Tesla is "cool". It's desired. The Bolt looks like a goofy economy EV. The i3, as much as I love mine, looks like a goofy EV. The e-Golf looks like a Golf. I don't think that's what people want. They just want to feel and look good driving it. Why pay more for an e-Golf when it looks like the cheaper, more practical Golf? Why pay for an i3 when it looks that goofy? Why get something as goofy as a Bolt when you can hold out for the ultra desired and cool Model 3? It excites, it stirs up conversations, it handles and performs like a sports car?

It's got juice on it, and that's more than a lot of established companies can say.
So you are telling me the Tesla Model X is not goofy? That thing looks like a rolling mouse with it's mouth wired shut.

Regardless, the funny looking Chevys and Toyotas seem to be selling.
