    Several shareholders asked Daimler management about Daimler's plans to build an answer to Tesla. Of course Daimler management says everything is going to be oke.

    Google the article title to avoid the paywall.

    I have been saying for years that the high end (mostly German) automakers should be very concerned. Surely every Model S and X sold is lost sale for them.
    The 3 is a different story. Assume only a 1/3 of those orders are filled. That is 100,000 lost sales for Mazda, GM, Ford, etc.
