I like what VW is doing with the ID series. I also like what Hyundai/Kia are doing in the EV space. Now if they'll just make the things in any volume approaching what Tesla is doing with the Model 3 and plans to do with the Model Y, then they'd have something. And, sales/support for the EVs too, instead of your dealership folks pushing people to an ICE model. You hear about big production numbers, but nothing has materialized yet. Oh, and get a nationwide DC fast charging network that is reliable and seamless to use. I know Electrify America is working on it, but it isn't there yet on those points.
In the meanwhile, I'm happy with my Model 3. Getting ready to rack up 700 miles or so roundtrip this weekend going to an NDEW event 5 hours away.
I welcome all new EVs to the fold, but there have been a lot of "Tesla killers" that don't really amount to much of anything (poor efficiency, lower range, no charging network), so I'll believe it when I see it.
