    That is what Ross Tessien describes as being likely to happen in this article:

    Tesla last month was close to Camry sales and Camry sales are down apparently because of Model 3. So very good chance before the end of the year Tesla can over take Toyota outselling the top ICE car.

    I think this is one of the best articles I've ever seen on Tesla. It shows that ICE may be crumbling faster than many people think. It means that soon the public will see the Tesla shorts for the fraudulent criminal idiots they generally are.

    Full panic in ICE land as there is actually a fool Republican senator trying to propose not only removing the EV tax credits but penalizing EV use with a further tax. Now we see the true colors coming forward. I wonder how far that kind of idiocy will go. That to me seems like the beginning of a breach of the peace. Its the same kind of logic Trump had where he was saying he was going to force people to buy coal. Its pure duress out in the open. You can see this is the stupid failure of GE because it doubled down on loser natural gas bs.

    Public is going to have to start asking for the outright end of petrol subsidies and confiscation of any claimed phony petrol profit. Need to nationalize that BS too to keep it in the ground- we paid off these useless rent seekers decades ago, they are paid in full and now us a huge debt.

    But lets understand why its destined to be the best car in the US

    Run a million miles almost no maintenance
    Out perform any stock BMW and almost all tuned BMWs on track and straight away.
    7x more efficient that a Camry
    No more gas station
    Much lower cost of operation
    Soon will have Tesla network
    Gets better over time
    Zero emisions
    Huge savings between operating costs and fuel savings
    Just a better car in pretty much every way
    Helps cut dependence on enslaving fossil fuels.

    And as Ross points out there is a huge knock on effect where people don't want obsolete ICE garbage depressing the sales of ICE garbage, they hold out for electrics, and they recycle old ICE further denying sales. An even more massive knock to ICE will come with Tesla network and automated EVs.

    178,795 Toyota Camrys were sold in the first 6 months of 2018. Over 350,000 can be expected to be sold for the entire year. Tesla is finally reaching its production target of 5,000 Tesla 3s per week. Without expanding its factory, Tesla cannot manufacture any more per week. 5,000 x 52 weeks = 260,000 per year. There are a lot of other sedans, not just the Camry. Honda Civic 176,242 (first 6 months 2018), Corolla 149,805, Accord 138,290 will all outsell the Tesla 3. This ignores the fact that American car buyers have been moving away from sedans to SUVs and trucks.

    Tesla is a remarkable company, but has not yet demonstrated that it can make money. Tesla cars are certainly sexy and appealing. However, the Tesla 3, which is now being built, stickers for $50,000 before tax credits. If I were wealthy, I certainly would have a Tesla.

    Electric cars normally pollute far less than even the most efficient ice hybrid, but they are do not have zero emissions.

    You're missing the point it Model 3 is the the 4th best selling car in the US last month by the end of the year it should have a month were it becomes the best selling car in the US and it may hold onto that and not let it go. The sales of those cars are all down because of the Model 3 in particular and because of electrics- read the article. That is the thesis. The idea that SUV and trucks amount to something is BS is that was just a auto fossil fuel emissions scam based on the foot print line of lies its not because people like these vehicles more or Americans like them more it was because of fossil fuel collusion that the structurally bankrupt US ICE makers as part of the petrol retail chain cannibalized the value of their other vehicles (traditionally preferred to harder to park friction lined SUV/Trucks) to put more material value into those higher fuel consuming vehicles. But the model 3 is a better value period and that is why its sales are hugely up against ICE cars and ICE cars are down. Its also one idiot Republican prostitute senator has introduced a bill to try to punish people for buying EVs vice ICE cars by actually making them pay a financial penalty- this is called panic on the part of the corrupt group of criminals.
