There will come a time when what you’re describing will exist...major manufacturers offering excellent, reliable, well-built EV cars with ranges to compete with Tesla. VW is poised to do so. Audi and Porsche as well. Not sure about the Japanese or Korean brands. BMW is dragging it’s feet a little.If Toyota (or Lexus) had a comparable alternative to the Model 3 Tesla never would have heard of me. Which is disappointing because I really like the fact that my car was built in California. But the service is beyond dreadful so I would have no concerns about going back to a reliable Japanese brand if the option existed. But since the car is totally awesome I’ve just leaned to set my service expectations really low.
When that happens, the pressure will be on Tesla to improve.
I hope Tesla does improve. It feels good to buy an advanced American automobile.
