Oh no, I thought I'm going to get mine this October!
I would expect at least one year additional time to what ever the worst speculation is presented.

Quote:

Ever since Apple and other Big Tech companies hit a market capitalization of $1 trillion, many sectors are revving to follow suit—including the automotive industry.

But among those car brands racing to reach this total valuation, some are closer to the finish line than others. This visualization uses data from Yahoo Finance to rank the world’s top car manufacturers by market capitalization.

What could this spell for the future of the automotive industry?

It’s clear one company is pulling far ahead of the pack. In the competition to clinch this coveted title, Tesla is the undoubted favorite so far.

The electric vehicle (EV) and clean energy company first became the world’s most valuable car manufacturer in June 2020, and shows no signs of slowing its trajectory.

That's actually bad news for the timeline for my Cybertruck order.

And I thought Tesla is researching on the use of the more readily available and plentiful soda as material.

Would be sad to not get the new 4680 cells just to be first.

Don’t know for sure but doubt that would happen. I think the battery in the CT may be structural. Just a guess but have seen some mumblings on the web about that.

It appears Tesla is under pressure (or Elon is pressuring his tech team) to come up with a longer range battery for semi. Range and re-charging turn-around are the biggest issues on semi.
