T​esla has taken the world by storm and there’s no denying it. Why? Well it’s because they’re the only electric car company that actually make sensible cars and by sensible, I’m not talking about design but rather what it’s like to live with and the fact that you don’t have to spend years charging it but this hype for Tesla will dissappear soon because they’ve forgotten about the largest market: electric car fans that don‘t have too much money.

T​here’s no denying that Tesla have taken the world by storm but why, why are they the only electric car manufacturer That actually generate hype? Well, I think that it’s because they’re the only electric car manufacturers that make sensible cars And by sensible, I’m not talking about interior comfort, no. I’m talking about range and the fact that you can actually use it day to day.

B​ut here’s the thing- Tesla are missing the largest market: the >£30k group.

S​ee, the cheapest Tesla starts from around £40,000 and I know for a fact that not everyone is willing to spend that much money on a car so when the ID 3 R was unveiled, everyone knew that Tesla were in for trouble.

F​urthermore, not every electric car person wants a performance car meaning that the 200-300hp in the ID 3 range will suit them perfectly. Furthermore, there hasn’t actually been a proper electric city car with all the modern technology from a more premium vehicle.

T​hese facts combined mean that the VW ID 3 R will end Tesla.

  • Will it have 400 miles of range? Will it have nationwide recharging infrastructure? Then no, it will not “end Tesla” And by the time it’s released, Tesla will probably have over 500 miles of range.

  • Why does every new electric car has to end Tesla? Like the car market is big enough for both to coexist, id3 doesn't even directly compete with tesla. And it's probably not gonna outsell Tesla in the US. Don't get me wrong it looks great and for sure it's gonna sell well. But just like Android and iPhone, they can coexist.
