Tesla 2021 Fix for Cold Weather EV Range

Tesla new 2021 Model 3 will only lose about 13-19% range in cold weather versus 40% range reduction in older models. This will help Tesla increase sales in Canada and Northern Europe.

There is further speculation that legacy automakers will try to get a deal to purchase Tesla skateboards. Skateboards are all functional parts in an electric car except the body and the seats.

A skateboard deal might look like VW or GM paying Tesla $4 billion in upfront licensing and providing cap expenditure of $10 billion to co-build five Gigafactories and then paying 10,000 per skateboard produced. They might also split the fee for the FSD autopilot.
