A common Tesla myth is that you must be wealthy to own one. In a blog post on its website, Volkswagen says it "makes attractive and affordable electric cars for everyone. E-cars for millions – not for millionaires. "
It's a seemingly inclusive statement before you realize it's actually taking a tomb in Tesla. Although I personally think Tesla makes beautiful cars, Tesla has a reputation for selling cars that only a few can afford. This stems However, remembering Elon's original Secret Master Plan, it has always been clear that Tesla's long-term goal was to make electric transport affordable to the masses as quickly as possible. Today, Tesla Model 3 is a total bestseller worldwide because of its relatively low price.
Tesla may not be for everyone, since the starting price is actually around $ 40,000, but it's definitely not just for millionaires! take their kids to school, the couple that likes to take long road trips, small businesses and more.

Volkswagen's latest lie after Diesel Gate is to suggest that you need to be a millionaire to afford a Tesla
– Musk AF (@AfMusk) November 11, 2019  Rebranding is a big thing. It is good if Volkswagen is ready to offer serious electric deals. But there is no need to try to take swipes at Tesla. In addition, Tesla actually wins as long as someone else brings competing EVs to market. If everyone tries to make a "Tesla killer", Tesla's dreams come true. The more "Tesla killers" out there, the more people will buy EVs instead of fossil fuel cars.
The industry may see Tesla as an annoyance that is slowly becoming a threat to their profits, but the idea that someone is going to "kill" Tesla seems long-dated and must not be held by many auto execs. The usual story the shorts often make is that Tesla will go bankrupt next year, and that it won't be able after five or even three years. They think Tesla is a fad that will disappear. Much as many in previous generations thought about computers and the internet. However, experts in the actual automotive industry must now see that Tesla is more of a long-term leader than a fad.
Tesla's challenge to other automakers is simple: Develop or die.
