This from the king of epic gibberish:

Narcissistic personality disorder — a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others.


WTF?


2012 Coleman,

Delusional disorder, previously called paranoid disorder, is a type of serious mental illness called a psychotic disorder. People who have it can’t tell what’s real from what is imagined.


It took you that long to look at the mirror -- or, look it up in the dictionary? lol

Hi,

Amazon and Ford (in partnership with GM?) are investing into Rivian.

I hope they can come up with a pick up that can compete toe-to-toe with Tesla.

Amazon's technology will be a big boost to them. I just don't know about battery technology with the industry saying Tesla is decades ahead.

Musk needs to eat some humble pie. Every time he opens his mouth, my portfolio gets a haircut.


GM did not invest- Fact

Industry says Tesla is decades ahead - Do you really agree to that? You think that it will take everybody else more than 10 (or 20 since it is plural) years to have the comparable battery technology?

Your investments show in every post you make.


Things don't just get true because you say so!

Where do you people live that even internet news don't reach you in time?[emoticon][emoticon][emoticon][emoticon][emoticon]

GM and Amazon Invest in Rivian



I hope you learn that "in talks" does not mean signed agreement, money exchanged, etc.


Wait...does that mean funding secured may not have happened? My perception of internet news has just been blown away. [emoticon]

Up until this post I thought Tesla was a private company now.

Classic Chinese "appropriation" of U.S. designs. I guess imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Not so bad in the looks department. Definitely copied from US models. I wonder about the performance. There are many locally-made EV in China but it is limited to within-city use. There are also limited range for-hire EV cars in Europe with configuration like that of Smart cars and operating like Lime scooters via phone apps.

Looks like GM and Rivian talks about it's investment was suspended with the agreement that
"Rivian founder R.J. Scaringe reportedly decided to keep options open for the company in the near future."

GM-Rivian Talk Broke Down
