Just more rule changing to even the playing field for some to even be close to even lol

Does this increase or decrease shipping costs to consumers?

Something tells me ev will raise costs initially if not permanently

Just by curiosity, how many of you have driven big rigs?

I have not driven one on the highway. I have backed them in way back when I worked in a meat market and the truckers went on strike. The fellas driving during that time had trouble backing into the docks. Funny thing is some of the union guys did too. They just didn't ask for help.

My step dad was a trucker and owner operator for many years.

Will Tesla ultimately build their semi truck plant at the Austin TX site?
They are ramping up production of the 4680 cell. 4680ís are lighter than 2170 cells.

 Is there enough land ?

How many good paying jobs will be added to the community when the semi plant is complete?

I used to drive a big rig when I was in college. Climbing hills with a full load going to Nevada meant I was going 35 mph on steep grades. I will never forget the smell of diesel.

A semi that can go 65 mph on steep grade is a godsend.

Mr. Zeihan pretty much nails my concerns.

Toxic, psychotic, self-aggrandizing drama queens simply aren't worth me spending my time on.

I would not accept that kind of cabin in my truck, even if it was running with holy spirit. The most clumsy and unpractical ever.

Man-bun.  'nuff said.

I haven't researched the truck much, but I d wonder what an economic collapse will do do to the demand for high priced vanity toys like Tesla.

Guess we'll see.

"High priced vanity toys" lol.  The most-sold Tesla vehicle ever sold will be one they haven't announced yet and costs less than the average current vehicle price.

Anyways, we're already seeing it:

Let me rephrase that.

Lets just see what this year has in store for Tesla.

Just because a stock's valuation has dropped 70%, doesn't mean it can't drop another 70% from there.   ;)
