On YouTube, In Depth, Now you know, Tesla Lies.
He thinks Tesla have a solid state battery and, if so, a lot of companies will be very unhappy.

To clarify: Sandy is sceptical that anyone will produce a viable solid-state battery in the coming year or two. He's seen a lot of claims that turn out to be false.

He believes that the upcoming Tesla battery day (scheduled for September, but covid may cause it to be postponed again) could be to announce the million-mile battery, which he thinks they already have in their pocket; or a 50-50 chance of a solid-state battery.

Tesloop, a tesla car-hire service, have some interesting experiences with extremely high usage of Teslas:

https://www.tesloop.com/blog/2018/7/16/tesloops-tesla-model-s-surpasses-400000-miles-643737-kilometers

They estimate their maintenance cost has been 5-7 US cents per mile. Bear in mind that many of the repairs have been done under the 5-year warranty, or as goodwill, and these cars are doing around 100,000 miles a year.

Agreed, I got slightly carried away there.
In a previous video he said that the reason that battery day got cancelled so often was because of the Osborne effect. That is, you tell the public of a game-changing development in the future and the result is that everyone defers their order, possibly leading to insolvency.
