And you think the current distribution of chargers will remain static, and you will consistently drive way above the speed limits?

Sometimes, slower is faster. It's always safer.

I am an old guy. I drive at speed limit most of time.
I know Tesla is building more changers. EVGo & ElectrifyAmerica are building more changes too. But number is increasing very slowly.

Am I the only guy that read the Plaid launch with RWD-colored CyberShades?

Wow… what a boxfull of toys with which to build Cybertrucks. I saw a Plaid dual-motor RWD, killer THERMAL management for a hungry battery, 1000 hp perfect torque curve and acoustic glass - YESS

Tri-motor PLAID has to be in the works. Did you see the sizeof that thing, Plaid motor ass’y? It gives ICE a run for its money.

Plaid is the powertrain in the tri-motor.

It's like the V-8 short-block of decades past... In a truck, it was super-competent. In a sedan, it was powerful and got super acceleration. In a coupe, it was nuts.

That's the Cybertruck, Plaid Model S, and Roadster.

Interesting PLAID == motor only. I like it, your take works in a car guybrain shorthand fashion! LOL

Leon Redbone famous lyric-rap “size of that thing” definitely looks size of a V8.
