CYbErTRuCk pushed back to 2022.

 

Need lots of cybrerchips for the cybertruck.  I hear they're in short supply right now.

Tesla (TSLA) surpasses all expectations of vehicle delivery numbers as the automaker announced the Q1 2021 production and delivery figures yesterday.

 

The Silicon Valley-based electric vehicle manufacturer surprised the world when CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to announce “Congrats Tesla Team on over 200,000 car built & delivered in Q2, despite many challenges!!”.

It’s a camper addition that fits in the Cybertruck’s bed and above its cab and it costs $135,000.

 

We’re only going to see more of these camper conversionsCybertruck Cyberlandr Camper Passed $50 Million In Pre-orders for the Tesla Cybertruck (along with many other add-ons), but will they be any better than this one by Loki? It’s called the Basecamp and it looks well thought out, well-appointed and it design matches the Cybertruck’s exterior style.

 

Loki wants $135,000 for it and you can order one with a $10,000 downpayment. It’s certainly steeply priced, but it does offer a wide array of features and it’s split into separate rooms/areas: mud room (that you can hose down with the built-in shower and it can also be converted into a table area), a lounge area, a kitchenette area and a bedroom area.

Is it just me, or does that 'camper' atop the attack vehicle look like a DMZ guard lookout?

GMC Hummer, Tesla Cybertruck, Ford F-150 BEV, Rivian R1T, Lordstown Endurance, and a Chevrolet EV pickup – these are some of the most important electric trucks announced so far. Prepare to add another one to the growing list of zero-emissions utes as Los Angeles-based Canoo has unveiled its electric workhorse.

 

Looking like a futuristic take on the cab-forward configuration, the new pickup echoes the design of the company's already revealed minivan and delivery vehicle. It rides on the same in-house platform and is chock-full of features. Chief of which is a configurable bed with a pull-out extension increasing length from six to eight feet (1.8 to 2.4 meters). Since the taillights are no longer visible from behind after opening the tailgate doors, Canoo has mounted a thin vertical strip of lights within the edges of the doors.

I wonder how many hours in the wind tunnel it took to craft something so aerodynamic...

Luckily for the human race, the chance of those blobs actually going into production is about as high as Nikola’s.

Starting in 2022, Apple's biggest iPhone assembler Foxconn will begin building electric vehicle plants to help offset the slowing smartphone industry.

The Taiwanese company seeks to build factories in the United States, Thailand, and possibly in Europe too. Foxconn expects to supply components for EV startups and accelerate production.

"Our plans are to begin mass production in the U.S. and Thailand respectively in 2023," Foxconn Chairman Young Liu told investors in an earnings call. "Other than in the U.S. and Thailand, we are also in talks with possible locations in Europe too as part of our global EV footprint strategy."

Some analysts say that we are seeing one of the first appreciating assets for a car that isn’t an antique or collector’s edition vehicle. That asset is a Tesla. Teslas hold their value, that’s for sure, and many used Teslas are gaining value upon trade-in.

 

With the popularity and strong demand of the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y, the new car prices of Tesla models are increasing. It seems likely that this trend will continue as Tesla catches up with demand from customers, and even afterwards, as Tesla technology innovations generate even more excitement about being part of the Tesla family and as more “Full Self Driving” features roll out.

There’s such a shortage of new vehicles that dealerships are offering people full price, or more, to bring their vehicles back.

Everything from Fords to Toyotas are appreciating in value due to the vehicle shortage.

And look at Nissan Leafs. They’re holding value really well.

It’s an industry-wide thing. Tesla groupies need to settle down a little.

"Unprecedented" has become an overused word in the 14 months since the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic, altering life on so many levels, "but it's not out of place here. We've got used car values higher than we've ever seen them. We've got stories of people who bought a used truck or SUV a year ago that are worth more now," said iSeeCars.com's executive analyst, Karl Brauer. "Cars are a depreciating asset — at least they're supposed to be — but they haven't been for certain people."

Last month my dealer offered me a $15k premium over what I paid in January to buy my car back as he has buyers at $25 over, I asked what the wait would be for another and he said at least 18 months to 2 years.  

 

Heck Used Spyders and GT4's are listed at $30k premium over new. Even a used Tacoma is selling at more than new

 

Talking with one of the owners of a Ford dealership and he said they have never been more profitable than this last 6-9 months as every single vehicle being delivered is a sold order and they have no stock on their lots to pay carrying costs on. They are selling 2-3 year old lease returns in good condition for the same as new. This will shake up the car world as dealers realise they dont need to have 300-500 cars on their lots and they have a lot of unused real estate that will come onto the market for development
