Yeah, it sounds like we are now at a turning point if the cars now rate their drivers and it’s no longer the other way around. It feels that the reference model is now the equipment, stuffed with plenty of technology and so-called artificial intelligence. So Tesla thinks, they are the master now, and we as drivers can only be less or max to 100% of the car.
Can other car manufacturers keep up with Tesla’s data advantage? Some claim that Tesla is six years ahead of the other car makers.
You can see that from different perspectives. Either purely from the standpoint of an electrical car maker. There I assume that the others like VW are picking up soon. Also from environmental point of view the others will get better when they are getting rid of the legacy topics like the high costs of making fuel engines.
Another aspect is the area of autonomous driving. Also there Tesla is quite far and the others are lacking behind.
But I agree with Robert Scoble that Tesla is far ahead with respect to software. And this is an important point, as it is really not easy to change a hardware company into a digital software company (In German „Vom Blechbieger zum Digital Unternehmen“).
The robotic vision of Elon Musk wasn’t wrong for automating the Model 3 assembly line. He was just ahead of his time.
