My educated guess is this will be an initially built Chinese modified BYD T3 with a range of 186 miles and acceleration of around 7 seconds. Chinese automakers need a channel into the USA market for sales and manufacturing and they do not want to go through dealerships or the big three so why not partner up with Tesla. I also think this statement along with Tesla not being union made may be another reason Tesla was not invited to the Whitehouse on August 5th for Biden’s “Big Three” automakers to join force EV announcement. Eventually, I would not be surprised to see this manufactured in Tesla’s new Texas plant.
