Tesla is the undisputed king of electric vehicles. The Model S, Model 3, and Model X were groundbreaking cars in their own right, and there seems to be no end in sight for the California automaker. But one question remains: Why are established brands having such a hard time keeping up? Mercedes, Chevy, and others have all released their own EVs - but none of them have touched Tesla. What’s up? We’re gonna find out

Except for the Nissan Leaf, no automaker keeps producing an EV enough to make a 2nd generation. Not that the Leaf is very good in 2020, but if Nissan can get a lower cost source for improved batteries the Leaf could become a better Tesla competitor. Its all in the batteries, and the price.

Hello donut from the uk. I have an idea for a feature you could do, and cover Tickford and their production of hot fast fords. I owned a Ford Racing puma, a commercial disaster for Ford failing to hit the 1000 cars to be made (500 uk only models made). It was over priced not that quick, made no sense..... other than the fact it was a hoot to drive and pumped up styling. It was the forefather of the MK 1 focus RS which his was also finished by Tickford, (I have also owned). Tickford made hot Capris (British mustang from 60’s/70’s).

Tesla took a simple concept, made it look simple, but made it hopelessly complicated underneath. They reinvented every stupid detail until the unreliability of the rest if the vehicle made up for the inherent simplicity of the drivetrain. I was hoping that other manufacturers would make cars with the standard quality and reliability of regular cars without pointless features like multi articulated doors and door handles that rely on perfectly functional electronic systems. Tesla cant even glue in the Windows correctly and they decided to overcomplicate the simple stuff. I was really hoping that when Ford got in, they would make a comparable car with better proven ancillary hardware. Here they come with over the air updates and a copy of the same IPad hot glued to the dash interior. Maybe the F150 will be a regular truck with gas-version interchangeable parts that just has an electric drivetrain. If they do that they beat Tesla eventually. If they copy Tesla's stupidity and faults and are still behind on batteries and drivetrain, then they will be a distant 2nd or 3rd at best. Don't fix what isnt broken.

why aren't they making EV's more available through competitive marketing strategies? because they don't want to lose their oil sales money. no other reason. the power oil money gives them trumps their humanity 🤔🤷🏼‍♂️

TESLA: There's only a 5 year world supply for lithium batteries (and Tesla is using up too much of that for the few , compared to how little a smartphone uses for everyone). Current electrical infrastructure can't supply the electricity to all homes. Powerlines contribute to forest fires. Lithium batteries are mined by African children. Lithium batteries create toxic disposal wastes. There needs to be a law that prioritizes lithium for smartphones over electric cars because cars have petroleum and hydrogen alternatives. Providing more lithium batteries for EV cars is just opening a can of worms because the electrical grid cannot support every house. Not everyone can or wants to incur the cost of solar panels (which from my friend's experience only lasted 7-10 years) I have 4 cars, 2 cars (kids' cars) are parked outside. A battery manufacturer should sell to the highest payer. Ford, GM, and VW have deep pockets and they can pay more for the batteries and put Tesla out of business. An electric truck makes no sense because tests have shown that the battery drains faster when it has to pull. Hydrogen vehicles make more sense in trucks than EV. Hydrogen vehicles fuel up in 5 minutes like gas cars and they have a 1000mpg range; EV you have to wait 45+ minutes (and you have to wait for the guy in front of you to finish his charging) THere isn't a plugin at every corner like a a gas station and the charge is 50 minutes+ (assuming you aren't waiting for the guy before you to finish his charging) Gas stations pay tax to maintain roads, EVs don't That would cause a lot of unemployment.

One big unknown though... the conclusion of the video is that other manufacturers will have to adopt Tesla's model, but Tesla is operating under the same economic pressures that produced the current paradigm.... meaning it might be the other way around, that eventually Tesla will have to adopt their model in order to compete long term. People tend to forget that models do not come out of nowhere, they are the result of decades of economic pressures that reward companies that adopt them and punish ones that do not, and if you look at the history of the auto industry it is littered with companies that tried to operate differently and survived for a decade or two but eventually collapsed.

