I imagine that a small cheap wildly available car made by Tesla would be a success. A car in the dimension of a "VW up" or of the order of a "Renault Clio" would attract customers of lower income segments and thereby help electric cars to take over the market. More electric cars would entail the building of more charging stations and hence increase the comfort and advantages of driving an electric car. There are already small and economic e-cars purchasable but I guess they are not design marvels (i guess aesthetics shouldn't really matter but they do) like Tesla cars. Furthermore a cheap car for ordinary people would boost Tesla's image (it would establish them as a full grown car company which sells a wide range of car types (limousine, suvs)) and would be the best advertisement for a company (when people see a product in use).
I hope you understand the points I am making and I am curious about your constructive comment and reactions.
