Watch and wait

Tesla was massively subsidized. Those subsidies are disappearing.

Worse, big car companies are being forced into the electric vehicles business thanks to scams like Volkswagen's DieselGate.

The big car companies now have to enter the electric car market with massive volume to comply with emissions standards. Their gamble of using fraud to comply failed.

How will Tesla survive competition and a withdrawal of subsidies?

Answer: It won't.
