even though I am not yet a Tesla owner I decided that I have my last purchase of an ICE car behind me.
And I thing therein lies the problem of traditional car companies. From what I read on these forums it feels as if I am not alone. Once one has experienced the beauty of an electric car one is hopelessly lost for the ICE business model. This is why tesla is a disruptive business to traditional car companies.
If my hypothesis holds true then every buyer of a MS will mean several $100k in future revenue loss to ICE car manufacturers.
I think there might be the odd MS owner that will think about owning another ICE car for investment purposes, for historic or novelty value or as race cars but no longer are ICE cars an option for daily use.
Anybody out there that owns a MS and will ever buy another ICE car for daily use? Or are you in the same camp?
