I realize this is kinda heavy handed but we discuss all the aspects of the car, superchargers, company and competitors and it makes me wonder what folks on the forum think in terms of 'when'. So, if this sentence is true than you have your year: Wow, this new 20xx _______________ (insert car company) looks to be a better car than the 20xx Tesla Model S. Here's the criteria that the competitors car must meet (my definition): 0. It must be able to make long distance travel as easy. In that it must support a charge time as quick and supported by a infrastructure across the USA 1. It must out accelerate and have a higher top speed 2. It must be as smooth off the line. It might have a transmission, but it must be as smooth 3. It must be aesthetically pleasing to a large percentage of buyers, inside and out, or in the same ballpark. Subjective I know, but looks go a long way 4. It must have near the cargo space 5. It must have a lower center of gravity than all other ICE sedans 6. It must have at least the range of the lowest offering from Tesla in that model year 7. It must have over the air updates to the software While there are other things that I love about the car that are not on the list, I think this is the top.
