Conclusion: Only Rivian and Tesla has something a little more definite on specs and prices.

Many of us have been saying these great things are possible since the very first post.
Then Freightliner puts out a few large vehicles and they are the greatest thing since sliced bread.
Why all the doomsday, impossible and negativity for Tesla?

Interesting, though I'm curious about the towing range.

According to the article they have 800,000 test miles, I’m sure between all 4 platforms.
