I think Tesla have achieved their purpose. I am not a fan of their owner. The Cybertruck and Roadster are nowhere to be seen, even though the latter was announced in 2017 as a 2020 release.
Self driving is a lie.
Mercedes, BMW, Audi and Porsche are all catching up. CarPlay is a huge success and I'd guess that the same is true of Android Auto.
Model 3 facelift
I digress... overall the changes look small, but I saw a current Model 3 this past weekend and the headlights already look dated. The Model Y is basically a tall Model 3 so I wonder how this all looks when applied to that form factor.
If I had the money to drop on an EV, I wouldn't be spending it on a Model 3. It's not honest enough to quell range anxiety and Musk deserves no more of anyones money.
I'd opt for one of the following instead:
- BMW i4
- EQE (although larger than I'd like, where's the EQC Saloon, Mercedes?)
- Vauxhall Astra (today the plug-in hybrid might help quell any range anxiety)
- VW ID.3 (saw the ID.5 yesterday and it's an oddly shaped car, IMO)
- Kia EV6 (looks fantastic but looks very big in the flesh, so not at the top of my list)
Like I said, Tesla have achieved their stated purpose and unless they start delivering on their promises then I don't know how they can be taken seriously for much longer.
