I own BYD stock.

In this YouTube, at the 2:55 mark, BYD builds an EV 'platform' that it is licensing to other automakers. One of which is Toyota.

I also own TSLA, which is said to be several YEARS ahead of the other automakers, and indeed, the legacy automakers have been roundly ridiculed for NOT having paralleled TSLA in EV R&D over the last few years.

BUT, If Toyota (or GM, or F, etc) can just buy a 'platform' and drop a 'cabin' on top of it... is TSLA really that far ahead?

BYD has a 'revolutionary' BLADE battery design. TSLA is reportedly working with BYD to use the Blade Battery in future TSLAs.


and some very brief comments:
12:00 mark, taxi design is discussed.
15:30, delivery vehicles, then SUV, Buses...

ralph is jones'n for a CamperVan EV... and envisions some 'campervan' company buying an EV platform and 'dropping' a 'campervan cabin' on it. Viola! Some solar panels, and a wind turbine, and we'd see 'boondockers' galore.
