If one of Elon's intentions with Tesla was to accelerate the transition to EVs, then he has succeeded admirably so far. EVs have gone from maligned 'fringe' to almost 'mainstream' despite the huffing and puffing of all the nay-sayers and vested interests. It is one thing for 'Big Oil' to slam and ridicule Tesla, quite another to take on all the German manufacturers; Jaguar et al without pissing off a lot of 'important' people....... Ditto the manufacturers who have made (or will have to make) U-turns and are now openly saying that EVs are the way forward. And this will all still happen even if it is no longer driven by Tesla. Traditional car dealers must see where their future butter is going to come from and they can only fight a losing battle for so long.... So who will take up the Anti-EVs/Tesla (and others) mantle in the future? Governments are going to have a tough time dealing with this paradigm shift but surely will not be able to stop it - nor want to if it helps public health and environmental issues. Many businesses and industries will have to adapt quickly and become 'part of the solution' and not stay as 'part of the problem'................... Who or what will emerge as EVs' worst enemy in, say, 5-7 years?
