With regard to Nissan's producing high-end BEVs, even if Nissan produced an exact M3 it would never sell at Tesla's present M3 volume.
The same would occur for Chevy or Ford. The M3 with a Tesla name is a unique/cool status product, being a BEV is secondary, and that
aspect is not easily duplicated.

I think only the e-Mach Mustang has a chance and it will need to up spec a bit between now and Launch.

Doubt the Mach-E has much of chance to reach Tesla numbers. Two major drawbacks I see are:
1. Autopilot, no frequent updates to eventual goal of FSD.
2. Dealer network, who will make things difficult. For example: mark up the price.

if this does not say something about the state of Nissan......

Infiniti dealer can't provide electric car to a loyal customer so they re-sell a Model 3 to the customer.

I don't imagine his next purchase is going to be an Infiniti.

"drastic" spending cuts? What they really need to do is maintain cash flow even it if means going into debt. This requires them to put out something that will sell. The EV arena is on the cusp of an explosion. When we consider many areas have yet to be touched especially in the under $50,000 price point, they have options.
