Tesla deserves the plaudits but its narrow market focus makes them so much easier to attain. The gains that GM, Ford, and Chrysler have made in the past couple of years are noteworthy, especially when one considers their broader market appeal.
Most people on the planet don’t really give a hoot about cars that start at 50k.

the simplest solution would fro the government to give every Tesla buyer a rebate of 50% of the purchase price. i would definetely consider buying one of these cars.
