It was good that you were able to get the switch back accomplished, but by now you have learned that IT WAS NOT A SIGN that they were in the process of finalizing production schedule. Recent announcement used the pandemic as cover for the exact causes of the production delay. Maybe in a year or so the facts will surface and we will learn what pebble jammed up the wheel of progress.
Not sure what you mean by “exact”, but the statement from RJ was very clear that there are many factors…

“There are many reasons why our production ramp is taking longer than expected. The cascading impacts of the pandemic have had a compounding effect greater than anyone anticipated. Everything from facility construction, to equipment installation, to vehicle component supply (especially semiconductors) has been impacted by the pandemic. Beyond these unforeseen challenges, launching three new vehicles while setting up a multi-vehicle manufacturing plant is a complex orchestra of coordinated and interlinked activities where small issues can translate into ramp delays.”
