Deepening Crisis!
This was posted yesterday (a reference to something big from Tesla today) :
Apple having an event on 4/20....

Perhaps Apple is announcing some kind of a partnership with Tesla today? Stranger things have happened.
The rumors of Toyota/Tesla coming before Toyota announcing 25 new EVs seems suspicious too. A tesla partnership with either company would be massive.

I just can't see Toyota partnering up with Tesla. My gut tells me we'd sooner see Toyota, Honda, and Subaru join forces in a consolidated EV tech push before we'd see any of those three partner with Tesla.


But then, I never thought TSLA would get close to $900 in 2021 either and I was very wrong about that, soooooo....

I'm still thinking something might be happening with Toyota. I can't say I know, but it seems that Toyota is a lot more reluctant to lie than say, VW. So, when Toyota says they will have 25 BEV models by 2026, one has to wonder how is that possible? All those batteries, drive trains, battery management and operating systems, OTAs etc. Where are they going to come from? I am no expert, but I get the sense that Toyota, at this point in time, is not a front runner In BEV systems development. SO........JMO.

Edit: Sorry. I guess I should have ready the preceding thread on the subject. I could have just "liked".

The issue with the 25 new EVs in four years is the internal resistance at Toyota to EVs. Unless they have an outside partner that's pro-EV I don't see it happening--at least not on a large scale. I doubt that they will partner with Tesla because the last partnership didn't pan out. My understanding is that it was mainly due to Toyota wanting design changes that Tesla didn't have the capacity for. I would expect the same problem is there today because Tesla can sell all the cars it makes with their own designs. Adding third party designs would just slow things up.
