Chinese companies are rushing to put together electric vehicles of all types for their local market and the Chinese market has all the reasons in the world to support these efforts. Urban China will be quick to adopt these technologies in personal and public transportation creating very scaleable opportunities. As these companies scale they will reap benefits of lower costs and refocus on quality standards required to enter foreign markets. We may laugh at the first attempts of Chinese EV manufacturers in the U.S. Much as we did the Korean Hyundai and Kia efforts initially, but these companies will adjust to become prominent players. The short-sightedness of the "Big Three" and their failure to take alternative fuels seriously will ultimately cause their end at the hands of the Chinese. The U.S. economy will experience a staggering blow as a result of the complete failure of the U.S. Auto industry and its suppliers and complementary/supporting businesses. Tesla's head start and vision, along with their spot in the premium auto space will help them persevere. Their biggest growth opportunities in 10-20 years may just be supplying batteries to the handful of U.S. factories producing Chinese vehicles. I brainstormed this on a whim to start a discussion and would love to hear all thoughts, positive and negative. Let's not make it personal it is just a discussion starter.
