Depends on what your view of overtake is. Will some present auto giant be selling more EVs than Tesla? Virtually a certainty. The old adage, “1st impressions are lasting” fits Tesla to a tee. Tesla came 1st and fast out of the gate but was,is and will likely remain for some time, a rich man’s car. Almost every car company is better suited and better positioned to produce smaller, cheaper electric cars for average working people. Average people do not need 75 or 80% of the gizmos on Teslas. They need a cheap vehicle that will transport them 5 to 8 hundred miles a month to work and shopping for their necessities. Most people talking about “range” seem to ignor the fact that tens of millions of average people every day pop into the gas bars and grab $10 to $20 of gas because it is all they can afford and they need it to carry them back and forth to work for a week. What the truck stops and travel centres along the Interstates are doing is of little interest to them. And neither is hearing about Teslas• options and supercharger network. A quick view on charging tells me that Teslas• vaunted charging network is a quickly fading “myth”. The line from the old movie “if you build it they will come” was never more true than as it fits charging stations. You can put 10 or 12 charging posts at the end of 10 or 12 existing parking spots at any McDs or coffee shop or any other place that present day cars park. This will be a hell of a lot easier than getting approval for and building gas stations with their disaster in the making underground tanks and pumps. When the public charging posts become (and they will) more numerous than gas pumps, the average people I mentioned above will be popping in to grab a coffee and $5 or $10 of quick charge to last the next 150 miles. Ballyhooing about driving $65,00 and up cars around the country and pulling into “for us only” Tesla chargers is pretty much an ego trip for many Tesla drivers. Will you pull into McDonalds and plug in beside a Tesla with your $20,000 V W or Kia? Sure, but you park beside Audi’s, BMWs and Cadillacs now. The point is, there is really nothing to overtake! As I have said before, when the big auto, big oil and governments decide it is time for us “unwashed masses” to have electric cars as the main form of transport, every other car maker will be “CHARGING” to the trough to grab their share of the riches. Tesla hasn’t yet been able to produce enough of it’s high end cars to make a profit on each one and Elon cannot get his vaunted $30,000 car to market and the inside word is that not many will be made at that price but will run to 45 or 50 grand with options they will force on you. Has Elon done a great job of “forcing” the others to get off their butts and start fighting big oil and corrupt politicians who have been manipulated by them? Oh yes, very definitely but he will not be the Henry Ford that makes a Volkswagen (which as you know literally translates as “ a wagon for the people”). Overtake Tesla? Nothing to overtake! 15 or 20 car manufacturers can build a car and throw in a host of computer controlled gadgets as they already do but how soon will they decide to start building a “wagon for the people”??
