I meant to post this here:

It is not hard to see the massive effect that the Tesla Model 3 on the rest of the automotive industry.

It is the safest car. Ever.

The Model S is the next safest, and the Model X the next after that. All 3 are in another league from the rest of the vehicles being built today.

Electric cars are about 4X as efficient as the average ICE car. They are less expensive to drive; even with cheap gas.

Electric cars require virtually no regular maintenance.

The high performance electric cars, are supercars - or hypercars - at a fraction of the cost of those with ICE's. The Tesla Roadster 2 looks to redefine high performance.

The Rivian R1T will accelerate 0-60MPH in 3 seconds (or less?). That is a 5 seat pickup truck ... Oh, and it has full torque vectoring, and it is about 2X the efficiency of a Prius.
Sincerely, Neil
