So VW has opened pre-orders for the ID 3 and by all accounts the special edition version is doing well. I have to be honest, I have a personal soft-spot for VW, I was heartbroken about Diesel-Gate which was a big reason I bought a Tesla ultimately. When I was a kid, everyone had posters of Porches, Lambos and Ferraris on their walls, but I wanted a Golf GTI (a pragmatist even at 8 years old). Funnily enough, the car I traded in for my Model 3 Performance was a Golf GTI, and I still think it is one of the most driveable/practical cars you can buy today, and you have to spend a LOT to get something better in that class. Anyway, personal feelings aside, one has to think that VW is probably going to be Tesla's biggest competitor in the near to mid-term. They have loyal customers in Europe (I'm originally from the UK), they can afford to position bost mass-market cars under the VW brand, as well as up-market models via Porsche and Audi using the same underlying technology, so plenty of synergies, and they're the only car company who has taken building a charging network seriously, although in the US that's all part of the diesel scandal payback. But still, they're doing it. In autonomy, they may not be in the game yet, but I would not under-estimate their ability to join the party with Tesla and help grow the market. Personally I think it's great that the world's 2nd larget manufacturer of cars is going "all-in" on electric.
