If the Model 3 is truly meant for the average car buyer, then why isn't it compared to the Camry, Accord, Civic, Elantra, Altima, Corolla... Why is it compared to entry level luxury cars? Is it just because of price? Shouldn't the comparison discussion be about the Model 3 being 5k more expensive than the above mentioned vehicles? BMW only sells about 75k 3-series every year, 400k of the Camry are sold. The 3Series is ranked 75th in cars sold for 2016. The A4 is 99th, the C-Class is 72nd. Those who want to drop 50k on a luxury car are more likely to buy the Model S IMHO. Every year 2 million people buy the average sedans I listed above... which tend to start under 30k and price up into the 40s with all options. I believe that 2 years from now when Tesla has sold several hundred thousand Model 3s, the biggest losers will be Toyota, Honda, etc, not BMW or Mercedes. Thoughts?
