Tesla has a pretty good formula. Hopefully they can soon get their products into the under $30k bracket as that is what the country needs to really get widespread adoption.
Nobody is eating anyone's lunch... Tesla is the "Candyman" of evs, with the promise unimagined technical marvel. However, their business model is to relieve you of your children's inheritance when things need to be fixed down the road.
They may be selling many units now, but each unit that people "buy" (not lease =rent) will be so lacking in availability of aftermarket parts that Teslas will be selling for old Leaf prices in a few years.
Back to the topic, I want an EV SUV that is not just a bigger version of a 5 passenger Leaf... It should be a 6-7 passenger, three rows of passengers (lower to the ground than an SUV) in the style of the Mazda 5, which is a cross-over mini Minivan....
