If Tesla cannot produce the car in some volume rather quickly, there may be quite a few defectors to other brands.
Valid points! But there's still a real question how well a BEV (~ 200 miles) at $35K - $40K will be the turning point
for BEV acceptance. The Model 3 appeal results from other factors, e.g. status, which is one of its major appeals
versus functionality/overall costs for the typical ICEV consumer. That's the major volume market, i.e. a transition
vehicle which is "transparent" overall to the consumer, e.g. today's hybrid.
Leaf SL MY 9/13: 64K miles, 49 Ahrs, 5.1 miles/kWh (average), L2 charges to 100% > 1000, max battery temp < 95F, min discharge point > 20 Ahrs
