    If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I guess Tesla should be flattered...

    Electric Mercedes opens German assault on Tesla

    Of interest to me:
    Ford? Really? That would be good news if true. The VW/EA fraud settlement DCFC charge station effort in the USA sure hasn't amounted to much thus far.

    *sigh*

    Just offering a BEV doesn't make it competitive against Tesla. Not sure why this is so difficult for the media to understand. Not to mention that, as BEVs go, the market is HUGE...another thing that seems to be overlooked.

    "The market for upscale electric cars is Tesla’s to lose, with sales of its entry-level Model 3 sedan expected to reach about 50,000 cars this year and almost double that in 2019"

    bwahaha

    Yes, I was amused by that blatant mistake.

    They also fail to mention these other companies only plan to make 20,000 EV's a year. Hardly dents the total worldwide EV demand. Though they may take some share away from Model S/X. At the premium price they are at for what you get in size/range/performance, I can't see them taking sales away from Model 3.
