The director of Tesla revealed who is the biggest competition to that electric car

A large number of companies are engaging in the production of electric cars, and many have been called “Tesla’s killers”, as a possible competition to one of the world’s largest manufacturers of electric vehicles. However, Martin Vijeha, investment director at Tesla, says the company sees carmakers with classic engines as the main competitor.

Electric cars are considered the future of traffic, and gasoline and diesel are obsolete technology that is slowly going down in history. However, the leaders of electric car companies think differently.

Martin Vijeha wrote on Twitter that more than 90 percent of the cars sold this year have traditional engines and that this is the main concern for “Tesla”.

“In the last five years, I have often been asked about competition. More than 90 percent of the cars sold this year have internal combustion engines. “They are losing market share compared to all electric car manufacturers, and I am surprised that this is not yet a generally accepted opinion,” wrote Vijeha.

The company “Tesla” is of a clear position that increasing the number of manufacturers of electric cars is a good thing, because it gives more choice to customers, writes “Motor1”. Thus, the founder and general director of that company, billionaire Elon Musk, repeated several times that he hopes that “Tesla” will motivate the rest of the industry to switch to electric propulsion.

That the growth in the number of electric car companies, at a time when most markets are held by diesel, petrol and slightly hybrid vehicles, is positive news for this type of factory, because there is enough space on the electric vehicle market.

That is how Peter Rollinson, the general director of “Lucid Motors” and a former employee of “Tesla”, often said that their “air saloon” model is not a competition to “Tesla”, but to “Mercedes S class”.
