Now its true that Tesla favored MT with better early access. But its also true there is no remote competitor. And in retrospect if Model 3 is the smashing share stealing commercial success it looks likely to be, MT will look stupid for not picking it. I can't think of a competitor. The Bolt is not in any way a competitor- econo box styling and lack of pre orders and lack of comperable tech and quite apparent lack of sincerity on the part its maker rule it out. If MT wants to acknowlede the electric clarity or new Prius it as the following year to do it in. To match the Model 3 for worthiness for the recognition this year I think they'd need a regular look, regular cost pure electric Camry or Accord. A lot of people forget Tesla's first vehicle beyond the original roadster was a Model Y type SUV as the electric Toyota RAV 4.
