I am a big Tesla fan, but that picture is way out of proportion.

Biiden plan to replace government vehicles with EV


The current administration is on board with country's march to EV.

650,000 is a lot!


I saw that but after reading the artical no one has any capacity to build it to Bidens specs at this point and time. Lol. All smoke and mirrors at this point.


You must be kidding. Even Tesla can produce them if given the vendor exclusivity as this will be purchased over time.

I doubt though if Tesla will customize to produce those postal delivery vehicles -- so Ford, GM can get part of. the action.

And maybe Toyota, Nissan, too, if they can comply with the new and stricter American content mandate by Biden-Harris administration..


Biden siad it would bring lots of "union jobs" back. That dosen't fit with non union tesla. The stuff thats not said sometimes is as important as what is. So , thw mandate is just not american parts /made. Its also union made.

From the article:
"Right now, not a single model fits the president's criteria: battery-powered, made in America, by union workers."

Why does he demand union workers? I guarantee you that it is purely political and will most likely be a huge waste of taxpayer money. Kind of like Boeing rockets vs Space X. Ten times the cost per launch.

Looks like the Tesla model S got its makeover...and price increase. Slightly different body but same lines, revamped interior and new performance specs. I like it. Probably the eventual replacement for our model 3...in like 4 years.

So now the slowest, bare bones clunkiest shortest range Tesla model S starts at 79900.
It has 412 miles of range.
Goes from zero to sixty in 3.1 seconds

The performance plaid version for an extra 40 grand will get you under 2 seconds zero to sixty and another 20 K on top of that...well...even faster. 1100 horsepower.

Elon: Semi is ready but for the battery

Yeah Elon, isn't that every EV manufacturers' problem?

Otherwise, Ford would just have slapped batteries on their F150 -- and they'll be first in market.

Battery production has been a near continuous problem for Tesla.

I wonder if it's materials sourcing issue or their constant innovation.
