Tesla Receives Semi Truck Order Worth Up to $100 Million: Report

Looks to me like Tesla Semi vs Nikola is going to be kind of like Freightliner vs Peterbilt.   Volume production of decent quality truck vs smaller production of a decent quality truck that has a lot of hype attached giving it "cult-like" status for no real difference in quality or performance (Peterbilt).

I would take either one....!

I donít share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

Per Tesla's 4th Q and FY 2020 Update, "Tesla semi deliveries will also begin in 2021."  If that's the case, it would seem they will be producing those semis at one of their existing or currently-under-construction factories (as they have been indicating all along), not in a new unannounced imaginary gigafactory.

SpaceX says it is building a factory in Austin, Texas, to design systems that will help make satellite dishes, Wi-Fi routers, and other equipment for its Starlink satellite broadband network. The news comes from a job posting for an automation and controls engineer position flagged in a story Tuesday by local news channel KXAN.
