I wonder how much talk happened at Tesla concerning production of E-delivery vans just for the fleet market? That seems like it would be a big money spinner. They already have production facilities and experience, unlike Rivian or other startups.Don't be surprised that the 2022 Transit gasoline version will be a limited build out with the assembly plant having to possibly retool to build the E-Transit so there may be a time when NO gas powered Transits will be built especially if Amazon comes to Ford to build out Transits from the plant if the Rivian production is not what they are expecting to get to replace the gas powered vehicles in their fleet. I had already seen some of the things on the E-Transit but had to stay quiet until the debut of it.
Just completed watching the debut of the E-Transit. What did you think?
If you missed it, here is the link to view it.
Fleets will use the higher cost as depreciation/business expense, so I doubt that would impact sales much if at all. I don't think there will be very many personal use buyers.There was no mention of the van initial cost. If too high the van will be difficult to sell no matter how much better it is for many users.
Looks like a home run if price is right.
Watched with subdued excitement. Went out to the back fourty in spouses Transit, placed paper packet of popcorn into microwave, turned on electric cube-shaped space heater, put the tea kettle on for a cupper, sat back on 10 way electric swivel passenger seat with ottoman for comfy viewing and pulled it up on wireless 15 inch notebook. Dog likes to lounge there also...Fleets will use the higher cost as depreciation/business expense, so I doubt that would impact sales much if at all.
