History isn't as clear cut as "Tesla did it and everyone followed"
Well I didn't buy FSD. The lane following thing is scary enough for me!
and tbh, I think door to door might be somewhere in the future ... in the distant future, but that really it's the wrong road to go down (no pun intended). I think a better way would have been to classify roads as FSD capable and have statutory requirements for the maintenance of those roads with standards for the upkeep of markings and signage etc. The roads would have regular transponders installed as would the cars travelling on them so that everything could "talk" to everything else. In the UK, maybe start with the Motorway system, then expand to the A roads. It would give the technology time to mature as well as giving the motoring public the chance to get used to a car driving itself
I also think the other manufacturers had enough resources to put a toe in the EV water early on, just in case, but weren't really expecting anything to come of it and arguably made a half-hearted product. Now some manufacturers are positioning themselves as EV contenders or even leaders in the field where previously they did everything they could to kill off the technology. That doesn't sit well with me
So really more like Tesla did and everyone else was dragged kicking and screaming behind them
