When a manufacturer dominates a given segment, rivals make it their mission to attack it head on, and sometimes those rivals are bigger and better-financed. After all, this is a market economy, and well, survival of the fittest and all that.
Especially in the automotive field.
In the EV sector, the company that has led the way and holds a massive head start is, of course, is Tesla. Like Tesla or not, you have to admit that without its contribution, other manufacturers would likely not be where they are in this field.
Tesla’s lead is starting to shorten though, in fact it has been for some time. Auto giants, Volkswagen leading the way, have the California-based EV maker in their sights. VW has been saying for years that it aims to, one day, sell more electric cars than Tesla.
