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“).
