    These guys will never raise a dime. In two years their target specs will be so dismal that no one would ever buy their car.

    I'd say there's room for niche players, but these guys don't seem to bring anything new to the table. Without anything new or interesting, there's no niche, and barriers to entry are high.

    It might make more sense to focus on one aspect. Develop some component or technology that would be useful for EVs (or cars in general) that make them better in some way and try to sell that.

    I don't mind just another hundred mile car. I think it would be great if all automakers offered one at a reasonable price. Just that these guys aren't an automaker and have a very low chance of ever becoming one.

    Yeah, I guess it's just me being selfish since I can't make it with a sub-100 mile range. So far Tesla is the only company at the table that can meet my needs. Even though I have lots of TSLA stock, I would rather there be other companies at the table.
