OEMs have a big problem. Assuming they're even willing to put in a full effort to manufacture EVs they still have to rely on dealerships to get serious about selling them, too. As unlikely as it is that OEM executives 1) see the need, then 2) stand up to their shareholders and do this, it is even less likely that dealerships will put in any work to get serious about selling them--ultimately putting themselves and their OEMs with them, out of business. One of the few encouraging signs are the vague reports that Tesla has finally been "in talks" with an OEM about sharing the Supercharger Network. That's a big step in the right direction. But to complete the steps needed... they have to get around the dealership problem. Maybe Tesla will become a franchised dealer network for an OEM as well? It advances the Tesla mission, and they'd still make money from it--and frankly, w/ a lot less effort. There's already way more demand for (good) EVs than Tesla can supply, and doing this can only increase the demand. Whaddya think?
