“While Tesla currently has a strong hold on the luxury electric market, I don’t think this will be the case after the arrival of the German premium offerings,” Wajih Hossenally, an automotive powertrain analyst with IHS Markit told media.
“Tesla has virtually zero competition – but this will change from 2019 onwards.”
Meanwhile, billionaire James Dyson has also outlined plans to build new testing facilities and invest another £116m to develop electric cars by 2020.
