Rivian did the exact same thing.Has anyone seen any preproduction factory test fleets out on the public road for months, in all conditions, similar to what we saw with @Aloppen and his team? No. Mostly static displays at special events. These first 30 hand built CT’s will likely be “sold” to Tesla employees w/ NDA’s - possibly w/ “mfgr” plates, and serve as the PPO test fleet equivalent, just like Tesla did w/ the Model 3 in 2017. Elon may be currently buried in Twitter hell, but his unique smoke-and-mirrors publicity techniques live on in Teslaland.
