If not $100K what about $65k? With a $100k top trim? You are arguing with me about something I am not... I am talking about the launch vehicle, and the prices of the Top spec CT... you are talking about 20 million EVs a year run rate and the goal of Tesla by 2030. Today, Tesla is making $$ at an average selling price per vehicle of $65k, and massive profit margins. Tell me, why would Tesla rake in 30%+ profit margins in their goal was to give away EVs as cheap as possible?I get that you really want to have this exclusive maximum nerd-cred truck. But you don’t seem to grasp what Tesla’s goals are. Nor do you seem to get the very basics of supply and demand curves.
You are even mis-stating the existing electric truck market. Most electric trucks sell for under $100k. Look at Ford’s lineup. Look at Rivian’s. You can get trucks spec’d that high, but it’s hardly the norm.
You cannot sell millions of truck for $100k when the vast majority of truck buyers only make $82k/ year. There aren’t enough nerds out there looking for a status symbol to support the kind of volume Tesla wants either. I am a nerd. I appreciate the nerd appeal, not an insult. I can also afford a $100k truck. But white collar/ nerd crowd isn’t going to support this vehicle.
