Musk canceled another variant, Model S Plaid+, which would have had a 33% higher driving range than the Model S Plaid and used advanced battery technology, known as 4680 cells. "The Model S Plaid is definitely intended to help reduce the migration of current Tesla owners out of Tesla," said Ed Kim, vice president at consultancy AutoPacific. Musk has called the Model S Plaid "the fastest accelerating car ever."

Two years ago, Kardashian West's younger half-sister, Kylie Jenner, was named the "youngest self-made billionaire ever" in a Forbes cover story. "I really didn't get it, because she is 'self-made' — we are all 'self-made,'" Kardashian West told Refinery29 at the time. Further, calling Kardashian West self-made doesn't diminish someone else's self-made title. Forbes pegs Kardashian West's self-made score at a 7: "Self-made who got a head start from wealthy parents and moneyed background." Sure, Kardashian West could have invested her inheritance in the stock market and not worked another day in her life.

Since 2017, Infiniti has seen its sales decline by 50%, one of the steepest plummets in recent automotive history. Kargar is charged with reviving a brand whose sales have dropped 50% in the past few years. "It's kind of become a price brand, as opposed to a brand that people might lust after," Kim said. "And with a premium luxury brand, value and price is not really the image you want to associate with." But a premium brand must feel superior in various categories—including driving dynamics, material quality, performance, design, and owner experience—to justify its price and positioning.

Three experts told Business Insider the wave of pre-revenue EV startups going public through SPAC mergers reminds them of the late 1990s dot-com bubble. This year, at least seven EV companies have gone public through a SPAC or announced plans to do so. The same could happen with new EV companies, the three experts said. Starting a car company isn't easyThe newly public EV startups will face a number of challenges. Nikola, which is building hydrogen- and battery-powered semi trucks, went public in June after merging with the SPAC VectoIQ.
