Nobody but me uses a thunder jug? With the jug, cooler, and deck tank, why do you need to stop?

All these pictures, no semi.

You need to wonder if Elon really had the technology. Need to wonder if he mislead customers and shareholders. No semi.

For some reason I don't believe that you really don't want a semi. You just want to troll Elon. Regardless, it will be here as soon as he can make enough batteries and he has plans to triple battery production in the next 12 months. The way Tesla sales are taking off that still might no be enough.

I think the main reason people like to troll Elon is that it was being said that the semi would be here as soon as he can make enough batteries and he plans to triple battery production- three years ago. I think the real reason for the semi not being in production yet is lack of real demand. Electric semis and other vehicles are the future, no doubt. But Tesla's main attraction is that they are fast, techy, sexy playtoys for the wealthy, as evidenced by the Model S Plaid version that can run a 1/4 mile in the low 9s and costs north of $100,000 for an otherwise fairly generic four door luxury sedan. Fast, techy and sexy but totally worthless in the practical world. In trucking it's all about the bottom line, and until trucking companies know they can make more money using an electric truck over a diesel, the demand just won't be there.

Tesla wants to use the new 4680 batteries on the Model Y first and then the Cybertruck and Semi.

Tesla got snubbed by the white house in their recent EV promotional show. That is just plain wrong. Tesla is the one that pushed EV's mainstream, not the others.
