Funny thing about that head start? Tesla doesn’t produce batteries. They are all made by Panasonic.Order book doesn't mean anything, It's not until they get the battery factory up and running in Georgia that matters. Until then we'll see huge wait times. GM has the same problem with the battery factory they're building in Tennessee. With the way labor shortages are right now I don't see then making deliveries any quicker than Tesla did at launch. For the record Tesla has a 9-year head start in scaled large battery production.
Eh, that makes it sound like they just called up Panasonic and ordered a bunch of batteries out of a catalog. Gigafactory Nevada is a joint venture in a Tesla building and the batteries were jointly designed by Tesla/Panasonic.Funny thing about that head start? Tesla doesn’t produce batteries.
