What it’s really shown is how good at marketing Musk is. They’ve developed a luxury EV which is being sold as a competitor to IC cars where range isn’t really a factor. A study of sales patterns shows most Tesla’s are involved in city commutes or other driving patterns with easy rapid charge availability. They’ve also developed an entry level EV which they have MASSIVE problems with. This was supposed to be their bread and butter... They just can’t build the Model 3 (hitting 10% of target due to chronic parts and line problems) and have very deep plant problems in addition. Tesla Inc has a nett-loss burn rate of $1bn p.a. as of last month’s data. It’s not a viable business in its own right. In all seriousness, look at Nissan. I know their EVs are boring but they’re the biggest by volume and the furthest ahead by development of the Big 5 in EV. Leaf Gen. 2 launches soon and has already taken 10,000 units in pre- orders just for Europe. That’s incredible when you consider Leaf sells around 20,000 per year currently. Nissan reckon they can shift 60-70k pa of them which puts it into Mini One territory (or Tesla’s entire plant capacity). That’s progress. In other news, e-Golf is making big strides too.
