Tesla is worth more than Ford? Something is wrong here.

How can they do better? See above. Also perhaps they should prove they have a viable product that can sustain sales without government incentives.
If you scaled down Ford's numbers to just that of their EV volume, what would that look like?
I'm not sure how to answer that hypothetical. Ford is a company with a diversified portfolio of products serving numerous market segments. Therefore they are profitable. Tesla isn't.
