Is there a pick up style tesla truck coming out? What is this I see sometimes when I look up images?

Maybe Tesla will buy Lordstown Motors? Their $2B market cap is a rounding error to Elon.

Had the same thought. They could use the factory space! Model 2 anyone?

ETA: Tesla certainly has experience with acquiring factory assets in this manner!

But the experience might have taught them to NOT convert old factories.

I agree. Tesla is very quickly growing and they have already shown an interest in making giant factories. I think that when Tesla starts making the Model 2, they will need another giant factory. The demand for an even cheaper vehicle will probably exceed the demand that was seen for the Model 3, Model Y and Cybertruck. A model 2 would be a great cheaper car for company cars, people buying vehicles to use as a taxi or uber, people buying them in the future for robotaxi, first cars parents buy their kids, and of course people who just aren't able to afford a model 3 and don't want to take out a car loan.

Looking at Fremont from a satellite photo it is an absolute cluster. Lordstown doesn't look that bad. I would not doubt if the property was available Tesla would do some low level studies at the minimum. Same with Rivian?

It could be the avenue to the hearts and soul of middle America.
