Anything that Alpine does is going to be extremely low volume, especially in the US. It has a small assembly plant in Dieppe, France and that will likely be the source of all Alpines unless a miracle occurs and it needs more capacity.
As long as Alpine keeps its ambition modest, it can succeed. But I mean really modest. Like only 1,000 cars a year in North America at the end of a 5-year effort.
I think Tesla would be better off working with I-CAR, which sets the top standards for vehicle repairs in the US. It actually certifies body repair shops, so it’s more than just a research company.
Great point about Cat and Komatsu.
Thanks for the update and I truly hope I can come visit your facility.
BG, we don’t have any update to add. It just looks like Ford is running into software issues like everyone else.
