On the plus side, Tesla pushing their costs/margins down should force other manufacturers to discount their EVs to compete, and the ultimate loser in that situation are ICEs.

A long way to go for what? You seem to have a goal for cars to switch from ICE to EVs. Car manufacturers have a goal of making money.

Tesla is pushing their prices up, not down. They just raised prices on the Model Y by $1000 and the rest of their models will get a 3% price increase April 1st.
