    Details on the new EV credit from the AP

    Well here is an interesting loophole (bolded) that they could work with to qualify despite having the mineral sources not meet the percentage requirement. I could see them either purchasing spent cells in massive quantities anywhere in the world, shipping those spent cells to the USA for...

    Ford has officially raised their Lightning pricing

    Yes, the way they write these bills is to amend the existing previous bill. So if you amend the existing bill to have completely different credits and requirements, then the old bill's credits and requirements cease to exist.

    Musk: "Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, but it will be a damn fine product."

    It would actually be perfect for me. Two seater all I need. And a truck bed. Although if they just extended the bed another 6-12" I'd feel a little more content with it. Range is fine if it's between 260-300 for me especially if they keep that price point. Tesla should just buy alpha motors...

    Musk: "Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, but it will be a damn fine product."

    Never heard of this till now.. and its hilarious that yet another EV truck is modeled after Back to the Future! I actually love this truck too! If it weren't vaporware I might even be torn between the CT and this simply on visuals and nostalgic references alone. And, yes I did just place...

    Details on the new EV credit from the AP

    Assembly in the USA is not under question for Tesla. What is unclear is how much of the raw materials Tesla uses to create those cells meets the requirements.

    Will Tesla Insurance cover Cybertruck in all states?

    If that is banned, then it appears unlikely California will allow Tesla insurance. That is the meat and potatoes of their insurance.

    Musk Expects Cybertruck Production to Begin Mid-2023 [Per Q2 Earnings Call]

    Nice touch. I see you updated your vehicle list to a "2023 Cybertruck". If I had confidence of their timeline to reach my reservation, I'd do the same but "2026 Cybertruck". ;)

    Musk Expects Cybertruck Production to Begin Mid-2023 [Per Q2 Earnings Call]

    But if you never open and read the thread.. is the cat in any of the threads?

    Musk: "Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, but it will be a damn fine product."

    I agree. Mostly. Except with the CT they themselves have said they expect to produce 500k units a year. Not doing that per year in the luxury niche market. Maybe the first few years they can meet their maximum capacity to produce within this luxury market, but how many years of back log at...

    Musk: "Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, but it will be a damn fine product."

    Ok say you are right.. which most likely you are about the demand from super rich silicon valley bros. Then how large is this demand/market from super rich silicon valley bros? I suspect its not much larger than the list of fanboy bros that attended the Investor Relations meeting last week...

    Details on the new EV credit from the AP

    This is what I'm sayin'.. and wish more experts would write articles detailing the percentage of materials each OEM sources fit this requirement. But I think it is slightly less restrictive than your quoted article mentions. Fixed it for you: “For an EV buyer to qualify for the full credit...

    Ford has officially raised their Lightning pricing

    My mistake. Glanced at the article and misread 7700 for f-150 sales when in fact that read the total sum of all Ford ev sales. Even more damning for them and their level of commitment to the technology.

    Will Tesla Insurance cover Cybertruck in all states?

    Strange list of states. I'd love an article or video getting into the nitty gritty of how that list is rolling out. I'm assuming it's based on level of strictness a state's insurance laws and requirements are.

    Ford has officially raised their Lightning pricing

    Let me rephrase cause when I initially read about this new credit program I swear they described the battery mineral requirement as not coming from countries that are considered" conflict zones" or something like that. Now I read this requirement being discussed as "that materials and “critical...

    Musk: "Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, but it will be a damn fine product."

    My reference to a reduction in traffic was to point out that reduction in site traffic implies less people actively revisiting these threads and topics, which is water under the bridge! So this topic will be water under the bridge sooner or later depending on your wallet! Personally, I can't...

    Ford has officially raised their Lightning pricing

    230 mi range is a tough pill to swallow for $46k when there are better options out there in the vicinity of that price. Reminder, total Lightning sales so far == 7,700 through July, with only approximately 200k reservations. Not a confident statement of their commitment to this brand.

    Musk: "Cybertruck pricing and specs will be different, but it will be a damn fine product."

    True, but if the pricing burns too many people, you will see a noticeable decrease in traffic to this site, cause the scorched will not care to engage in the topic between being burned and someone else's actual delivery. They will have moved on. I suspect the list of true die hards "at any...

    Unless a new class of buyer joins, there will not be many takers at $85k+ for a pickup

    Silverado EV is rumored priced between 40k and 100k with a top end model range of 400 miles. No info on the 40k model range.. I am guessing here with the info that is public knowledge that the Silverado EV is the same powertrain as the Hummer EV, but in a much lighter build/frame. Hummer EV...
