the lightning will keep me going until my Cybertruck reservation comes...
