For many industry pundits and Wall Street analysts, the thesis was that Tesla would run into trouble once mainstream automakers got up to speed. After seeing the Audi e-tron SUV and Mercedes-Benz EQC, we were less than impressed. Hell, even the Porsche Taycan's range has been an utter let down.

And at the last major e-car premiere that Germany experienced this year, numerous Tesla Model 3s drove through the area after just a few weeks. So where are the electric models from Stuttgart?..."
