Really? Nah. Sure, I'd like Tesla to sell the long range version for $25,000 before the federal tax credit, with a 30% profit margin, and a hud, and an infinite supply of cheeseburgers in the frunk, but that ain't gonna happen. Looking at this objectively, Tesla hit it out of the park. The "40"kWh Model S premiered in 2013 with a range of 149 miles and a price tag of $58,570. In less than five years Tesla has followed that up with a *$45,200 Model 3 that can apparently go 310 miles before it needs more juice. This was after every other major automaker said that there wasn't enough demand for EVs, and that a mass-market EV couldn't succeed. A tip of the hat to Tesla, and a wag of the finger to everyone else. *A shade under $43,000 in 2013 dollars.
