This one by Popular Mechanic. “Too little too late” is their click bait headline.
Article includes the line
“the electric truck industry is quickly flooding with high-quality vehicles from legitimately well-known manufacturers”

What a load of crap from another pub accepting legacy advert $

Popular Mechanics has always been pro-Detroit, but from their perspective it makes sense. From 'my' perspective I don't care what they (or any detractors) say. If Tesla produces the Cybertruck that they said they would (and for me that is a 3mm stainless exoskeleton with a 500+ mile range) then that is what I am getting. For me it isn't just about functional features but about what Tesla offers as a company. Taken together you would almost be a fool to go with any other truck (no offense intended).

How are there more choices than in 2020?

If you weren't in the announce-party for a Lightning you're not getting one soon; The queue for a Rivian is still long and it's not getting appreciably shorter. There's no additional queue for the Lightning. There's no real queue for the Canoo either and the Silverado isn't until model year 2024. And the others are still just renders!

What do they mean the market is crowded?

Magazines, the media in general... funded by advertisements. Tesla has never bought ads, commercials... so yes, hit pieces come and will keep coming. Meh. I'd take a wild guess that people that read Popular Mechanics aren't the target CT demographic.
