Spotted a @Rivian R1T pickup truck in the wild yesterday on my run. Then a few miles later, came across a second Rivian! Very cool. #rivian ImageImageImage
Have been super tempted by @Rivian as we're looking for an EV SUV when our lease comes due later this year. Love the look and range of the Rivian RIS SUV. But no lease option and I think the five seater will take longer to arrive than the seven seater.
Top of my short list right now is the @FiskerInc Ocean, if deliveries make it by the end of the year. Looks great, love the range and the "Flexee Lease" return whenever you want is super attractive #fisker

Tesla's price may seem out of whack today. The P/E Ratio is insane, right?

But Amazon had similar P/E ratios back in 2014 and 3X higher in 2012. Look at where $AMZN is today.

$TSLA is my #1 stock because I am looking 5+ years out from today and basing my investment on that. Many people aren't doing that. Many people are looking at current or trailing earnings and comparing them to other vehicle makers.

And yes, I do fully expect there to be some major price pullback -- maybe even a short 30 to 50% drop in $TSLA price at some point, but over the long run, I think it goes way up.

UAW preparations towards the EV disruption

Interesting interview. They realize LOTS of jobs will be lost, and are taking steps.

A few gems here
Previously UAW tried to stall EV penetration (see GM labor deal), now they realize battle is lost and are dealing with it.

Last year they made a plan... some steps are logical, some delusional.

FD: I am not against organized work. It can be important when done right.
The baseline for their plan is that 30% of jobs will be lost.

What's interesting is number is taken from OEM's assessments - so AMERICAN OEMs STILL DON'T GET IT!

ElonMusk diz que #Tesla #pickup truck terá preço inicial de menos de $50K.
Terá todas as funções de uma #caminhonete normal como a popular #Ford F-150 (preço médio de ~$47K), e performance comparável à de um #Porsche 911 (~$110K).


#ElonMusk disse também que a foto teaser liberada à alguns meses mostra a parte da frente da caminhonete, e que a mesma tem um design futurístico e não se parece nada com uma caminhote convencional.

Mais uma coisa: a pick-up #R1T da #Rivian terá preço inicial de $69K. Muitíssimo acima da picape da #Tesla.

A Rivian tem evitado comparação com a Tesla desde o início, dizendo que seus veículos são para aventureiros.
