Interesting, for me, that they are building Vanilla version first.  Tesla's approach of highest-value, first, seems to make good business sense ... but maybe running the line for volume and least-complex build also makes sense; gets more cars out there, so more "told all my mates how great it is" PR

My interest is in what the actual, real world, range is at 75 MPH on the motorway. Not much seems to have challenged Tesla's 7-year-old Model-S as yet, let alone the more frugal Model-3. Price comparison with Tesla also of interest to me ... VW (I think?) reporting today that they have issues with battery supply.

Sorry, should have been more specific (was too lazy to look up the article to get the facts ... Sad )

Samsung cannot deliver what they promised.  Its not a huge percentage of VW requirement ... but its causing VW to re-think if they should build a battery factory.

Actually, maybe that is a good thing ... LOTS of battery factories needed (if total car production will become battery), so more companies need to build more battery factories.
