    first time I've seen a SA article that doesn't appear to deliberately throw doom and gloom shade at Tesla.

    Although, perhaps this is really just a backhanded way of saying the EV market will never take off, and that big oil ICEs will rule forever.

    Good article. I have no idea how BMW and the others can provide a competitive EV - matching or exceeding Tesla's Model 3 features for same price, in the near term. They will certainly lose some market share before they get serious. If they do manage to produce a competitive car in the next couple of years, how would they build sufficient quantities? But, I bet BMW's September 3-series EV announcement involves an accelerated production timeline.
