If their price comes down, maybe. Tesla seems focused on growing the supply of cheap cells today that can be swapped in. Solid state is a really untested technology yet, and really expensive.

I can't remember the "Company" who made a claim they have a solid state battery developed and would see production in 2025, I personal thought it was unfounded but ,I have seen magic acts that were seemingly authentic.

I don't know who that is, but there's a bus being delivered with them this year:

They might not be as dense as the batteries that Tesla uses, they certainly aren't in the same numbers as the batteries Tesla uses, which are the two reasons Tesla pushed ahead of the others in lowering the price per kWh.

I totally concur. In fact I will go out of my way to avoid Teslabruh. It’s impossible for me to listen to him for more than 15 seconds before wanting to just bang my head against the wall till I lose consciousness.
Agree completely. He's the only Youtuber I've blocked.

I give him credit for getting it done and making a Youtube channel, but he brings nothing new to the conversation. He appears to watch all the same people I watch, then splashes some click bait titles up, and parrots what was discussed last week.

Toyota solid state battery was supposed to be announced by 2020 July
Still waiting for Toyota

Solid-state batteries show promise
November 24, 2019
When the gull-wing doors raised on the swoopy Lexus LF-30 Electrified concept car during its Tokyo Motor Show debut late last month (2019 Oct), two words in bright blue letters could be seen on the car's threshold: "Solid State."
It was further evidence that Toyota is on track to keep a promise it made in 2017 to have solid-state batteries on the road by the mid-2020s.

I am expecting at least 5 yrs for SS batteries, there still isn't even a bench tested battery worth anything.

Fisker was saying their car was going to have SS batteries and that was just hot air

All i can say is that it only took two videos of Doug to watch and that was it. Never watched another one. He must get paid from some automakers! His video from the CT was so bias towards the hummer.

So are we just pretending that all of his other Tesla videos, where he gushes about the cars, were paid endorsements by Tesla?

Doug is a columnist, not a journalist. His job is to give an opinion, doesn't mean we have to agree. He's generally pretty open about his biases. He worked for Porsche in the past. And he has a huge soft spot for Land Rovers.

His opinions are apparently inconsistent.

That doesn't mean they're all paid for. That's a false dichotomy.

That his opinions are inconsistent and self-contradictory are reason enough to discount them.

Doug was very inconsistent in his opinions of the two vehicles. He was skeptical of everything about the Cybertruck, yet believed everything about the Hummer. This despite GM having yet to build an actual working Hummer prototype. Reeked of being bought off. It certainly lowered my opinion of his opinion.
Yeah, Hummer will likely try to slip a battery into an existing Hummer. This was Elon's FIRST LESSON with the Elise- do not convert an ICE engined vehicle, start from scratch. Leave it to GM and the fat and lazy corporate guys to screw this all up. peace
