"Stainless-steel plated" is not a thing, lol

They probably meant "stainless-steel clad" but fumbled with their thesaurus app

Sounds like Reuters has lost all credibility.

Plate metal is 6mm or more thickness, so yeah, just bad writing. The car is not plated.

Let’s not forget the article about Tesla 4680 cell production. That was also very poor research. Reuters is supposed to be a real news agency with real professionals that don’t publish for clicks. How many trustworthy news sources do we have anymore?