13:00 ish: I thought the original idea behind Teslas electric cars is that they're going to be open source and allow competitors to use their technology for their own cars, with the end goal being, getting electric cars out into the world. I guess now they gotta keep the shareholders happy?

GM had an electric car back in like 1990s or something, and they killed it and destoryed all of them, if they would have built on that tech they would have been HUGE by now with more advanced tech. But nope, the oil industry was like, lets hold off on this stuff....

Because it doesn't make sense to buy an electric car about 99% of the time when you are shopping for a new car. And the other 1% is just big enough for tesla and too small for any other car company. İ sincerely don't think future is electric.

I love the fact that these blokes regularly use references from Dragon Ball Z. As well as being petrol heads, while being proper MOPAR fans. My ULTIMATE Dream car is a 1970 440 SixPack Plymouth Hemi Cuda. If i can't ever get one of those, i would be very happy with the 1970 340 SixPack Hemi Cuda AAR. I really should have put this comment in the Up to Speed episode on the Hemi engine.

if only you made this video a day later... the list would be far too long and youd be talking like Munroe... you probably have a seizure like every engineer on the planet ... TESLA is basically if MIT was given an unlimited budget to create the ultimate car ... all options on the table . hell they probably considered a nuclear powered car , obviusly they looked at hydrogen and thought it was a stupid idea .. the guys at NASA would agree and they use hydrogen all the time , just imagine a trusting your 90 year old granddad at the hydrogen filling station , or even worse him driving it around , as if petrol wasnt already a bomb on wheels

Tesla knows to innovate and has the most efficient drivetrain yet. But a huge part of the car is not designed inhouse. Most parts of the Model S are German. For example the Suspension, the steering, the seats (in newer models), the audio system. Also parts of the self driving systems are from Bosch. Not to mention the german Robots Bildung all Tesla and Painting them. So of course Tesla is a huge success, but the did not build a car from scratch. They used a lot of established suppliers.

I'm not a big fan of electric cars. As long as there are few, the power grid will support the demand. When they are the majority in the world fleet ... it is not at all clear. Bulk electricity is simply impossible to stock and there will be spikes in demand, anyway. Recently, Elon Musk admitted his influence in the coup d'état in Bolivia, which replaced President Evo Morales with an ultra-right evangelical pastor, a very ignorant lady. As is known, Bolivia has almost all the lithium in the world. With scorn, Musk even said he would "sponsor scams around the world, against whoever is needed." For these reasons, I predict that the Tesla brand will always be absent from my life. I WILL NEVER BUY A TESLA, BITCH !!!

Why do you call it "failing" though? It's not like the other manufacturers were blindsided with the emergence of EV's. The volkwagen group has rescued Tesla multiple times when they were almost going bankrupt to encourage the technological advancements the company was making. Meanwhile, petrol cars are still very much wanted by the public. Could it not be that they are focusing on serving the customers to the needs they already have instead of trying to steal customers from an industry that is still comparably small?

The answer is the others still own and service over 99% of the world auto market. Remember that is everything from bikes to excavators to water craft. They're huge and it takes time to pivot such production. They have customer care etc chains too- Tesla has pretty much none of that. The coming competition will smash Tesla.

Lol your such a dough boy on this. 1st their car doesn't pay road taxes. I know I know but fair is tesla pays their taxes to use my road. Second the build quality problem is they burst in to fireballs because of the batteries. The motors need replaced at 75,000 miles and its not cheap at all. Finally the parts are absurdly expensive and impossible to obtain. Third battery cars hate cold weather and hot weather. 45° to 64° temperature car. Never mind the hours at the gas station to charge it. Btw a trillion calculations is a terraflop eg the ps 5 does 10 terraflops per cycle.

Other companies can't catch up because they don't have the talent. Elon is good at a lot of things, but he's great at head hunting and knows how to recognize and develop raw talent regardless of professional qualifications. VW failed on software because they didn't have the needed talent on the team.
