Impossible promise

Another impossible promise


Musk indeed tend to overpromise. I should not be complaining as I've made money off those boasting.

He also goes into unnecessary fights. Stomping on the 2nd place Bezos as if it will further boost his position upwards and higher when he was already no. 1.

He might yet realize that it's better to have friends than enemies and that no one wins fighting City Hall.

Meanwhile, let's continue to make profit on it enjoy the results of his ingenuity -- up until the gravy train stops and wheels start coming off.

This guy has some great points, however one he is missing is the utilization time of an over the road truck- a truck isn't earning if its wheels aren't turning. A team-driven diesel semi can be rolling up to 120 hours per week and can go 1500+ miles without refueling. Even after a robust commercial charging network is in place, electric semis will need to stop every 400 miles or so for a recharge. I don't know what the charge times will be for the semi, but until the down time for recharging is similar to that of a diesel truck for refueling, they won't be able to match the productivity for over the road. Now, for local work it's a whole different story, I can see electric trucks beating diesels hands down for operating costs.

I assume this local work will be the use case in virtually all circumstances for many years.

Pepsi has said that’s the plan for awhile now. They installed their own chargers in the facility in Modesto.

That's just more rumors with no information from anyone involved. Just repeating the same thing they've been saying for months. It doesn't even come from PepsiCo or Tesla, just a "journalist".
