Tesla again rocks the automotive world - other automakers must be spinning.
The Model S outsells all other cars in its class while becoming the best selling BEV. The Model 3 reveal shatters reservations records for most other products, not to mention cars. All this spurs just about every other major automaker to try to throw a BEV into their lineup, with few able to move fast.
Now, just as automakers are coming to grips with committing to future BEV programs and finally showing renderings or concepts, Tesla surprises almost everyone with full autonomy in the near future. They are so far ahead of everyone else, it is shocking.
Personally I find the rate in which they've been able to accomplish all this truly amazing. In less than ten years, from Roadster to Model S to Level 5 Autonomy capable hardware in all cars, including the Model 3. Elon Musk laid out his first secret master plan for all to see, and by God I think he'll do it.
