A lot of confidence in Tesla as it has done a competent EV in the Model 3 Performance with Track mode and Version 9 Auto Pilot- suspect as that starts to beat all the German makes at the track and starts to revive the self driving that a lot of people will realize this. Tesla will hit 10k Model 3s a week in the first half of next year then start with the 35K Model 3s still making 7K or so off each. Musk gave a time frame for the 25K Teslas. Beside Tesla also have a lot of faith in the Chinese all electric makes coming up and faith in the Sono motors concept and others like it, but none in the ICE makers. Pure corruption keeps them from getting the point. VW scaling its EVs back through 2025 in the US to 3 million total. All it will have is compliance car sales level Taycan. These people are idiots! Same with BMW- will have nothing before late 2022 or 2023 and this is when it only sold about 2 million globally and Tesla will soon be in range to sell 600K or so most of it coming out BMW's hide. Here is the thing, BMW will experience cancelled sales even if Tesla can't keep up with filling them because its firm prone increasingly garbage products will be seen not a cool or desirable anymore but as obsolete junk. Have to wonder what enables them to be so stupid, I think Trump admin may have made some promises but they are going to bet their future on the Trump admin when its not clear Trump will be able to stay in office or even that revelations won't trigger an early election scuttling Pence and the GOP? Note Canada just barred the mountain pipeline- that's a clue. Advice to Germany would be that US shouldn't have bailed out GM or Chrysler (2nd time) although it did zero out GM's stupid stock holders (thank you Obama) so Germany shouldn't bail out these fool companies when they begin to go under- just use you're safety net to bail out the workers only- only the workers but let these companies die because they deserve it. I see Tesla rising and given how stupid and recalcitrant the competition has been I doubt Musk and crew cut them any slack. Part of the problem is it is corruption that links these firms to the petrol retail chain, that is all they have been is a means to sell petrol and probably also further corruption based on how much petrol has to be subsidized coming at the expense of legitimate uses and how that gone on 75 years longer than it should have entailing all sorts of secrecy and supreme backwardness hence these ICE makers can't go back on their insularity.
