From another forum where people were discussing the Model 3 launch. This is one of the more "interesting" and funny anti-Tesla comments I've seen in a while. I don't even know how to respond to this. "There are no barriers to entry for the oil companies to set up recharging stations at any time. I see no particular reason that Tesla, or anyone else, can maintain a monopoly on that business. Electric "refueling" will become a fungible commodity, just like gasoline is today. That means most people are going to be looking for the best combination of convenience and price, and not much else, in their selection of locations to refuel. Tesla will be forced to open their Supercharger stations to other electric vehicle brands to keep them viable, and won't be able to restrict Tesla owners from refueling anywhere they want. The threat to the oil companies and Tesla's Superchargers is the ability to refuel the car at home overnight in your own garage. Gonna be difficult to compete with that unless they give away the fuel. I think Tesla won't survive at the end of the day. It either goes under because of competiton, like so many other automotive start-ups, or Elon is successful in selling Tesla to one of the mainstream manufacturers that is willing to pay up to jump-start their own electric vehicle program (Fiat-Chrysler?).
