    Have to say Toyota completely missed the boat with their EV strategy. It was an opportunity they had right in front of them yet they failed to spot it. I doubt the Prius Prime will be competition for model 3 although some people might go for it instead of waiting for Model 3. It serves a slightly different market and so it will definitely sell but just not as much as they would have liked and certainly will not be a threat to Model 3.

    However, speaking as a Toyota hybrid owner myself I have to say though there is a lesson or two that Tesla can learn from Toyota. My car has an ICE and an electric drivetrain similar to most EVs although much less powerful. It will be 9 years old from new when I get my Model 3 and so far nothing has gone wrong - zero faults and it's an everyday car I trust will run easily for another 5 years without trouble.

    @Jayc you are right about Toyota's reliability, it is proved & sustained... I had a couple of Toyota's 25-30 years ago and already then they had that. Yet whatever happened to their designers?! :)

    Not likely to give up my Model ≡ for an alien cheese grater.
