GM Keeps a Big Promise to Close the Gap with Tesla and Ford

In the automotive industry, the most important thing is timing. 

Let’s consider the timetable given by car manufacturers when they announce and present a new model. Basically, when do they intend to start production and on what date do they envisage the first deliveries. 

This calendar is important for potential customers because it tells them when they will receive the vehicles ordered, which can allow them to plan in the meantime. 

The schedule has taken on even greater importance due to the shortage of chips and the disruption to the supply chain caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. One of the criticisms often made of Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla  (TSLA) – Get Tesla Inc Report, is that he never respected all the schedules given when presenting the company’s vehicle models.
