PS yes, I know I'm Tesla biased. I see Tesla doing more for sustainable transport than most all "alt-fuel" companies combined. Big fan. Can't wait to see what Nissan has to compete. Or Toyota apparently.
Nissan is Nissan, they make money selling cheap cars where other companies lose money.
Nissan is Nissan, they lose money selling expensive cars, where other companies make money.
Nissan won't make a Tesla model 3 competitor, the Nissan will be significantly cheaper for 60kWh.
Tesla model 3 won't be a LEAF 2 competitor, The Tesla will have significantly more class than a Nissan.
Will Infiniti and Maxima lose sales to Tesla 3, yeah sure. But will Nissan Rogue lose sales to model 3? YOY, not likely.
Mitsubishi iMiEV was first, look at the arrows in its back.
Nissan LEAF was a first, then there were lots of wannbes (Focus EV, Golf EV, Spark EV, etc, etc,etc)
Tesla S was a first, and were still waiting for competitors to show up.
Tesla 3 will be a significant car, it will arrive where other companies make their profit
Nissan LEAF even LEAF 2, will not at the market where others make profit.
where is the F150 PHEV/EV?
where is the Corolla PHEV/EV?
Mirai ha ha ha
