An article published 16 September by Tom Randall in Bloomberg states the famous declarations of Elon Musk, CEO of TESLA wanting a race for electric cars. Now, it begins.
In 2008 Tesla launched the “Roadster” and the new, electrical car didn’t just came in to the market as “the Green” car but also unaffordable, ever since, the automobile industry has witness a new niche and customers are willing to pay for expensive electric cars, with almost no competence, tesla became the market leader…
Until now, when General Motors (an automobile industry commonly picture associated to a dying legacy of over a century without adaptation to the latest tendencies and market trends.) released it 2017 electric car model, “The Chevy bolt” for only one third of Tesla Roadster model, $37,500.
Tesla’s most affordable car, which will also launch in 2017, is at $65,000.
The GM new model doesn’t not only represent a challenge in price but also in the capacity with its 238 range in miles vs. Tesla model 3, 215 ranges in miles.
This recent launches not only begin a price race among electric car, but besides confirming a stronger trend in electric car, puts the oil industry to wonder when would it rise considering the demand doesn’t seem to be rising from the automobile industry which, year with year leans more to develop cars that consumes less gas or no gas at all.
Would be very interesting to observe how all the tendencies in the automobile industry affect directly to the already troubled price of oil.
