freak out other car manufacturers too soon

Too late :)

Although Tesla's sales aren't yet at the same level of the major auto manufacturers, Tesla is climbing quickly. GM has seen year over year declines for 5 years. I truly believe the only reason all other manufacturers are rushing out BEVs is because of Tesla. GM had an EV in 1995. NINETEEN NINETY FIVE. Twenty Six years ago (sorry, had to repeat that :). And what did they do with that fantastic opportunity? Squandered it. Now they're playing catch-up like the rest of them.

The problem for all the incumbents is... now Tesla is *years* ahead of them. From my observations, Tesla will stay far ahead of them. Perhaps I'm wrong though. Either way, we win!! :)

I'm not understanding the 'confusion' about the manual, the sales data, and other pertinent info about the car. Before I ordered mine online, I looked at the manual for the M3 from the Tesla site. All my questions were answered. I agree with others' posts that Tesla is not like other auto makers and can't be compared to them in how they do business. It's just an awesome car! o_O
