For years, the doomsayers have been chanting in unison about how Tesla will be bankrupt soon. Yet the reality is people are flocking to buy electric cars from Tesla while turning up their noses at the vehicles coming from Jaguar and the legacy German car companies. Despite BMW’s self-proclaimed advances in battery and powertrain technology, it still refuses to build more pure battery electric cars. Jaguar and Audi struggle to build electric cars that have the range customers crave. And Mercedes can’t seem to sell its vaunted EQC at all despite a concerted marketing campaign, or has production problems.
