The speculation about them selecting a battery supplier is completely ridiculous. They are 3 months from deliveries and the battery supplier has been selected for a long time and production has to ramping up soon. Suppliers for parts are selected at least a year in advance, if not more. Maybe there are minor design changes, but they are beyond the point of selecting suppliers for the initial deliveries.

I don't think it has to do with picking the supplier, but rather giving the supplier a test mule so the supplier can do final validation and ongoing testing.
