Things are never as black and white as you imply, Tesla is "leading the charge" but it's coming at one heck of a price for them, the others sitting back does not mean they're idle in development, quite the contrary, they are choosing the entry points and timing that suits. All while Tesla has to do "everything", battery production establish charging grid, make affordable BEVs .....all of that is lots of pressure when you don't have "deep pockets" of a GM or Ford, they have the profit intake to keep funding BEVs until the balance point comes.Things don't work that way. You are either leading or falling behind. GM and Ford don't have the luxury of waiting. EVs are coming, Tesla or not. And VW and the Chinese brands are moving very aggressively.
Those are basically "compliance vehicles" and not really indicative of what's about to drop, Ford's Model E is basically a blue oval Tesla with Mustang styling, use of VW and Rivian as well as Ford's own car and Truck BEV platforms gets Ford in the door at a fraction of Tesla's start up cost....GM is most likely doing the same behind closed doors.Well, the "majors" have joined: Bolt, I-Pace, e-Tron Quattro, Leaf Plus are all here and are representative of what's coming from others in the near term.
