You missed the point there; there's competition among brands, but also competition among dealers with the classic dealer model. With Tesla, you just have competition among brands, which is less competition overall for a better price.I didn't say anything about competition, of course it's good. Tesla in fact does have competition - no one has to buy one so your reference to a utility or ISP isn't valid. You can buy cars of various types anywhere. I spoke only to the online no haggle price.
